Katsushige Anryu

Master Blacksmith

"Iron is alive, it can live and it can die depending on the blacksmith"

Knife making is in Anryu san's blood. His family started making knives in the early 1870's. Katsushige is now the fourth generation to continue this legacy. He started apprenticing under his father, Katsutoshi Anryu, after graduating high school in 1959 and now with well over 50 years of experience he continues to forge incredible blades. Anryu san is always striving to make better knives that in turn make the cooking process that much more enjoyable.
