JCK Original Kagayaki R-2 Damascus Series KGRP-1 Petty 150mm (5.9 inch, Polished Blade)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

For the core steel of this Damascus knife, Master Craftsman Mr. Gotou selected a special Powdered Metallurgy High Speed Tool Steel called “R-2”, which he heat-treats to HRc. 63. R-2 is made by a highly reputable Japanese company called Kobelco, and the steel offers remarkable cutting performance and edge retention. The two outer layers of the blade are made from a unique and elegantly patterned Damascus steel, which is comprised of alternating layers of white-colored nickel steel and sparkling mirror polished layers of steel.

This KAGAYAKI R-2 Damascus Series knife features a classic design, a comfortable black pakkawood handle, and a stainless steel bolster for better balance and improved durability. The knife also comes with a matching wooden Saya (Sheath) with a decorative black lacquer finish, which complements the appearance of the Micarta handle and Damascus blade very well.

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 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 Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Damascus R2 at a good price point

    These are the more affordable variant of one my favourites, the forged Kagayaki R-2 Damascus Series KGR-1 Petty. They both have that R2 core with its amazing edge retention. This is not a knife for a beginner: if you make a mistake and chip the cutting edge, its going to take a lot of work to get out. But if you’re lived with a Japanese kitchen knife for a year or more, the edge retention of this knife will delight: Damascus R2 at a great price point, well-made and pleasing to the eye.

    Great petty knife

    This is a great petty knife with a very fine damascus pattern. Recommenced by Koki-san. Very pleased with the sharpness straight out of its packaging - no problem with thinly slicing an overripe tomato. Attracts many admiring glances whenever I use in front of others !

    JCK Original Kagayaki R-2 Damascus Series KGRP-1 Petty 150mm (5.9 inch, Polished Blade)

    Спасибо Koki Iwahara. Заказ прибыл в короткий срок. Качество ножа очень хорошее. Ранее у меня не было японских ножей. Это фантастика. Режет очень хорошо. Недостаток, что существует зазор между обкладками ручки ножа и металлом ручки ножа. Но это не существенно. Этот зацеп предотвращает проскальзывание ножа в руке.Со временем он отшлифуется руками, если не будет мозоли. Главное это лезвие. Пока мало времени судить. Будет видно через год-полгода.
