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.

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.
I bought it for my husband for Christmas and he loves it.
The wavy Damascus pattern and the beautiful blue handle + saya are absolutely gorgeous. And to top it off, this Gyoto handles and cuts like a dream! Iv'e been using it for prepping dinners semi-frequently, it is still the sharpest knife I own, and definitely the prettiest!
This was a gift for a home cook and it’s perfect for that. Easy to maintain yet still is fully capable of being used at a pro-level.
Bought it for a friend. Very nice knife, for first use of japanese quality. Especially for the given price. Thank you Koki..
Bought as a gift and was very impressed. The shipping was fast and the items I ordered were pristine! The detail on the knife is gorgeous. I did make a mistake with my original order but I received help right away with no delay in my order. Would highly recommend.
