JCK Natures Sakura Series HS-4 Nakiri 165mm (6.4 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

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.

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.

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

    JCK Natures Sakura Series HS-4 Nakiri 165 mm

    This was my first knife purchase from JCK. I wanted to experience the quality of a handmade Japanese knife, and was very happy with this purchase. This knife can be described as a unique work of art, a precision instrument, a joy to use and look at, and ranks as the best kitchen knife of this type that I have ever owned and used. There is so much difference in the quality of the blade and overall workmanship, when you compare a handmade knife like this one, with a mass produced knife. I think I chose the right size and model of knife, because cutting vegetables with this Nakiri became an effortless, aesthetic experience, almost like playing a familiar musical instrument. I look forward to gradually replacing my old set of kitchen knives with handmade knives from JCK. If you appreciate fine quality tools, this is the place to shop. The express shipping service was also much faster than I expected--just three days from order to delivery. I would recommend this product. Stephen Q.

    Another great knife from JCK

    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.

    First and best Asian knife

    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.
