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.
I have purchased many knives from JCK. I always wanted to get one of these Hattori knives. I decided to pull the trigger. The knife shipped super fast. Kudos. When I got the knife, I was a bit dismayed at the handle. Ergonomic... yes. However, mine on one side had the finish removed. Looked like someone sanded the finish/coating off. It's still good but does not match the other side. cosmetic flaw. I have had the opportunity to use it and wow, it cuts. So I took off 1 star for the cosmetic blemish on the handle. I was expecting better.
Excellent product! I highly recommend it..
I've had the knive for a couple weeks and am in love. It's just an absolute joy to hold and use and stays sharp even when cutting very fibrous leek grass
Been using this as my main knife for a while now and found no issues with it so far. It is lighter and better balanced than the German knife that I used before. The blade on the Hattori is harder but I haven't found it to be more difficult to sharpen. Seems to retain the edge quite good. The handle might be a bit on the small side if you have large hands.
Best knife I’ve ever owned it’s extremely sharp it feels great in my hand and overall looks amazing if you don’t own one I recommend you add this beauty to your collection
