JCK Original Kagayaki Basic Series Petty (120mm and 150mm, 2 sizes)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


KAGAYAKI Basic Series” knife is made with V-Gold No.1 stainless steel, heat-treated to HRc. 60. This beautiful sparkling blade is meticulously hand finished and their smooth pakkawood handles will fit your hand comfortably. We think that in terms of quality control and cutting performance this knife is a work of art, it will bring joy to home cooks and chefs alike.

Kagayaki Basic Series knives are made by Mr. Gotou’s fine Craftsman Team. For 40 years, it has been Mr. Gotou’s goal to make highly functional blades that have excellent cutting performance, blade geometry, edge sharpness and durability. He has made knives for many famous Japanese retailers and knife companies, and we recommend his knives with confidence.

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.

 

Characteristics and Difference of Regular Version and ES Version

Both Regular Version and ES version are hand sharpened by skillful and experienced Master Craftsman.

Hereby we introduce the characteristics and difference of Regular Version and ES Version.

  • Regular Version has good enough sharpness and you can start using it without sharpening process and enjoy good cutting performance. One of the benefits for choosing the Regular Version is you can re-sharpen and make your own final sharp edge by yourself for your own cutting needs and preference. Advanced, Experienced and serious users can understand how important it is and this benefit.
  • ES version has much steeper and thinner edge which makes outstanding and maximized cutting performance. We have received many requests from our customers for the fully sharpened edge knives when they start using the knives. This is our recommendation for your needs.

Master Craftsman modifies edge shape and bevel for left hand use by hand sharpening process at the following additional cost:

  • Petty + US$6
  • Santoku, Gyuto + $10
  • Western Deba, Chinese Cleaver, Slicer + $10
  • Honesuki, Sujihiki 20% extra of the regular price, because we need to change the grinding geometry from the beginning step for 100% left handed version. 

Left handed versions are normally in stock for immediate shipping. However, when it became out of stock, please allow 3 to 6 days for shipping.

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

  • After using, please hand wash it and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. (Includes bolster and handle part)
  • 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, hard foods such as lobster and crab which have hard surface.
  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

    Excellent, almost perfect

    I bought it as a knife for my wife, the Santoku is too big and heavy for her. After a week of use, 30% of the time I cut with this knife. An ideal blade, hard enough, not brittle, perfectly cuts and keeps sharpening. The tip of the blade is like a needle, which is also very convenient. Sharpening is beyond praise, it is really extra sharp Of the minuses: 1. Too light for me, 30g would be nice for comfort, don't feel confident or balanced when cutting 2. Heel of the blade has very sharp and at a right angle. The index finger is perfectly pierced by it at the time of use. If the angle was larger, then there would be less blood 3. I don't really like the look of the handle, it's not very attractive. But that's my problem because the functional handle is great. But the knife is beautiful, I recommend everyone to add it to the kitchen
