JCK Natures 青雲 Blue Clouds Series BC-2 Bunka (Kiritsuke) 190mm (7.4 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


 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 (Bunka), 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 knife features 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.

 The Bunka is a general-purpose kitchen knife that used to be just as popular as the Santoku, but has become less commonplace in recent years. With its tall blade, the Bunka knife is particularly suitable for cutting vegetables or fruit and the triangular tip area is particularly useful for detailed work and cutting fish or meat.

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.

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

Absolute workhorse

Ordered this because I do quite a bit of knife prep for my job and was tired of feeling like I’m beating up my expensive knives. I wanted to try the kiritsuke shape for its versatility, plus I tend to like knives with flatter bellies. So far I’m extremely pleased with this knife. Obviously, the quality of materials and craftsmanship cannot compare to a more expensive knife. If you’re a professional cook/chef, this is unlikely to be the nicest knife you’ll ever own. BUT, what you get for less than $125 is an absolute beast that can handle nearly any task in the kitchen without chipping or dulling after one day of heavy use. It is such a relief to have a sharp knife that I don’t have to treat like a newborn baby all the time. Customer service is top-notch with JCK, I accidentally added 2 of these to my cart before I placed the order and they corrected my mistake immediately. Truly, I’m extremely pleased with this purchase. If you need a durable, sharp, dynamic knife that also looks beautiful, it would be hard to do better than this one.
