In Japanese, “Sakura” means " Spring Cherry Blossoms”. Just like the beautiful cherry blossoms of springtime, the JCK Natures Sakura Series knives have a vivid, impactful Damascus pattern that beautifully matches the natural grain pattern of their fine Cherry Wood Handles.
The attractive layered Damascus blades of the “Sakura” knives have a slightly upswept blade shape that handles well and cuts efficiently. The knives feature a VG-10 Stainless Damascus steel blade (HRc. 60-61) with a 50/50 symmetrical grind and each knife is hand sharpened and hand honed, ready for use.
Each “JCK Natures Sakura” knife is fitted with a comfortable oval-shaped Cherry Wood Handle that is fitted with a black pakka wood ferrule.
A protective wooden Saya (Sheath) that is suitable for your "Sakura" knife can be purchased separately. Wooden Saya of Wa Petty.
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.

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.
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’ve ordered this knife because I was looking for something small for fine kitchen work. Package’s arrived in 5 days, great fast service from JCK as usual:-) First impression from the knife still in the box - its cute and beautiful . But biggest surprise comes when you hold it in a hand - its incredibly light! Comes extremely sharp out of the box, and with it’s weight you feel like working with pointy razor I expect that VG10 will hold the edge quite long time and it wont be any problem to resharpen. I’m very satisfied with this purchase and giving 5 stars to this petty and JCK as well
The knife arrived incredibly fast! Beautiful and lightweight, VG-10 Damascus blade. Sharp and easy to use. Exactly the what I was looking for. If you in the market for a small petty knife without having to break the bank, this is it.
