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 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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
I've had this knife for a year now - I resisted reviewing it earlier, as a good product shows its real qualities only over time. This knife has met and exceeded all expectations. It has taken on a beautiful patina, it remains that sharpest knife I have, and it feels balanced and great to handle. This is not a fancy looking knife, but a workhorse and its gorgeous. Get one if and when it is back in stock. As to buying from JCK - I bought another knife I love from them.. fast delivery, great value, excellent quality.. I look to them for all my future knife needs...
Perfect blade - Kiváló penge
I believe the JCK Nature Deep Impact series has the best value after taking into consideration cost, hardness of cutting edge, maintenance, looks, and quality of workmanship. I have previously bought the Natures Deep Impact paring knife and use both the paring knife and santoku knife everyday.
love this knife. super sharp, great feel in the hand.
The CK Natures Deep Impact Series DI-2 Santoku is an excellent knife - high quality, sharp, and a clean look!
