JCK Natures 青雲 Blue Clouds Series BC-2 Bunka (Kiritsuke) 190mm (7.4 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


 Our "JCK Natures" house brand knives have proven to be some of JCK’s most popular knives. Each one of them has a unique appearance, fine characteristics and offers great value for money. Our JCK Natures Knives are a fusion of the craftsman’s special artistic techniques and the magnificent scenery of almighty nature.

 At the end of the year 2019, after a long wait, we are finally introducing the new JCK Natures 青雲 "Blue Clouds" knives, which have just been finished. We are very excited to introduce these new products to you.

 The "Blue Clouds" knives have an impressive mirror polished blade with a Tsuchime Hammered Texture. The rust-resistant AUS-10 High Carbon Stainless Steel blade core is clad with Stainless Steel and has a stylish, practical Kiritsuke blade shape (Bunka), which is very similar to a multi-purpose Santoku or Bunka knife and is very capable of performing a wide variety of cutting tasks. Heat treated to HRc. 60-61, the double bevel edged blade has a 50/50 symmetrical grind.

 The Polished, Vivid Blue Pakka Wood Handle Scales beautifully match the mirror polished Kiritsuke blade, they are also strong and resist both water and 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 knife features a full-tang construction, a forged stainless steel bolster and stainless steel handle rivets.

 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 Bunka is a general-purpose kitchen knife that used to be just as popular as the Santoku, but has become less commonplace in recent years. With its tall blade, the Bunka knife is particularly suitable for cutting vegetables or fruit and the triangular tip area is particularly useful for detailed work and cutting fish or meat.

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.

  • 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.

  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

Blue Clouds Bunka BeBop

This is my first experience with a knife from an independent blacksmith, all my other knives are from big companies (Global, Tojiro) also my first hammered and mirror finish blade. First off this knife is beautiful and very well made. I have a regular grip (not pinch) and I really enjoy the western style handle and the kiritsuke shape is my preference, my previous goto knife being the Global G-4 asian chef knife, I was not disappointed. So far the stainless steel blade has kept it’s finish beautifully. When I first saw it I was worried about the finish because it looks so shiny and new. It wouldn’t have bothered me if it dulled but it has not yet. Food sticking while cutting is what I would expect, I am very impressed and happy with my purchase, if I had to find a con, and this would be a small con, it would be that it wasn’t as sharp out of the box as my globals were but a couple minutes on my polishing stone followed by a strop and it was razor sharp. I mean it was sharp out of the box and I would imagine most people wouldn’t notice at all but I keep my knives extremely sharp. Very happy with my first purchase from JCK, I am sure it won’t be my last.
