Sukenari


Sukenari R-2 Clad Wa Series Kiritsuke (210 to 270mm, 3 sizes, Octagon Shaped Bocote Wood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships within 1 to 6 days


Sukenari has a lot of experience and considerable skill in hammer forging the high performance modern steels. Sukenari leveraged this expertise to make this R-2 steel knife and extra high-cutting performance and edge retention. 

R-2 cutting edge core is sandwiched with soft stainless steel. R-2 is made by a highly reputable Japanese company Steel company called Kobelco, and the steel offers remarkable cutting performance and edge retention.

  Both we and Master Hanaki (President of Sukenari) believes R-2 is one of most practical steel available in this generation. This knife is the simple appearance, yet we can feel the high level of craftsmanship and spirits from the specially forged fine Japanese Traditional Style knife.

This knife has a unique natural wooden texture of octagonal Bocote wood handle, which has a buffalo horn ferrule.(Sukenari carefully selects the Japan's Premium Wa Handle craftsman for handcrafting this premium wood Wa Handle). For safekeeping, this knife comes with a matching Handcrafted Magnolia Wood Saya (Sheath) with a black pakkawood Saya pin.

The lightweight, double bevel edged Kiritsuke might be compared to a combination of the Nakiri and the Sujihiki. It is a very versatile knife that can be used to perform many of the tasks normally done with a Gyuto.

Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan R-2 Clad Wa Series Wa Gyuto (210 to 240mm 2 sizes,Octagon Shaped Ebonywood Handle with White Spacer)

 

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.

Important

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.

    I recommend this product

    Doubt this will be my last order from JCK

    The photos don't do the Bocote handle justice. Personally really dig the understated Sukenari design of this knife. Also the handle install is central and the saya provided is a good fit. In hand it handles like a oversized Bunka without being blade heavy. It's not a laser grind but the R2 edge cuts like one, feels kinda substantial in hand but balances perfectly on the pinch. After ordering I realised I made a mistake with the address I provided. Emailed Ken and received a prompt reply correcting my mistake and the knife arrived in the UK three days later (without additional import fees).
