JCK Natures 青雲 Blue Clouds Series Blue Steel No.2 Nashiji Kiritsuke Petty & Bunka (Kiritsuke) (BCB-2Pcs Knife Set)

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 end of the year 2019, we released the first models in the "Blue Clouds" series: a TsuchimeHammered Kiritsuke Petty and Kiritsuke in AUS-10. Since then, our Blue Clouds knives have become one of our Bestsellers because of the their overall quality, excellent fit & finish, moderate price and stylish, practical design.

 We have received many of positive comments about our Blue Clouds knives, including a special request to make a Carbon steel version of the Kiritsuke knives. Now, in the Spring of 2021, we are proud to introduce and finally release our newest Blue Clouds knives, which have Nashiji ("Pear skin") textured, Blue Steel No.2 blades and a beautiful, wavy forge weld line.

 The new "Blue Clouds Series" Blue Steel No.2 knives have a smooth Matt Blade Finish and Forged Nashiji texture — an innovative approach that produces very consistent and reliable results, especially when combined with the skilled hand work and finishing work performed by our smiths and craftsmen. The Mirror Polished, Blue No.2 Carbon Steel blade core is clad with low maintenance Stainless Steel and has a stylish, practical Kiritsuke blade shape (Similar to a multi-purpose Santoku or Bunka knife) that is well suited to a wide variety of cutting tasks. Heat treated to HRc. 61 to 62, the double bevel edged blade has a 50/50 symmetrical grind.

 The Polished, Vivid Blue Pakka Wood Handle Scales beautifully match the Nashij textured, Blue Steel No.2 Kiritsuke blade. These knives also feature a full-tang construction, a forged stainless steel bolster and stainless steel handle rivets.

 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.

 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. However, they are equally suitable for professionals and serious home cooks.

This is the versatile and special knife set (including the Kiritsuke Petty and Kiritsuke), which we can highly recommend them as special gift for your special person and for serious home chefs.

 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.

 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 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.

 

Important

This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. Please apply Tsubaki oil on the blade 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.

      Beuatiful knives with some space for improvement

      FIrst time a client of JCK site, but I think it's not the last time for sure. I've got my order very quickly. Really impressive service and really fast delivery from Japan to France. These pair is a genuine beauty! From the handle to the tip. I would never imagined I'd love Nashiji finish so much. The knives' balance is perfect for my taste. The Bunka is very comfortable in my hand. However the spine of the petty knife seems a bit too rough at its angles when I use a pinch grip, could be rounded more. Both of them were not very sharp out of the box (just as stated in one of the previous reviews). They were not completely dull, but they were quite far from what you'd expect from Japanese knives. And Bunka has a little imperfection at the very tip. Just a kind of a small oval shaped dent. Hence my 4 stars evaluation instead of 5. These knives are close to be great, but there is still some space for improvement.

      A wonderful introduction to Japanese knives!

      The blade is beautiful, the balance delightful. The blade is thinner but stiffer than common western blades in my experience (Zwilling, Wusthof, Icel, Global etc). I love the Kiritsuke profile (I’m a slicer/chopper), though my wife prefers the sharper curve of the chefs knife (she’s a rocker). The blue handle is beautifully done but somewhat polarising. -1 star because the edge arrived usable but blunt (by the Carter three finger test of sharpness). That said, the edge hasn’t a single defect after six weeks - a stark contrast to my stainless knives. The Sayas are awesome and JCK were helpful in supplying them.

      I love these blue cloud series knives, especially the Nashiji Kiritsuke petty & Bunka set

      I was looking for a Bunka and came across this Blue Cloud Nashiji knives set. They arrived so fast which made me so happy. I haven't bought anything from JCK that I disappoint me yet. These Knives met all my expectations. I love the blue handles, the nashiji finished on the knives, and also the Sayas that purchased together with the set. I also love the small kiritsuke petty knife, too. It is small but stout, well built, blade is thicker and not flexible (bendable), which is why I like it so much. Photos uploaded for your references of the actual knives and how they look like when put with other knives.
