After years of the collaborative work with the Knife Forums "In the Kitchen" members and the premier knife maker, Mr.Ichiro Hattori, we are proud to introduce our first JCK Original, FH Series Hattori / Forums high end Chef's knives.
Hattori FH Series knife is produced in very small batches to ensure a high level of quality and performance. Every detail in design and manufacture has been taken into consideration from the special heat treat process, to the hand contoured handle and to the balance, ergonomics and profile of each knife.
The blade is made of VG-10 Cobalt Steel (HRC60 to 61). Even though it is simple appearance, we can feel the Hattori’s detailed works high level of craftsmanship from finely hand sharpened and polished blade.
For the handle material, the Black Linen Micarta was chosen for durability with solid stainless steel bolster and rivets. Each handle is hand contoured to fit your hand comfortably, and the full tang is tapered down for the perfect weight balance.
The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose knife.

This knife comes with 50/50 double bevel edge geometry for both right and left handed use.
For your information, Japanese Kitchen knives are generally designed for right hand use with a slightly thicker and rounded grinding on the right side blade and a less rounded (almost straight flat) grinding on the left side blade. However, both right and left hander can use the knives that have double bevel edge sharpened 50/50 without problems.
We believe the quality and cutting performance of Japanese knives are the best in the world, and hope you enjoy fine craftsmanship and sharp edge with your new knife. With proper cares, every Japanese knife should be your special cooking partner for long times.
This is the Stainless steel blade kitchen knife that has a good rust resistance for easy maintenance. However, it may get rust, if kept in wet condition.
The cutting edge is absolutely amazing; it glides effortlessly through any food, meat or vegetable that you are working on. This is becoming my favorite knife.
I've purchased this knife several weeks ago and really happy with it. Light, exceptionally well balanced, practical micarta handle. A perfect tool. This is the best knife on my kitchen so far. Also I have to mention quick delivery and perfect service from JCK and Koki side. Thank you very much for this experience !
This Hattori knife became a new tool in my kitchen two weeks ago. Cocobolo handle is beautiful and very comfortable. For length of this knife I use it exclusively for cutting meat. But it is unusually light despite the blade length and size of the knife. Compared to Hattori Damascus Santoku 160mm(182g) or the same Nakiri 160mm(208g) weights only 174g. But I have a certain hand and better sensitivity with a heavier knife. However, I am satisfied with the knife, but I still need to get used to Hattori FH Series Gyuto 210mm.
