JCK Natures Gekko Kiwami Series GEK-1 Petty 135mm (5.3 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


This high-grade version of the popular Gekko Damascus knife is truly worthy of the name “Gekko Kiwami” (Premium).

 After listening to the craftsman’s explanation about how these new Damascus knives are made, we recognized that their quality exceeds that of the original Gekko knife, due to the extra care and attention taken during their making process.

 Gekko Kiwami knife undergoes a special heat treatment process that uses a bath of molten salt, this allows very accurate temperature control and is a reliable way to create blades with a specific Rockwell hardness. It is often used for the production of small batches of blades, especially high quality knives and expensive custom knives.

 Gekko Kiwami knife has a natural-looking style, and that the polished layers of the beautiful unique & beautiful Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) textured Damascus blade. They feature a hand sharpened and hand honed VG-10 Nickel Damascus stainless steel blade (HRc. 60-61).

 The handle is made of black pakkawood and the knife has a stainless steel bolster, which provides improved durability and good blade balance. The handle and bolster have a nice rounded shape that allows the knife to be held comfortably and securely.

 Gekko Kiwami knife includes a wooden Saya (Sheath) with a decorative black lacquer finish, which nicely complements the Gekko Kiwami's black pakkawood handle and also the aesthetics of the Damascus blade.

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.

This knife has double bevel edge 70/30 which is suitable for right hand use.

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 fine craftsmanship and spirits from your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knives 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.

  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

    Pretty good!

    Nice knife! It is on the thick side tho, so it doesn’t cut as smoothly as I would like. Which is fine I guess, considering the low price and good quality steel.

    Well-made knife

    It's a beautiful, albeit somewhat showy knife. It's extremely well made, the craftsmanship is uncanny. I have only two minor quandries: it's not double-beveled as stated in the description, and it loses edge quite fast even with moderate workload, so it's not a "working mule" model, rather a once-in-a-time tool for delicate work. A nice product nonetheless.
