In Japanese, “Sakura” means " Spring Cherry Blossoms”. Just like the beautiful cherry blossoms of springtime, the JCK Natures Sakura knives have a vivid, impactful Damascus pattern that beautifully matches the natural grain pattern of their fine Cherry Wood Handles.
The attractive layered Damascus blades of the “Sakura” knives have a slightly upswept blade shape that handles well and cuts efficiently. The knives feature a VG-10 Stainless Damascus steel blade (HRc. 60-61) with a 50/50 symmetrical grind and each knife is hand sharpened and hand honed, ready for use.
Each “Haru-Sakura” knife is fitted with a comfortable oval-shaped Cherry Wood Handle that is fitted with a black pakka wood ferrule.
A protective wooden Saya (Sheath) that is suitable for your "Sakura" knife can be purchased separately. Wooden Saya of Nakiri.
The Nakiri is a double bevel edged knife that is rectangular in profile and has a tall, thin blade. It is popular throughout Japan and is often used by home cooks for quickly and efficiently chopping, slicing or mincing vegetables and fruit. It is becoming increasingly popular with vegetarians.

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.
I got other similar knifes from JCK (as I am so satisfied with them). This knife is mainly used by my wife and she is really satisfied with it. As I am responsible for sharpening, with VG-10 steel, it's easy to get the edge.
This site was recommended by a friend and I just love this Nakiri. This knife is wonderful and sharp, sharper than the US would allow. I can use it for everything including veggies, fruits, and meat. The handle is so comfortable in the hand. I used to hate the prep but this knife has made it fun. I first bought this knife for myself and loved it so much I bought 2 more as gifts
My purchase experience was first class, very smooth transaction, and the knives arrived earlier than estimated. Will purchase again with out hesitation.
Did some research and found this knife. Great value. Arrived much quicker than expected. Gift for my son for his birthday. He tried it out and loves it. Will consider other purchases.
My JCK Natures Sakura Series HS-4 Nakiri is the sharpest kitchen knife I own. I have a serious collection of knives for our kitchen, this one is a pleasure to use and it slices and dices everything with ease. Of course it is not made for bones but cutting everything else is such a pleasure. Once you understand how to hold the blade, which is substantial, cutting vegetables, fruits, cheeses and meats is effortless and you cut with prescision. I like buying from Japanese Chef;s Knife as they offer great prices, quick shipping and they stand behind their products. Yes i would buy this product again.
