This was my first time buying a Japanese knife, and I spent an inordinate amount of time researching them. I am glad I went with JCK. As everyone notes, this store and its service are impeccable. DHL Express delivery from Seki, Japan to Los Angeles in less than 48 hours is close to instant gratification. I ordered the sakura/cherry handle, but received red sandalwood handle instead. JCK emailed back quickly when I asked, and apologized for the substitution, which is perfectly fine (and actually an upgrade). The damascus steel is gorgeous, and I've had not problems with usual maintenance. It is so much sharper than my previous paring knife, that I have to relearn my paring skills to avoid cutting my thumb ( I guess I got used to using it as a cutting board with a dull knife). I now prefer the Japanese handles to German ones, and bought three more knives from JCK!
This paring knife is comfortable, agile and sharp. The “sheep’s foot” style with little rocker is idea for paring. The point is more than adequate for piercing. This is the handiest paring knife I have used.
My husband and I both love using this knife. It is a beautifully made knife, very sharp, and comfortable in the hand.
This was a gift. She loved it. Precision and Sharp makes the tasks speedy. Beautiful and comfortable handle.
Bought the knife as a gift for my mother. She loves cooking Asian cuisine and this knife fits her need perfectly. Its a great size and it looks beautiful. The shape of the blade is pretty wide at the bottom so finding an open spot in her western knife block was a challenge but she found a home for it with a little moving around.
