JCK Natures Gekko Series GE-3M Nakiri 165mm (6.4 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


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.

Gekko knife has a unique & beautiful Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) textured Damascus blade. They feature a hand sharpened and hand honed VG-10 stainless steel blade core that is clad on both sides by a 15-layer Damascus stainless steel (HRc. 60-61. 50/50 symmetrically ground double beveled edge).

Gekko knife uses a full-tang construction, and has Mahogany wood handle with a stainless steel bolster and handle rivets.

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.

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 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.

  • 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.

Good knife!

The back of the knife is not rounded so the edge are sharp on your index finger when you pinch grip. Also, the blade and the hilt is not one piece, but rather sandwiched by the two pieces of metal. This bothered me because I prefer one piece bolster/hilt so the crevices and edges doesn't get dirty (one piece hilts are much easier to clean because of the smooth surface). Otherwise, great knife, very sharp edge. The dimples are helpful for preventing sticking but not that much helpful.
