JCK Natures Gekko Kiwami Series GEK-2 Santoku 180mm (7 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


This high-grade version of the popular Gekko Damascus knife is truly worthy of the name “Gekko Kiwami” (Premium).

 After listening to the craftsman’s explanation about how these new Damascus knives are made, we recognized that their quality exceeds that of the original Gekko knife, due to the extra care and attention taken during their making process.

 Gekko Kiwami knife undergoes a special heat treatment process that uses a bath of molten salt, this allows very accurate temperature control and is a reliable way to create blades with a specific Rockwell hardness. It is often used for the production of small batches of blades, especially high quality knives and expensive custom knives.

 Gekko Kiwami knife has a natural-looking style, and that the polished layers of the beautiful unique & beautiful Tsuchime (“Hammered pattern”) textured Damascus blade. They feature a hand sharpened and hand honed VG-10 Nickel Damascus stainless steel blade (HRc. 60-61.).

 The handle is made of black pakkawood and the knife has a stainless steel bolster, which provides improved durability and good blade balance. The handle and bolster have a nice rounded shape that allows the knife to be held comfortably and securely.

 You can select the knife (with the Wooden Saya) or (Without Wooden Saya) at your preference. The matching wooden Saya (Sheath) with a decorative black lacquer finish, which nicely complements the Gekko Kiwami's black 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 has double bevel edge 70/30 which is suitable for right hand use.

For your information, many of the Japanese Kitchen knives come originally with double bevel edge sharpened 70/30 (face side/back side) for Western style knives. This geometry came from Japanese Traditional knives with single bevel edge and Shinogi blade construction. This is one of the special features and reasons why Japanese knives have an excellent cutting performance.

However, this 70/30 edge geometry is designed for right hand use, so we have a service to modify it to 30/70 for left handed users with re-sharpening process by skilled craftsman.

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 knives can be your special cooking partner for long time.

Superb. 5 star.

Everything was perfect with this order. It was on time. It was shipped safely. The santoku knife I ordered was not only beautiful but functionally excellent. I love using this knife. It feels great in my hands and it cuts through foods like going through butter. I've been using in for about 6 weeks now and I haven't even had to consider touching up its sharpness. I would highly recommend Japanese Chefs Knife and their products.
