From my first glance of this beautiful knife, I knew it should be called "Gekko”, or 月光, which means "Moonlight" in Japanese. From every angle, the Gekko knife reminded me of the way that the shape and light of the Moon changes each night.
Beautifully mirror polished VG-10 stainless steel blade core that is clad on both sides by a 33 layer Damascus stainless steel (HRc. 60-61. 50/50 symmetrically ground double beveled edge).

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.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife, which has good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However even stainless steel blade kitchen knife has rust situation if you leave it with wet condition.
This is an incredible knife, the cutting quality is great and its stayed sharp for a good while already! Great start into knives with good quality, very much worth its price and I really recommend it. I'll definitely buy from here again! Shipping was incredibly fast, too. I had it in like a week.
I bought this knife in order to upgrade my cooking experience, and it sure did! The grip is comfortable, the knife super sharp (feels like cutting butter when you cut a tomato) and it feels very durable. The aesthetics are also splendid! For me this is my first Japanese knife, and for a first one I think it’s an excellent choice. I was first a bit afraid to buy a large knife (8”) so I almost bought the sontuko version. I’m happy I bought the chef knife version as it is more versatile and lets you really control well also small cuts (like garlic) and also big ones (like fish and meat). The service is also amazing! Got to me from Japan to Israel in less than a week and for a low delivery price! You don’t get this even from Amazon.
The knife arrived in Europe within a week, delivered to my doorstep by FedEx. I was joyful when I unwrapped it and looked at it in awe. It is such a beautiful piece of work and incredibly sharp. I can definitely recommend buying this knife for yourself or as a gift.
Fantastic knife! Sharp, beautiful and quality materials. Was able to step up my cooking with it.
We love the new 210mm JCK Natures “Gekko Kagami” knife, it is perfect for the larger carving needs and a great addition to our 180mm, 135mm and 80mm Gekko Natures knife set purchased last year. After one year of use the knives remain razor sharp and make food preparation quick and easy. The artistry of the design on the blade adds to the beauty of the set.
