The Polished, Vivid Blue Pakka Wood Handle Scales beautifully match the mirror polished VG-10 Tsuchime Damascus blade and the knives have an excellent overall level of fit & finish and quality. The handle material is strong, resists water and resists shrinkage. The combination of the stylish blade and attractive blue handle reminded me of a beautiful, expansive sky and clouds, hence the name "Blue Clouds" 青雲.These knives feature a full-tang construction, a forged stainless steel bolster and stainless steel handle rivets / pins.
We especially recommend our JCK Natures "Blue Clouds" Knives to customers who are considering buying their first Japanese knife and want to own a moderately priced, high quality, practical, attractive and very fashionable knife.
The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe quality and performance of Japanese knives are best in the world and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife can be your special cooking partner for long time.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
This knife is amazing and perfectly balanced. I use it mainly for vegetables and meat fillet to make slices. It is also possible to butcher a chicken, however, it could be more comfortable to use another knife with the less wide blade (thinking to buy additional knife from this series). After month of usage It is still sharp even after cutting some chicken bones (didn't notice how my girlfriend did it). However, I'm preparing myself to not destroy it after sharpenning.
I bought 3 knifes of this series from JCK. At first, many thanks for the very fast shipping to Hamburg Germany. As expected, the knifes are made in a very good quality. Beautiful blue wood handles, a cool polished and hammered knife surface. As well as a very nice damascus grain. At last I can fully recommend this JCK knifes. In my opinion the price is very fair for the given quality. BR
The knife is beautiful and looks exactly as on the pictures. It was shipped very fast and was properly packaged so it does not get damaged. As expected the knife came really sharp. The wooden Saya is a perfect addition to the knife because not only does it look good but it also protects the knife when transporting or storing it. The knife was a gift for my mother and she is really happy with it. I am definitely going to buy another one in the future for myself.
The Quality and beauty of anything you can buy from JCK is unrivaled. They provide amazing service and lightning shipping. I bought this knife for a friend for a birthday present and they were amazed at how beautiful and sharp it is. For the money, you won't find anything better.
Having bought this knife has been a great success. It was a birthday present for my husband. It is the first knife of such quality and aesthetics in our kitchen, and I am already looking forward to having more objects of this new art for me. Many thanks to the masters and sellers!
