Our innovative KAGAYAKI CarboNext product range uses next generation carbon tool steel that we call “CarboNext”. Our CarboNext blades allow you to enjoy all the usual advantages of traditional high carbon steels (i.e. Excellent edge sharpness, excellent edge retention and ease of sharpening), but they offer the additional benefit of improved rust resistance.
The blade is made of solid CarboNext special high carbon tool steel that is hardened to HRc. 59-61. The knife features superb fit and finish, full tang construction, and comfortable black pakkawood handles. Its thin blade has a slow gradual taper and is finely ground, which results in excellent cutting performance and blade balance.
Because this knife offers greater rust resistance and ease of maintenance than regular high carbon steel knives, we particularly recommend CarboNext Knife to first-time users of carbon steel knives. Professionals and serious amateurs will love their superb blade geometry, cutting performance and quality construction.
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.

Master Craftsman modifies edge shape and bevel for left hand use by hand sharpening process at the following additional cost:
Left handed versions are normally in stock for immediate shipping. However, when it became out of stock, please allow 3 to 6 days for shipping.
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.
Information About The Care & Maintenance of CarboNext Knives
While our CarboNext knives have better rust resistance than other plain carbon steel knives, they will discolor and rust if not cared for properly. To keep your knife in good condition, please do not leave it in wet or salty conditions for a long time. After hand washing the knife, we recommend that you carefully rinse the knife with plain warm water and dry it with a clean cloth. It is important to make sure that there is no water left between the blade tang and the handle, or bolster, because this can lead to corrosion.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Carbon steel blade kitchen knife that can get rust and discolor easily, and requires extra care and attention to prevent rust.
I recently replaced all my kitchen knives with knives from JCK. I bought the Petty, Santoku and Gyuto. All 3 of them came extremely sharp out of the box no doubt. The usability is great. Fits well in your palm with some decent weight and they perform exceptionally well. The packages also came with care instructions and the speed of delivery from Japan to USA was quick and on time. Thanks for a great customer service!
My wife is a food blogger and was in need of some new knives. The ones she had were decent, but were consistently dull and difficult to use. She was a little hesitant to spend the money on a more expensive set of knives (125mm and 150mm), but the second she tried them out she declared she’d never go back. These knives have a great weight to them, are comfortable to hold, and do an excellent job cutting, slicing, etc. Both my wife and I are extremely pleased with the knives and will continue to order from this company when we need additional knives.
Thie knife is just amazing, I use it everyday to cut vegetables, fruit,…My favorite!
Great knife, when you need something larger than a parer yet smaller than a chef knife.. Shipping was super fast. Amazingly sharp out of the box.
