Katsushige Anryu (Ikeda)

Forging knifes is in the blood of Katsushige Anryu-san (1942). His family started forging in 1870 and Katsushige-san learned the arts and crafts of forging from his father Katsutoshi Anryu after he finished primary school in 1959. He is a 4th generation blade forger and has been working for over 50 years as a forger. One of his famous sayings is:

“Iron is alive, it can live and it can die depending on the blacksmith.”

Because of his age from 2019 Katsushige does not forge blades anymore. All Anryu blades are forged by his successor Ikeda-san.
