JCK Natures Deep Impact Series DI-3 Nakiri 165mm (6.4 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

When people select own knife, cutting performance and edge retention are always one of the priority list. Moreover, it will be great if the knife does not require much additional care and attention in terms of daily maintenance,

This “Deep Impact” knife matches aforementioned preferences very well.

Its blade is made of Japan’s premium high carbon steel, Aogami Super (“Blue Super Steel”), which is sandwiched between two layers of soft stainless steel and then heat treated to HRc. 64-65.

The handle is made from black paper Micarta, which is a very durable and stable material. It is water-resistant, and will not shrink or crack in the same way that wood does.

The Nakiri is a double bevel edged knife that is rectangular in profile and has a tall, thin blade. It is popular throughout Japan and is often used by home cooks for quickly and efficiently chopping, slicing or mincing vegetables and fruit. It is becoming increasingly popular with vegetarians.

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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy the fine craftsmanship and its sharp edge of your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for a long time.



This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for a long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade and keep it in a dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Fun knife

    My first nakiri. I really like aogami super, it sharpens very well and this knife is makes it a joy to work through a pile of vegetables. My video shows scratches and some mild patina on the aogami after 2 years of use.

    Simply the best

    I have a variety of fantastic knives from JCK but this one takes the cake. Amazing sharpness and ease of use. Aogami Super is so easy to sharpen and corrosion resistant with the stainless clading. What else could you want.

    JCK Natures Deep Impact Series Nakiri

    Bought this to complete my collection of 2 other knives from the same series, a Santoku and a Gyuto for home use. Waited quite a while for stock to be available. Good value carbon steel knife with quality finishing and comfortable balanced feel in the hand. Very sharp and manoeuvrable blade makes food preparation enjoyable.

    Koooof this things mean

    Never had used a Nikiri knife until recently so I went to find another great option other than the shun I tried for some time. So naturally I came to JCK and came across this one. I choose it over the Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan because I wanted one with fairly easy maintenance. I’m am so happy it fulfilled all my expectations and then some. The edge develops a defined beauty the more you use it and it darkens. You can see the work that was put into this knife. It’s so light you may forget it’s in your hand :D It’s great for everyday use and can really put in some detailed work. It minces like a champ and devours veggies like a beast. Sooo pleased and grateful for the reviews below that helped me make my decision. I will be back for more!
