Masakage's Anryu Aogami Range
Blacksmith Katsushige Anryu has created a beautiful and unique hammered finish to this range of knives.
This range is new to Cutting Edge Knives, we had heard so many good things we simply had to get them in stock! Aogami blue #2 steel is wrapped with stainless steel with a hammered finish. The striking visual of the hammer marks on the blade compliments the understated oval handle which is rosewood with black pakka wood ferrule.
Blue #2 steel is a tough steel with the ability to get really sharp, and with the knives being clad in stainless the knife is easy to take care of. The exposed carbon edge will patina over time but this just makes the knives more unique!
What you get
Beautiful blue fibre boxes with the Masakage logo and name in silver foil on the lid. On the inside you will find a blue stepped inlay and your beautiful knife of course, wrapped in Japanese newspaper by the craftsmen who made it. So while you're not working on your knife skills you can catch up your Japanese language skills. Talk about the gift that keeps on giving...
All our knives also come with free blue plasters just in case you're not ready for the sharpness! If you intend to use your knives regularly (and you should be) then we don't advise you to use the boxes for day to day storage, get a magnetic knife rack instead.
