Product description

The knife you described is a handcrafted piece from Anryu Hamono, a workshop located in Echizen, Japan. Anryu-san, the lead blacksmith, has recently entrusted his business to his apprentice, Ikeda-san, who now manages the workshop and handles most of the work. Here are the details of the knife:

Workshop: Anryu Hamono
Lead Blacksmith: Ikeda-san
Location: Echizen, Japan
Knife Specifications:

Weight: 2.9 ounces
Blade Length: 151 mm (5.125 inches)
Overall Length: 280 mm
Thickness at Heel: 2.6 mm
Blade Height: 32 mm
Construction:
This knife is hand-forged by Katsusige Anryu, a fourth-generation blacksmith, using a stainless clad Aogami 2 carbon steel core. The stainless cladding provides added durability and reduces the risk of rusting. The knife features a horn ferrule and a wenge handle, adding to its aesthetic appeal.

Blade Characteristics:
The core of the knife is made from hard carbon steel, Aogami 2, which is known for its excellent edge retention and sharpness. The iron cladding enhances the durability of the blade. With use, the entire blade will develop a patina, especially when cutting acidic foods. It is important to take special care to prevent rusting. Avoid leaving the knife wet and always hand wash and dry it after use. It is not dishwasher safe. When it comes to cutting boards, hardwood-end grain or softwood long grain boards are preferred, while bamboo and plastic boards should be avoided. If rust appears, it can be removed with a light abrasive.

The knife crafted by Anryu Hamono represents the skill and craftsmanship of Ikeda-san, who now leads the workshop. With its high-quality materials and traditional forging techniques, this knife offers a unique cutting experience. However, it is essential to follow the care instructions provided to maintain its performance and prevent rust.
