  1. Yasuo 33 Layers Santoku 165mm

    Made to a JKC custom design. We have contracted the best commercial maker in Seki to produce this range of 33 Layer hammer beaten Damascus blades to suit the needs of the typical Western kitchen which often has users that utilise a more European method to cut – using force rather than edge length. The cold forged blade is tough, hard and easy to look after . At this price point this si the best knife we sell. The sharpening, with the ultra-thin core is very easy and remains so over the many years this knife is designed to be used in a busy kitchen.

  2. Gold Kitano Set of 3 Nakiri 160mm (for chopping vegetable)
    Sale

    Gold Kitano Set of 3

    Made in a small workshop in the outskirts of Osaka in an area close to Sakai these 3 layer knives have a central core of VG10 No1. A compact range it represents the 4 most popular shapes. These knives are fully roll forged from a thicker blank than our Warikomi Collection (which uses the same steel). Therefore greater pressure was required to achieve a similar eventual thickness. This extra pressure has resulted in a slightly denser blade with a more aligned molecular structure which will stay sharper longer and is equally easy to resharpen. The hardness after final quenching is an outstanding 60:62 HRC. This is a good alternative to our Tamahagane Collection if a Multi-layered Damascus blade is not a priority. The handle is crafted from pakkawood to further enhance the quality and ensure longevity. Knives come in individual boxes. Set Includes: 1 x Utility knife 135mm for utility work. 1 x Nakiri knife 165mm for vegetables. 1 x Gyuto knife 180mm for meat

  3. Misono Handmade Santoku (3 Sizes)

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. The breadth of blade is ideally suited for cutting against the knuckle with speed – this technique provides safe comfortable cutting action only when the fingertips are clawed well away from the edge with the blade resting on the knuckle. The relatively straight profile and extra width, apart from multi function use on raw flesh, makes this a great choice as the primary blade for those who prepare mostly vegetables. This perfectly balanced knife will float through any task. Particularly well suited to a more horizontal or slicing action to cut as opposed the more classic French techique of roll cutting on a board. This slim, lighter (than its Santoku brother) blade makes a wonderfully impressive SMALL carving knife. Ideal for creating awe inspiringly wafer thin slices from your Sunday joint or equally elegant cuts from fish and cold meats. Like any Artisan knife it also capable of tackling the hardest vegetables like celeriac and swede with consummate ease. If you keep your edge lovely and silky there is no reason why this relatively narrow blade should not meet many domestic fish challenges like slicing, light filleting etc with ease.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.

This time, we developed Suzaku as a concept. Limited production of only 50 sets worldwide, will be stamped a serial number on all. We plan to announce a white tiger next year. Of course, practical construction is also taken into consideration, but it is a limited series that will be brought together and developed to bring out a unique presence unique to others. The blade is rainbow Damascus and the core metal is blue steel. The pattern of this blade is an image of Suzaku (peacock) feathers. The handle is the newest type of acrylic designed like Suzaku.

  13. Tamahagane Santoku (2 sizes)

    Santoku literally translates as ‘three benefits’ – slicing, dicing and mincing. This shape is now becoming a byword for anyone looking for a Japanese style chefs knife. One small issue that has always concerned us at JKC is that with its relatively straight edge profile, the Santoku has never been as efficient when used in a very classic western rolling cut action as the more curved western style edge profiles like the Kengata.

    Inspired by the unparallel functionality of a Samurai sword, which is slightly curved, we asked the Arai blacksmiths to apply a gentle curve to the spine of the knife so the whole blade, whilst retaining a traditional straighter edge of the classic Santoku allows for an easier rolling action more in keeping with the way most of western hands use a chefs knife. Another small but revolutionary change from a classic Santoku is the slightly more pointed tip end – to make this Santoku more efficient then others when working with raw or cooked flesh. These minor, and unique changes in the overall profile of the blade has resulted in what we have found to be the most awesomely efficient chefs knife available in this price category. The breadth of this minutely curved blade is ideally suited for resting against the knuckle for total control and speed as well as complete safety when chopping straight down using the very back of the knife for grater like mincing of garlic, ginger etc. This perfectly shaped knife will float through any task. This longer model is ideal for those more comfortable with a larger knife.

    Stunningly beautiful, scalpel sharp and easy to resharpen, these knives are stainless and very easy to maintain.

    The 35 layers not only make these blades aesthetically appealing but add immense strength thus facilitating a thinner, yet stronger, and therefore sharper blade. The central core of the 35 layer JKC Tamahagane Damascus steel is a High Carbon Super Steel known as VG10. This High Carbon Super Steel has the highest recommendations in the production of knives by authorities such as the British Steel Confederation and the Solingen Institute of Steel. The JKC 35 Layer Tamahagane Collection blades have all been hardened to an outstanding 60:62 HRC and with the inclusion of Cobalt in the alloy are easier to maintain than most Stainless High Carbon or other VG10 blades.

    The ergonomic traditional handles are composed of Ebony black Pakkawood, a laminated hard wood with silicon injection, which is reserved for only the finest knives and secured to the tang by three steel rivets for ultimate durability.

    SPECIAL NOTES: Hand wash only. Not to be used on bone or for ANY kind of twisting or prising. CUT ONLY on wood or HDP. Do not allow Knives to be abused as screwdrivers, tin openers etc. Designed specifically for food preparation, FOR CULINARY USE ONLY.
