Katsushige Anryu – Sujihiki 270mm


Katsushige Anryu

Knife making is in Anryu san’s blood. His family started as knife makers in the early 1870’s. He started apprenticing as a knife maker under his father, Katsutoshi Anryu, after graduating high school in 1959. He is a fourth generation knife maker and has been working as a blacksmith for well over 50 years. Anryu San is also one of the founders of Takefu Knife Village in Echizen, Japan.

The blade is made from Aogami # 2 (Blue Paper # 2 ) steel with a stainless steel cladding. This adds strength to the inner core while protecting it from corrosion.

You can also purchase a Sabitoru Rust Eraser and Camellia oil for maintenance.


Sujihikis can be seen in one of two ways: first, as analogs to the familiar western styled slicer; or second, as a western styled, double bevel version of the single bevel Yanagiba famously used for preparing sushi. Sujihiki Slicers commonly range from 240mm to 300mm.

Care Instructions:

  • Wash and dry the blade by hand immediately after use. Dishwashers are very bad for all knives.
  • Use a soft cloth to wash the blade. Avoid abrasive dish scrubbers and powders as these can damage the finish of your beautiful knife.
  • Do not cut through bones. You can certainly cut along/beside bones, but do not cut into bones. This can, at worst, chip the blade.
  • Never use this knife to cut frozen food. I’m sure you have a 4×4 somewhere in your kitchen for this job.
  • Never twist or cleave the blade.
  • Always use a wooden or plastic cutting board. Never cut on bamboo, glass, marble, slate, a plate, china, marble, arborite or anything harder than steel.
  • Store knives in a way that the blades will not knock into each other.
  • Never transport knives unprotected.
