The Aogami Super Tsuchime (Hammered) line by master Katsushige Anryu. As the head of blacksmith guild of Takefu Knife Village, master Anryu's work is often considered to be one of the best from Takefu area. His knife is super thin behind the edge and the heat treatment is second to none. The hammered finish gives a rustic touch to the blade and Echizen's AS is a great pleasure to use. The stainless cladding is perfect for anyone who wishes to taste the magic of carbon steel yet afraid of the iron cladding getting rust.
