Our Special Craftsman Team specializes in making only the highest-grade of Japanese traditional-style knives, which can only be produced using time-consuming hand work and extraordinary attention to detail during every step of hand making.
The blade is made from solid Swedish stainless steel (HRc. 60), which is well known for its purity and fine grain structure. The combination of this steel and the finely sharpened blades of the knife, mean they are particularly good for precise or detailed cutting tasks.
Japanese traditional-style octagonal handle is made from magnolia wood, and have a water buffalo horn ferrule. Each knife also includes a matching magnolia wood Saya (“Sheath”) for safekeeping.
The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

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 handed 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.

Another great knife from JCK. Thin blade, very lightweight, good, stainless steel that takes a good edge and is easy to resharpen. I went with the 180mm version which feels very agile. Craftsmanship is very good, no complaints here. Rounded edges and the knife feels very comfortable in the Hand ... I love it! Would buy it again.
This knife very quickly has become my new every day knife. Great grip and feel to the handle. I love this knife.
