For the second series of JCK Original “KAGAYAKI” knives, we have closely worked with the master craftsman Mr. Gotou again.
The new KAGAYAKI VG-10 knives have a graceful balance. They feature an attractive semi-mirror-polished solid VG-10 blade (HRc. 60- 61).
VG-10 is high performance stainless cutlery steel that is famous for its combination of very good edge sharpness, edge retention, and high corrosion resistance.
Kagayaki VG-10 Kiritsuke Gyuto comes with comfortable grip of Octagonal Magnolia Wood Handle with Water Buffalo Horn Ferrules. For safekeeping, this knife comes with a matching magnolia wood Saya (Sheath) and a black pakkawood Saya pin.
Expert Craftsmanship and true Passion are necessary to create a beautifully polished, three-dimensional Kiritsuke blade, with a perfectly polished blade tip and spine.
Maintaining the same of high quality finishing and manufacturing standards established by our existing Kagayaki VG-10 line, creating a nice visual accent and providing extra comfort when holding the knife in a pinch grip.
The stylish and versatile Kiritsuke-Gyuto is becoming more common and popular in recent years. The triangular tip area is particularly useful for detailed work and cutting fish or meat. It is a very versatile knife that can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto.
