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.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, hard foods such as lobster and crab which have hard surface.
  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

Beautiful knife, punches above the price tag.

This is a gorgeous knife. The blade is a high-polish hammered look that really outshines any knife in the $130-150 range, and almost every knife I looked at in the sub-$200 range. It arrived looking perfect and has maintained its edge and beauty after 45 days of home kitchen use. The handle is a beautiful hue of blueish purple and really stands out in the kitchen. The blade design it incredibly functional, working somewhere between a santoku and and a nakiri, allowing a lot of uses. It is well balanced, sharp, and feels perfect when you use it. Last but not least, the shipping was incredibly fast and the customer service was very responsive. Highly recommend.

Beautiful knife

Comfortable handle and nice balance. Quite sharp out of the box. I’ve been looking for a not to expensive Kiritsuke/Bunka, and I think it’s hard to find a better deal than this. Extremely fast shipping! I’ve now bought a total of seven knives (and stones) from JCK, and every order had been shipped quickly and without problems.
