Aogami # 2 (Blue Steel # 2)
Oval Cherry wood handle with a resin collar
Masakage Mizu Collection is handmade by Anryu san. Knifemaking is in Anryu san’s blood. His family started as knives 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.
The Blade of the Masakage Mizu is super thin and cuts like a razor. The Hard Aogami #2 steel is laminated between softer layers
of carbon steel.
These knives have been named Mizu (water) as the blue/black Kurochi finish gives the impression of cold, deep water. Paired with an oval cherry wood handle these knives represent excellent bang for the buck.
Because the blade is not stainless it requires a bit more care. Keep the blade dry to avoid tarnish
and if you ever see a bit of rust on the blade remove it immediately with a coarse dish scrubber and soapy water.
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.
