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 bought this knife for my grandson who is a young Sous chef. It has changed what his prep ingredients look like. So able to cut so thin. The handle fits the knife’s ease of use. He told me it raised his skill level so much. Now he has the gyuto and the petty knife.
Very good and sharpening knife...soon I will get new one
I’ve been a sushi chef for many years now and used/owned numerous different brands of knives. From Masamoto moly blend, Suisin “honyaki”, Masanobu vg-10, gesshin hide, nenox, nenohi. These are some good quality knives and the Hattori FH is somewhere in the middle. The best part about the FH is the bang for buck value, weight/balance ratio and the handle is comfortable and fit nicely. The edge retention could be better but it sharpens easily, very easily. Going back to value, I don’t think there is a better knife for the price.That’s why I’ve owned 3 of them. If there is a better knife at this price range, please let me know I would love to try it out.
Exactly was i was looking for. Great knife and quality from every angle. Top that with less than 48 hrs delivery from Seki to Vancouver and I call this perfect.
Amazing customer service, fast shipping and excellent knife. It is so sharp and cuts so smooth. I bought three knifes from this series as a gift and the receiver was very happy. Make sure you have a way to profect the knifes in storage. The wooden covers are a great option for drawer storage!
