Gengetsu 180mm Stainless Clad White #2 Wa-Petty

Gengetsu is a new line from JKI.  For quite some time, we have wanted to make a line like this... stainless clad carbon.  After some testing, we finally got something we were happy with.  These knives are a bit more sturdy than some of the super thin knives we sell.  However, they are still very thin behind the edge, not unlike our Kochi or Gesshin Heiji knives.  The outsides of the knife are stainless, to help protect the knife from rust and corrosion.  However, the inside is white #2... a carbon steel known for taking amazing edges, being easy to sharpen, and having nice toughness.


These knives come with burnt chestnut octagonal handles because they are some of my favorites... more dense than ho wood, a bit heavier, and they retain amazing grip when wet.  I also happen to like the way they look.  Gengetsu knives also come with ho wood sayas.


These knives are an exclusive to JKI and a collaboration between us and one of the very talented craftsmen we work with.

Quick and agile Review by Chef Ryan Ellison
Out of the box sharpness was outstanding,and the fit and finish drew some curious stares and prompted a few people to ask about the knife. Super quick and agile with good bite. The lean profile zipped through pismo tenderloins faster than other pettys I have used or shorter French slicers... Great knife for professional use. Grip was as advertised, comfortable and your grip will not slip with grease or blood around. (Posted on 2/8/12)
