We present here a collection of OKA Multi Layers knives that are hand forged by Katsushige Anryu who is rightfully proud of being one of the founders of Takefu Knife Village. 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.
As many of our more modern clients prefer a stainless knife, we requested that these knives were crafted with a VG10 core (HRC is 60-62) Handle is made of Rosewood with the sliver ring collar.
