Our "JCK Natures" house brand knives have proven to be some of JCK’s most popular knives. Each one of them has a unique appearance, fine characteristics and offers great value for money. Our JCK Natures Knives are a fusion of the craftsman’s special artistic techniques and the magnificent scenery of almighty nature.
At the end of the year 2019, after a long wait, we are finally introducing the new JCK Natures 青雲 "Blue Clouds" knives, which have just been finished. We are very excited to introduce these new products to you.
The "Blue Clouds" knives have an impressive mirror polished blade with a Tsuchime Hammered Texture. The rust-resistant AUS-10 High Carbon Stainless Steel blade core is clad with Stainless Steel and has a stylish, practical Kiritsuke blade shape, which is very similar to a multi-purpose Santoku or Bunka knife and is very capable of performing a wide variety of cutting tasks. Heat treated to HRc. 60-61, the double bevel edged blade has a 50/50 symmetrical grind.
The Polished, Vivid Blue Pakka Wood Handle Scales beautifully match the mirror polished Kiritsuke blade, they are also strong and resist both water and shrinkage. The combination of the stylish blade and attractive blue handle reminded me of a beautiful, expansive sky and clouds, hence the name "Blue Clouds" 青雲.
These knives feature a full-tang construction, a forged stainless steel bolster and stainless steel handle rivets.
We especially recommend our JCK Natures "Blue Clouds" Knives to customers who are considering buying their first Japanese knife and want to own a moderately priced, high quality, practical, attractive and very fashionable knife.
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 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 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.
There was no Kiritsuke Petty knife in my collection. And also steel AUS 10 and Blue Pakka Wood Handle. I couldn't pass by :) A good, quite sharp out of the box, a small universal knife, which in the absence of Nakiri (I already received my next delivery from Koki) can be cut and vegetables. Also with the next delivery I got his older brother Bunka (Kiritsuke). I recommend to buy a set at once: JCK Natures 青雲 Blue Clouds Series Kiritsuke Petty & Bunka (Kiritsuke) (2Pcs Knife Set). Now it is a good price. The first delivery was 5 days, and the second only 3 days !!! Thank you Koki for the good knives and great service!
A beautiful knife. A pleasure to use
Great knife, price vs quality. I’ve been using it a lot, it’s light and easy to sharpe
This particular purchase wasn’t for me but instead for my parter who was ready to graduate from a victorinox petty. Absolutely gorgeous with great f&f. I purchased the saya as well and it fits perfectly, possibly one of the best fitting saya’s I’ve ever used. A bit thick behind the blade edge but thins easily.
