Anryu Hamono Blue #2 Tsuchime Petty 130mm Ebony Handle


Based in Echizen city, 5th generation smith Takumi Ikeda took over the helm of Anryu Hamono after the retirement of his master Katsushige Anryu. 

Anryu Hamono blades offer a great price point for folks looking for blades that deliver performance. These are made from hand forged carbon steel with a hammered finish on the flat, and a sandblasted kasumi (hazy) finish on the bevel. Over time, patina will develop along the edge, a harmless aging process natural for carbon steel blades. To avoid developing rust, ensure the blade is cleaned and wiped dry whenever it is not in use. Because these are thin behind the edge, we recommend users cut with a gentle hand and use a soft wooden surface like our Kaneshige Hinoki Boards to maintain the sharp edge.

Note: if the kasumi finish fades over time, it can be touched up with Tosho’s in house kasumi powder.

A petty (utility) knife probably gets used most often after your all-purpose knives. It can be used to cut small fruits, vegetables, and even some smaller cuts of meats (and many many more things, like cutting through plastic wrapping from a grocery trip!) If you have one, for a quick meal for two, you may just get it done without a chef's knife.
