The master smith Katsushige Anryu is the progeny of a knife-making family fashioning high-quality kitchen knives in the fourth generation. The smith was awarded the title of »Dento-Kogeishi« - a »master of traditional crafts« - in honour of his work. The blade consists of 33 layers in total that create a distinct and delightfully appealing structure. The cutting layer is made of rustproof VG-10 steel, and the outer layers are also rustproof to ensure easy care. The octagonal, brown sandalwood handle lies below a ferrule of black wood laminate. The blade bears the smith's signature and is double-bevelled. Hardness 60 HRC.
