      Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan
     SG-II Nickel Damascus Wa Gyuto

                                       by JCK

  JCK Originalfs new products Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan ZDP-189 Clad Wa Series (released in November 2015) are having great reputation and they are very hot knives now. Many users are impressed and happy with the cutting performance and edge retention of the ZDP-189 Special Steel knives.

  SG-II is also reputable great Powdered High Speed Tool Steel from Takefu steel company (Carbon 1.25 to 1.45 %, Chromium 14 to 16%, Molybdenum 2.3 to 3.3 %, Vanadium 1.8 to 2.2 %)

  This time, we have requested Sukenari to make beautiful Damascus blade version of SG-II steel of special Wa Gyuto knives.  Below are the main reasons why we have chosen SG-II Steel for our new Damascus knives.

 SG-II steel blade does not have such ultra-high-hardness as the ZDP-189 steel blade(HRC66 to 67), but it still has great high-hardness HRC63 to 64, you can enjoy and taste outstanding cutting performance and edge retention. Also it is easier to re-sharpen SG-II blade than ZDP-189 blade.

  Sukenarifs great experienced and fine traditional hammer forging process brought the result of beautiful Wavy Damascus layers pattern and extra high-cutting performance and edge retention.


 
Beautifully Mirror Polishing process makes fine impact of Wavy White color Damascus layer blade.



  Each item comes with Octagon Shape Magnolia Wooden Handle with Water Buffalo Horn Handle and Magnolia Wooden Saya.

  We are proud to introduce another beautiful masterpiece, Fu-Rin-Ka-Zan SG-II Nickel Damascus Wa Gyuto !!

            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.

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.

Master Saito New Cutom Knife Collections

At the Seki Outdoor Knife Show in October 2014, I fell in love with this unusual handmade knife. When I picked it up and had a closer look, I saw that every little detail had been carefully taken care of, it had perfect grip and balance, and overall it was the fruit of its creator's spirit and philosophy. Hiroshi Saito, the maker of this knife, has been dedicating long years to creating custom knives. The manufacturing process of custom knives is very different from that of factory knives, which follows many standardized automatic steps. Making custom knives requires effort, and the value of the final product lies in how the product reflects the creator's philosophy and skill to perfection.


  The blade's so-called hairline finish is the product of a highly difficult process that gives the knife a unique texture and presence. The blade is made from premium Japanese VG-10 stainless steel.

 
The slightly rounded curved ironwood handle and stainless bolster are designed to match the unique Up-Swept blade shape and to fit the so-called 'pinch grip', the way many numbers of users hold a knife. Designed to be easy to grip, this beautiful wood grain ironwood handle is hand contoured and finished for universal use.

We bring you a limited offer of two sizes: one compact Utility knife (160 mm blade) and the other, a Gyuto with a 185 mm blade, Gyuto 240mm.

  For all those who love cooking, from professional chefs to people cooking at home, if you are looking for slightly different, high quality handmade knives, these Saito knives are IT!

UP!     Master Nagao Final Collection
    VG-10 Nickel Damascus Gyuto 210mm

After Master Nagao retired last year due to his old age and lack of successors, we have received many messages from his fans expressing regret at the news and messages recognizing his achievements and praising the high quality of his kitchen knives.

  We were also shocked to hear the news about Master Nagao's retirement, but we know that his passion and craftsmanship will continue to live in his knives and will never be forgotten.

  His strong devotion to creating the perfect sharpness and to researching the best way to achieve it made a very strong impression on anyone who knew him.


  Tenmi Jyuraku Aogami Super was his steel kitchen knife masterpiece fully embodying his vision. The Tenmi Jyuraku Damascus series was a series of great Damascus knives combining style and sharpness, characteristic of Nagao's unique works.

  Towards the end of his long career, Master Nagao created the VG-10 nickel Damascus Gyuto 210
o.


  He managed to create a Damascus pattern like never seen before by incorporating his entire forging skill acquired throughout the years. The pattern of gentle waves beginning at the top of the blade turns into a more irregular and detailed Damascus pattern close to the edge. Knives with such an unusual Damascus design are rare, as this is an original pattern created in Master Nagao's unique forging process.

  Gyuto 210o, the most popular tool with both home cooks and professional chefs is now ready.

  Perfect for the end of the Nagao knife collection, these knives are beautiful and filled with his unique ideas. This last work vibrates with Master Nagao's unending search for the perfect sharpness. We hope you pay them the respect they deserve as the last pieces of the Nagao collection, and we hope you continue to enjoy using them for many years to come.

  Master Nagao is currently 80 years old. He is still completely dedicated to knife making and continues to work at the factory every day. Regarding the future of Japanese knives, he believes that he needs to pass on the know-how of good knife-making to the future creators and craftsmen and continues to work towards this goal.@

  Here and now we would like to express out gratitude for Master Nagao's great work and to convey our respect for all the kitchen knives born out of his hands. We hope that you continue to cherish them as very special knives.

 Suien VG-10 Damascus Santoku and Nakiri

  We started to offer the Suien Chinese Cleaver over 10 years ago. Since then, the Suien Chinese Cleaver has been immediately recognized as a great product by our professional customers because of its fine cutting performance and affordable price range compared to other famous Chinese Cleavers made in Japan.

  The maker, Suien, has just introduced this VG-10 Damascus Santoku and Nakiri knivese. There are many types of VG-10 Damascus knives available today, but today we bring you Suien Damascus knives characterized by two major features that are also advantages.

  The first feature is that the blade is forged.

  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.

  New Addition of the ZDP-189 series from Sanetsu

  As you know, the ZDP-189 is the highend powdered high speed tool steel as well as the Cowry-X, but unfortunately, it is getting very rare to use for knives in the market, due to the recent price increase, high minimum requirement and longer lead-time to get this steel.

  JCK has been introducing several ZDP-189 knives exclusively from Sanetsu, who is now a only maker working for ZDP-189 knives in Seki, but they have announced to discontinue the ZDP-189 knives after used up their current invetory of ZDP-189 steels. It's sad to hear of their decision,  but using the existing steels, we are pleased to introduce new addition of Gyuto 270mm. Beautifully mirror polished blade with elegant nickel and stainless Damascus design. Matching large Cocobolo wood and Black Linen Micarta handles are hand contoured for sure and comfortable grip with mosaic pins.

  We recommend you to obtain one of the ZDP-189 knives while the supply lasts, and experience and enjoy the amazingly sharp and incredible cutting performance.

 Mizuno Tanrenjo Special Order Honyaki(DX) Wa Gyuto 240mm


  Mizuno Tanrenjo is one of the respected Japanese Traditional style knife makers, located in Sakai City, Osaka where is a capital of Japanese Traditional style knives famous for "Hizukuri blades" (hot forging process).

  With a long time of knife making history and high level of craftsmanship&spirits,  Mizuno Tanrenjo has been producing fine Japanese Traditional style knives for over 140 years. Currently 3rd generation Mizuno Akiharu, 4th generation Mizuno Yasuyuki and 5th generation Mizuno Atsushi&Nanako are working together to keep the Mizuno`s traditions for next generation.

  Their products are being used and admired by many professionals and master chefs. But how can they define the good knives or not ?  Of course, the basic conditions of good knives should be sharp, longer edge retention and ease of resharpening etc, but the serious pro users seek something beyond that, and they feel and find it with Mizuno knives.

  Mizuno Tanrenjo especially concentrates to make practical knives, we mean for making real good made Japanese Traditional knives. It is difficult to feel them from the looks, but once you taste the Mizuno Japanese Traditional Style Knifefs cutting performance, you can understand why many of professional Chefs select Mizuno brand Japanese Traditional style knives and become their repeat users.

  Unfortunately it is getting more difficult to find a real good made Japanese Traditional style knife in today's market, but we believe Mizuno Tanrenjo will continue to remain as one of the best traditional makers for many more years to come.

 Since over a year ago, we have been requesting Master Mizuno to make the special Honyaki Wa Gyuto, because we often received requests for such item from our customers and it was also our dream to introduce Mizuno Tanrenjo Honyaki Wa Gyuto.


 Finally, it is the time, and Master Mizuno finished a real masterpiece of Honyaki Wa Gyuto 240mm.

  Beautifully mirror polished Solid White Steel #2 (Honyaki Series) or Solid Blue Steel #2 (Honyaki DX Series) blade has Katana-like Hamon line. It features new blade profile of slightly thicker and larger dimension than Mizunofs other Wa Gyuto blades, and is nicely hand tapered down toward the cutting edge and the blade tip.

  One of our loyal customers, who was the first person to request this Mizuno Honyaki Wa Gyuto, and has been waiting it with us together for long time, is now the first proud owner of Mizuno Honyaki Wa Gyuto. He was excited to receive the knife and very impressed with its beauty and cutting ability. He has used the word gMightyh and hMasterpieceh for expressing this  Mizuno Honyaki Wa Gyuto. Here is the report and comments from the first owner and professional chef who has a serious eye to a real knife: 



  
Honyaki blades are very hard, it is more difficult to re-sharpen,maintain Honyaki knives. As each person carefully selects own knife for needs and demands, Honyaki blade kitchen knives also requires to select experienced and skillful users and owners. Recommended for especially experienced and serious users who knows and understand the characters of Honyaki blades, can feel the craftsmanfs soul.

  Thanks very much again for Master Mizuno and his special effort for making special order made Honyaki Wa Guyto.
