JCK Natures ”Gekko Kagami” Santoku 180mm (7 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


From my first glance of this beautiful knife, I knew it should be called "Gekko”, or 月光, which means "Moonlight" in Japanese. From every angle, the Gekko knife reminded me of the way that the shape and light of the Moon changes each night.

Beautifully mirror polished VG-10 stainless steel blade core that is clad on both sides by a 33 layer Damascus stainless steel (HRc. 60-61. 50/50 symmetrically ground double beveled edge). 

We specially requested the Craftsmen to make extra attention and care for making precise and detailed edge by hand-sharpening process.

Unique “Mahogany Wood Handle” matches well with beautiful mirror polished Tsuchime Damascus blade.

You can select the knife (with the Wooden Saya) or (Without Wooden Saya) at your preference. The matching wooden Saya (Sheath) with a decorative Brown lacquer finish, which nicely complements the Gekko Kagamis Brown pakkawood handle and also the aesthetics of the Damascus blade.

The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen knife.

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.

  • After using, please hand wash it and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes. (Includes bolster and handle part)
  • 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, hard foods such as lobster and crab which have hard surface.
  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.
