JCK Natures

JCK Natures Sakura Series HS-2 Wa Santoku 170mm (6.6 inch)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

In Japanese, “Sakura” means " Spring Cherry Blossoms”. Just like the beautiful cherry blossoms of springtime, the JCK Natures Sakura 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 “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 "Haru-Sakura" knife can be purchased separately. Wooden Saya of Santoku.

 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. Compared to a Western-style handle, the lightweight traditional Japanese handle of the Wa Santoku knife moves the balance point of the knife further towards the tip, which makes it feel more nimble and precise.

  • We recommend re-sharpening the knife using Japanese whetstones, when it gets dull.

    Beautiful well made knife

    JCK Natures Haru-Sakura Series HS-2 Wa Santoku 170mm. I purchased the JCK because it is amazing quality, light weight and so easy and a pleasure to use. It is real work of art. Magnolia Wooden Saya for Santoku I also ordered the knife sheath which is made of wood.To protect the knife, again beautiful work and attention to detail. The shipping from this company is awesome. I placed an order for the knife and was astonished that they shipped within a few hours of me placing the order.
