We have been proud to work with our team of top-ranking craftsman from Sakai, Osaka, who produce our Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan series of knives.
Their work is always impressive, with fine attention to details and excellent fit and finish.
This basic and classic Japanese Traditional Style knife is made with a core of the very popular, high purity, Hitachi White No2. Japanese high carbon steel, which is sandwiched between two layers of soft iron. The blade is carefully hand ground to create superb cutting geometry and it is beautifully hand polished. Indeed, the overall fit and finish of the knife is excellent.
This knife has a comfortable octagonal magnolia wood handle, which has a buffalo horn ferrule. For safekeeping, each knife comes with a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin.
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 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 the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
Great all purpose kitchen knife. Super fast delivery, great payment method
Very nice mid weight with nice convex grind and useable tip. Sakai dimensions. The finish is great too, with lines running parallel to the edge instead of perpendicular. Not sharpened OOTB so you have to put your own edge on it. Very very good value. I tried to buy another, but they didn't have any blonde ferrule left. (Koki please tell me if you guys receive blonde ferrule I will buy another one for my friend!)
It's been the first knife I have purchased from JCK, and after several weeks of use, I am very pleased. The knife came (by my standards) relatively sharp out of the box. The materials and fit and finish are very good for the price level in my opinion. The buying experience has also been great, with very fast delivery and solid packaging. I would certainly consider JCK again for another purchase.
A beautiful knife. Compared to the other "Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan"-knives, this one has a matte-finish on the blade - which is a nice touch, I think. The rounded edges are comfortable, the handle feels good - I recommend this knife.
This knife looks brilliant and has a great feel. Very happy with the purchase.
