Availability: Normally ships the same day


For nearly a decade, we have been working with a small selection of top-ranked Japanese forge smiths to make Traditional Forged Knives for our Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan brand.

Due to the forge smith’s extensive experience in hammer forging and traditional handcrafting processes, their special effort and their continuous research, we can now offer our customers traditional forged knives in a variety of premium Japanese steels.  

The Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan YUTAKA 豊佳 Series are Special Limited Edition versions of our Limited Production Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Traditional Forged Knives. The YUTAKA 豊佳 Series harmoniously marries Traditional Handcrafted high-end knife blades with Contemporary, Stylish Wa Handle Designs. 

This beautiful Damascus Kiritsuke is forged and hand crafted by passionate forge smith Sukenari using R-2 steel. R-2 (Also known as SG-II ) is a high-quality Powdered Metallurgy (P.M.) High Speed Tool Steel from KobelcoR-2 has a very rich chemical composition, which includes Carbon 1.25-1.45 %, Chromium 14- 16%, Molybdenum 2.3- 3.3 %, and Vanadium 1.8- 2.2 %.

Master Hanaki, the President of Sukenari, has crafted these very practical and special Powdered High Speed Tool Steel knives with an R-2 blade core / cutting edge (HRC. 63) and attractive Wavy Damascus cladding.

 

Why do JCK work closely with Sukenari to produce these R-2 Damascus Knives ?

 

 Sukenari has been famous for making traditional Japanese Knives for many years, but this forward-looking company is always busy researching and challenging themselves to produce really special knives made from high-end and exotic steels. 

 Combining over 80 years of knife making experience with their knowledge of ancient forging techniques, Sukenari is able to craft knives with the outstanding cutting performance and practicality that culinary professionals demand.

 R-2 is a well respected Powdered High Speed Tool Steel that Master Hanaki believes is one of the most practical cutlery steels available because it can provide an excellent blend of high cutting performance, edge retention, corrosion resistance and ease of maintenance. Unlike knives made from very hard Powdered High Speed Tool Steels, such as ZDP-189, R-2 can still be sharpened easily, without expensive specialist whetstones, and it offers better price-performance.

 

 

What is the secret behind the high cutting performance of these R-2 Damascus Knives?

 

The secret is a slightly convex blade, which is very thin behind the edge. This ideal blade profile is created by the sensitive touch and skill of an experienced craftsman, who uses a MIZU-TO 水砥 (A large, rotating, wet grinding wheel) to shape the blades by hand.

Sukenari have leveraged all of this expertise to make R-2 steel knives with a Simple & Beautiful Wavy Damascus pattern, extra high-cutting performance and excellent edge retention. We believe Sukenari’s core brand concept —Utilizing modern Japanese steels to produce professional-quality, practical knives with high cutting performance— is perfectly complimented by the Simple Beauty of these Damascus knives. We hope you will try them and enjoy this wonderful cutting performance and quality for many, many years in to the future.

 

To enrich your cooking experience and suit a wide variety of needs and preferences, this Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan R-2 Clad FRDYP-28 Kiritsuke 210mm features beautiful Octagonal Camphor Burl Wood Handle with Marble Color Water Buffalo Horn Ferrule.  A matching Handcrafted Magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin is also included with the knife.

We hope you can see and feel the craftsman’s spirit and passion for creating knives with next-level cutting performance and originality.

The Kirisuke-Gyuto has a very similar blade profile to the ‘regular’ Gyuto, but it has what is commonly known as a 'reverse tanto' tip, or ‘clipped point’, which is very useful for precision cutting. Apart from this difference, the Kirisuke-Gyuto functions in the same way as the ‘plain' Gyuto knife.

 The double bevel edged Kiritsuke might be compared to a combination of the Nakiri, Gyuto and the Sujihiki. It is a very versatile knife that can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto.

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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.

  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • 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.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.
