      Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan ZDP-189 Wa Series

                                       by JCK

  Since we started our business, we have often received inquiries and requests from our customers for special steel knives such as ZDP-189, Cowry X.

  Hitachi ZDP-189 Powdered High Speed Tool steel (Carbon 3%, Chromium 20%)  is attractive, and very special, but still mysterious and rare on the market.

  When we saw the ZDP-189 steel knives for the first time, our first impression was they could rival or equal in excellence the Cowry X steel which Master Hattori uses for the KD Series Cowry X Damascus knives.

  We now have the chance to work with Sukenari forge-smiths to produce these ZDP-189 Forged Wa Gyuto knives and we are very glad to be able to introduce them to you.

  Sukenari is great forge-smiths who proactively take on new steels. We understand and respect their knife making policy as they are making every effort to satisfy professional usersf needs and demands.

  These ZDP-189 kitchen knives were made through a difficult and time-taking forging process and hand sharpening process. They are the result of many years of ZDP-189 knife production technology and of the rich experience Sukenari has devoted.

  Even if you are already satisfied with Japanese kitchen knives, you will still feel the colossal difference in sharpness that these knives bring. (HRC66 to 67)

  We bring you now the Wa Gyuto in three sizes: 210o, 240o,  of 270o. In the near future we also plan to offer the Petty, Santoku, Sujihiki and Kiritsuke.


  Each knife comes with matching Magnolia Wooden Saya and Octagon Shape Magnolia Wooden Handle.

                               Edge Shape          Information For Left Hander       

                    

                    Double Bevel Edge 50/50               

 

  All models are suitable for both Right Hander and Left Hander's use

Ռ@Deep Impact
                                       by JCK


  If I needed to choose a knife to use in daily food preparation, I personally think cutting performance and edge retention would come at the top of my priority list. Moreover, if the knife didnft require much additional care and attention in terms of daily maintenance, it would make my decision that much easier.

  These new products named gSyogekih which means gDeep Impacth would be among my choices as they match well my preferences above.
 

  The blade is made of Japanfs highest ranked Carbon Steel gAogami Super (Blue Super Steel)h sandwiched with soft stainless steel. HRC64 to 65.

  The 3-layered steel blade (Clad) structure supports its core of very hard steel, and offers good strength, durability and easy anti-rust maintenance as well.

  The handle is made of Black Paper Micarta, which creates extra durability and lack of shrinkage in water.

  I believe we would all like to use our own knife for as long as possible. However if you are not satisfied with the knifefs cutting performance and edge retention, you may consider stopping using that particular knife. I believe the Syogeki Aogami Super knives will have a deep impact on and dramatically change your cooking style and cooking time with their superb cutting performance.

  A total of 5 types of new Aogami Super knives are now available and ready to be your long time cooking partners.

SHIKI High End Custom Damascus Series

      Mr. Masui , he is now 67 years old of experienced, innovative knife craftsman.

      He has over 45 years of knife making experience. However he is still very active and aggressively challenging to create something new and something different in designs and ideas.

      He is one of the rare craftsmen who can design own knife with own idea, and realize it all by himself.

      This time, Mr. Masui has decided to make High End Custom Line for SHIKI brand knives, which means he needs to devote all his energies, skills and times for producing these new Custom High End SHIKI Damascus Knives.

      For distinguishing from other SHIKI selections, Mr. Masui has paid more attention to select the best materials, and spent much more times for every making process and detailed hand working process.

      For the handle, Mr. Masui researched and managed to import and use much rare and unique wood material called gCalifornia Buck Eyeh from U.S.A.

      This wood makes beautiful natural texture with mixture of grayish and calm tan coloring. Each wood has a different and unique texture and coloring, giving you a feeling to own the special "one-of-a-kind" knife.

      The Stabilized California Buck Eye wood handle is nicely hand contoured for perfect balance and comfortable grip.  Gorgeous 3 Mosaic Pins are the elegant accent for the unique wood handle.


      Unique grey/silver coloring and mat finish of VG-10 Nickel Damascus Blade is also matching well with the California Buck Eye Handle. Mr. Masui has struggled and finally achieved this unique mat finishes Damascus blade. He has tried several acid etching times and processes to test and find the best appearance of the Damascus layered textures on the decent unevenness blade surface. He has then added lightly blasted finish and shinny nickel layers. I'm sure you will love this outstanding Damascus blade finish 

      Mr. Masui did not forget to pay his special attention to the bolster too, and added extra process to make it matching matt finish and calm silver color for total beauty.

      For every part and details, Mr. Masui did not make any compromise and we are proud to introduce these SHIKI High End Custom Damascus Series knives for those who seek a pleasure of owning and using in addition to the functions.

      Each blade has hand chisel engraving logo in Kanji meaning gSHIKI  Hiroaki madeh.

      Each item is being available now in limited quantity.  This is the Top of the SHKI line of Custom High End Damascus knives.

  As you may already know, there are several places in Japan known for fine knife making.

  One is our location, Seki City, the most famous knife-making city in Japan. Seki City has been producing a variety of cutlery including Japanese swords, kitchen knives, pocket knives, hunting knives and many others throughout its history. Among kitchen knives, Seki City is especially renowned for making professional quality Western Style knives such as Petty, Santoku, Gyuto and Sujihiki combining modern technology and craftsmenfs exquisite hand making skills and techniques. To give one example, the Hattori FH Series, JCK Original KAGAYAKI and Misono items are all from Seki City, and are among our highly recommended top quality Western Style Knives.


  Sakai City, Osaka is another famous place for making Japanese Traditional style knives such as Yanagiba, Usuba and Deba (single bevel edge knives). Each of these traditional knives is crafted through a hammer forging process and requires much of the craftsmenfs time and skill to make. We are especially impressed with their outstanding skill during the sharpening process (using a Water Wheel Whetstone). Japanese traditional style knives made in Sakai City are
the tool of choice of professional Sushi chefs who demand extra high cutting performance in preparing fresh Sashimi and Sushi.

  Our recommended products from Sakai City, Osaka are the Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan Hon Kasumi Series. Mizuno Tanrenjo

  Takefu City in Fukui Prefecture also has a long tradition of knife making and Takefu is famous for traditional hammer-forged knives called gEchizen Uchihamonoh.


  Takefu City is getting a lot of attention today for its knife making. The Takefu Knife Association is making a lot of effort to have been many passionate young forge-smiths coming to Takefu to master the craft of traditional forged knives.  

  These are our recommended knives from Takefu City: the Kagayaki Aogami Super Custom Damascus Wa Series, Mr. Itou  R-2 Custom Damascus Series, Takeshi Saji Unique Custom Knife Collections by Takeshi Saji who is popular forge-smith from Takefu city.

  Finally, Sanjo City in Niigata is also famous for its traditional hammer forging and knife making. The techniques and skills seen in the forging process are most highly recognized and the very talented special forge-smiths in Sanjo City have produced fine masterpieces of unattainable level. One example is the Tsukasa Hinoura Custom Knife Collection.

  Today we present these new traditional hammer forged knives from Sanjo City.

  The brand name of these new knives is Blue Moon (Œ= SEIGETSU).


  Repeated traditional hammer forging and fine hand sharpening combine to achieve the unique Japanese taste of the Tsuchime Black forged (Kurouchi) Blade. Blue Steel #2 core is sandwiched with soft stainless steel for easy maintenance.

 The unique Tsuchime dimples and dark color blade surface look like the Moon and its Craters. Each knife has a unique texture of Craters.


  To reflect the beauty of this Blue Steel #2 Japanese Carbon steel blade with unique Tsuchime Moon-like Texture, we named these these Japanese Traditional Forged knives gBlue Moonh.

 

  Oval shape of the Magnolia Wooden Handle with Brown Pakka wood ferrule (Suitable for both Right and Left Handed users)

  SAZANAMI Damascus Series

     Simple and Moderate are the words that best describe these new Damascus Kitchen knives, gSazanami h. Sazanami means gsmall and calm wavesh. Sazanami Damascus Series have a simple and moderate Damascus layerered pattern, just as their name suggests.   Today, we see many kinds of Damascus blade kitchen knives. Some of them have more aggressive Damascus layers and some of them just have more Damascus layers, which gives them an appealing exterior appearance.

  However, we believe that these simple and moderate Sazanami Damascus knives are both of good taste and comfortable to own and use.

  Moreover, you will be impressed with the cutting performance.   Selected high quality VG-10 Damascus Stainless steel blades are finely sharpened to create a thin blade profile and edge which leads to precise and detailed cutting performance.  According to one experienced userfs opinion after testing, Sazanami Damascus Kitchen knives have much better edge retention than his other stainless steel knives and are among his most favorite knives and cooking partners.

  Although appearance may be important, sharpness and cutting performance and good handling are a much more important part of your daily cooking and cutting tasks.  Our craftsmen-team is highly confident about these Damascus knives. We are not competing to make aggressive, big impact design Damascus kitchen knives. We believe you can feel more impact with their cutting performance, and we recommend Sazanami Damascus kitchen knives as your long time cooking partners.

  Full tang Black Pakka Wood Handle with Stainless steel bolster.

     P@ KAGAYAKI Gekido
                              KAGAYAKI R-2 Damascus Series

It has been over 6 years since we have started to work with Master Gotohfs fine craftsmen team to found and establish the Kagayaki brand. Kagayaki Basic Series, KAGAYAKI VG-10 Series, and KAGAYAKI CarboNext Series, all these fine Western style knives are now among our popular and favorite knives, due to the high quality standards. Master Gotohfs fine craftsmanship and dedication to maintaining a high level are obvious.

For the next generation, new market needs, and for satisfying a wide variety of experienced usersf needs, Master Gotoh has been polishing his skills further to create the new Damascus kitchen knives. When I heard for the first time that Master Gotoh is going to craft Damascus kitchen knives, I was very excited and couldnft stop trying to imagine what these Damascus knives would be.

 The result was beautiful Damascus knives with excellent fit & finish, created by reliable quality work and attention to every detail, during every step of the making process. As I imagined, they are attractive and have the outstanding quality of professional Damascus knives.

 He has selected the R-2 Special Powdered High Speed Tool Steel for the Damascus core steel. R-2 is reputable special Powdered High Speed tool steel that offers remarkable cutting performance, edge retention and good rust resistance. (HRC 63) 

The additional Nickel layers emphasize the white layer pattern and the craftsmenfs special mirror polishing results in a unique and elegant Damascus blade.

Additionally, Master Gotoh had a great idea for distinguishing these knives from other existing Damascus kitchen knives. Created in collaboration with a Master forge-smith, the blades are made through the traditional hammer forging process for maximizing steelfs strengths. The rest is Master Gotohfs reliable and experienced crafting and finishing work.


Now the beautiful and high quality KAGAYAKI Gekido R-2 Nickel Damascus Series knives are available.


The nicely contoured, fine round shape of the Linen Micarta Handle ensures perfect grip and great durability.

Gekido means Big Movement, Big Change, or aggressive movement towards new challenges. We admire the professional and fine craftsman spirit taking on new challenges and we believe KAGAYAKI Gekido Damascus knives will excel on the current Japanese knife market as one of best and fine Damascus kitchen knives. We recommend them to Damascus lovers, experienced users and professionals.

Today, we bring you the most popular blades: gSantokuh and gGyuto 210mmh.
Petty knives are being crafted now and will be added to the selection in the near future.


   We have prepared nice decorative Black Lacquered Wooden Saya which is matching with KAGAYAKI Gekido Black Color of handles and beautiful Damascus blades.

Ɂ@Gekko Kiwami               by JCK

   Unique, beautiful and reasonable price range of Gekko Damascus knives have been one of the most popular knives among our selections.

   Affordable price range, yet high quality and high cutting performance. Gekko knife is not only beautiful and unique, but also have many other reasons why Gekko knives have been so popular for long period.

   However, due to far more increased demands than they can produce, we regret for having a delivery problem for these beautiful knives since the beginning of the year 2013.

   In order to solve the delivery problem, we have recently found another manufacturer who produces similar beautiful Damascus knife.  At the beginning, I thought it is a copy of Gekko knives, but after we listened the craftsmanfs explanation how this new Damascus knife is made, we recognized this knife exceeds Gekko knifefs quality standard with the extra attention and care to the manufacturing processes. After our study and testing, we have decided to start carrying this beautiful new Damascus knife with the name of gGekko Kiwamih (Gekko Premium).

   Gekko Kiwami knife features a special Quenching Process called gSalt-Bathh, which makes more stable and the best result after each time of quenching process, Gekko Kiwami knives are thoroughly Salt-Bath Quenching process.  It is difficult to do this quenching process with large batch, therefore this method of quenching process is often be used for custom knife or high quality, high price range knives.

   Fit&Finish and Excellent Polishing process.
   
When we compare to Gekko Kiwami and Regular Gekko knives,  we can recognize more natural taste and looks of Tsuchime Hemmering pattern and the blade is nicely polished and beautiful Damascus layers pattern is more visible and attractive.


   Handle is made of Black Pakka Wood with stainless steel bolster. Both Handle and Bolster have rounded shape for comfortable grip.


   This knife is Truly worth to be called gGekko Kiwami (Premium)h.  We have prepared nice decorative Black Lacquered Wooden Saya which is matching with Gekko Kiwami's Black Pakka Wood Handle and this knife's Hammering texture and taste.

   Another high quality, beautiful Tsuchime Damascus Knife gGekko h is now being available for sale !!
