This laminated knife looks simple and classic but, once you hold them in your hands for the first time, you will sense the passion and vision with which they were made. The blade is beautifully hand polished to a shiny satin finish, and the blade spine and choil are also polished for better appearance and improved comfort. The level of fit and finish are beyond expectation for the price point of the knife.
The Blue Steel No. 2 (Hitachi Aogami #2; HRc. 63) core is sandwiched between two layers of soft stainless steel. This means that you can enjoy the exceptional sharpness and edge retention offered by a premium Japanese high carbon steel, and also the improved corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance offered by stainless steel. Consequently, we highly recommend this knife to first-time users of carbon steel knives.
This knife features a classic design, a comfortable black pakkawood handle, and a stainless steel bolster for better balance and improved durability. The fine blade edge is hand sharpened on whetstones by experienced Master Craftsmen, and is ready for use straight out of the box.
A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.
Notice* Experienced Master craftsman makes final sharp blade edge with hand sharpening process by whetstone. You can enjoy outstanding cutting performance ready to use out of the box when received. This sharpening process may remain some grind marks on both sides of blade.

For your information, many of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.
However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.
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.
The knife arrived very sharp, but soon the blade got dull. I sharpened the Blue Steel No.2 knife together with all my knifes (using a ***.1000/6000 grinding stone), but realized that I didn't get the blade as sharp as the VG10 & R2 knifes. I spent extra time, but somehow the blade didn't get sharp. Confirmed it with cutting a tomato, which didn't work well. To me it seems that stainless steels with lots of carbides are easier to sharpen with a grinding stone than this carbon steel. Also found that the carbon steel put on a patina, but that can be polished off with the rough side of a sponge.
price and quality ratio. Sharp, thin blade, comfortable for my hand even though I have rather big palms and long fingers (or maybe I just do prefer smaller handles), very precise as well. Looking good also. Would definitely buy again.
Very good experience every time i order from JCK, Been a regular since 2013. Always quick delivery, and the customer service is helpful. As a chef and knife lover, I recommend this website. VG10 knives are probably my favourite.
The whole blade is a joy to use, easy to sharpen and its just honestly so beauitful. The cladding makes the knives look really nice and gives you the best of both worlds for steel. They are quite comfortable to use compared to my shun petty knives. The only issue I have is that when you set the knife down on the table it balances more on the handle side and doesnt sit flat on a table. This causes the knife to easily "spin" around on its handle and I can imagine it would get annoying if I was at work and my knife get moved around alot. Its not a huge deal and quite easy to fix with something that gives the handle grip to the table or give it more weight like a rubber band or small piece of tape.
I love this knife its the perfect size and has a great choil, perfect for slicing scallions, carving fruits, fish, or smaller meats.
