The Polished, Vivid Blue Pakka Wood Handle Scales beautifully match the mirror polished VG-10 Tsuchime Damascus blade and the knives have an excellent overall level of fit & finish and quality. The handle material is strong, resists water and resists 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 / pins.
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 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.

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.

I have bought the JCK Natures Blue Clouds Series BCD-3 VG-10 Tsuchime Damascus Gyuto 210mm as a gift and the receiver was absolutely thrilled by it and they are a professional chef, so I think that this says a lot about the product. In terms of the customer service, I am very happy, I have received all the help and support I needed for this purchase. Delivery was fast and smooth, so 5 starts there too. Thank you! I will definitely buy again!
I was very happy when I received the Gyuto knife. It was my first official very sharp chef's knife. I use it all the time and am very happy with it.
I received my JCK Natures Blue Cloud BCD-3. Found a burr between the tang and the scale. Contacted JCK and Mr. Iwahara offered to exchange that knife for another. Long story short - Mr. Iwahara resolved my concerns quickly and to my satisfaction. His offers were always contingent on my approval. I am a very satisfied customer and have every expectation of being a long-term JCK customer.
I purchased this knife as a Christmas gift. It hasn't been used yet but I hope the person if getting it, will love it! The knife is very beautiful and very well made. I had an issue with the first parcel - the handle of the knife was slightly damaged on one side. I contacted Koki and had an amazing customer service experience! I sent back the damaged knife and received a flawless replacement very fast! I was even offered a gift wrap since I mentioned to Koki that it was a gift. I would highly recommend JapaneseChefsKnife.com for high quality products and amazing customer service! Thank you again for your help, Koki!
I didn’t really need another Japanese Gyuto but couldn’t resist the beautiful colour of the handle. Bought it along with the blue saya. Item was delivered very promptly despite it being shipped from Japan to Singapore. Haven’t used it yet but expect it to be razor sharp, like my other Japanese knives from JCK. Craftsmanship is great. The weight of the knife is 188gm without the saya and 239gm with the accompanying saya.
