Hattori Forums FH Series Petty (120mm and 150mm, African Black Wood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day


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, Master Hattori chose the African Black wood, which has an elegant look of dark & simple textures. Hattori's fine custom hand working process can be seen on its well hand contoured and perfect shaped handle.

Mr. Hattori believes that the comfortable and well balanced handles are as important as the good blades, so he pays a special attention to the details of not only for the outside looks, but also for the durability against crack and shrinkage that may happen in a long range of use on these natural materials. Before assembling and shaping the handle slabs, each selected wooden block is stabilized in the boiled wax for 3 hours, and then cut into two pieces for matching woodgrain patterns for both sides. In fact, when I first saw and gripped it in my hand, I felt something warmness and comfortable sense of touch with this hand shaped natural wood handle.

A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.

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.

 

Important

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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

Sharp and well balanced

The knife very sharp out of the box, excelent finished, not sure how long it will keep the edge because I only have it for a month or so, using daily and it still perform as new so hopefully there’s no need to sharpen next few weeks, not much care needed, I hand wash only, dry immediately after use, no chipping found. I have knives from Shun (Hiro), Yaxell (Gou), Wusthof (Ikon), Victorinox, Zwilling and quickly found this one is my favourite one because of the sharpness and size and balance, the VG-10 steel using in this knife seem to reach the same performance with higher level SG-2 steel of Yaxell Gou or Shun Hiro, or I am not a professional to tell about the difference, comfortable handle and thin light blade make me feel more control while the length enough for most of the tasks in the kitchen, but also small for detail tasks. One of the most impression is how fast JCK shipping service work, place the order on Monday and get the knife on Friday, wow, usually for international shipping I have to wait for weeks in my country, thank you, definitely will purchase another soon.
