Uncompromising belief in every detail of the knife-making process! The 77 years old Grand Master, Ichiro Hattori is still devoting his energy and passion to create beautiful masterpieces.

He is now 77 years old. His knife making career has started at the age of 18, when he joined his farther's kitchen knife factory "Masahiro" in Seki. In 1971, he has opened his own workshop and started producing his own brand high quality kitchen knives and hunting knives. The "Hattori" brand knives have quickly gained great reputations from the end-users both in domestic and overseas for the finest workmanship.

 In the final finishing work, he gives his special care to check every detail, blade grinding and polishing flows, warping, angles and handle shaping, fitting etc etc.... Every knife that does not meet with his strict quality standard, is returned to be reworked from the beginning or thrown away.

Master Hattori's God Hand

 His "Never Compromise" attitude to seek the finest workmanship has made him called as "World's Best Knife Craftsman". He was also honored to receive "Excellent Skilled Craftsman Award" from Seki Knife Industrial Association.  When you hold his knife in hand and actually use it, you will know and admit that he really deserve it.

 We would like everyone to experience his fine work, but his production is very limited due to the time consuming hand works.
