This is the Custom Limited Edition and result of Collaborative works with Custom Handle Maker for making one of a kinds, Custom Limited Edition Hattori FH Series Wa Gyuto 240mm knife.
After years of 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.
The Hattori FH Series knives are produced in very small batches to ensure the highest levels of quality and performance. Every detail in design and manufacture has been taken into consideration, from the blade geometry to the special heat treat process and the blade finish.
The blade is made of VG-10 Cobalt Steel (HRc. 60 to 61). Even though the blade has a simple appearance, we can see Hattori’s detailed work and high level of craftsmanship - Especially the fine hand sharpening and polishing.
We have been working closely with Hattori to develop this new Wa Gyuto 240mm, which we hope will meet the needs of our customers and the current market trends.
The new Hattori FH Series Wa Gyuto 240mm Knife has a narrow blade tip and a spear point blade shape that not only looks smart, but is also highly practical for fine slicing and cutting tasks. The finger choil is carefully rounded by hand to provide a comfortable grip and allow good clearance between your hand and the cutting board.
This Hattori Wa Gyuto knife comes with an Custom Hand-Made Octagonal Arizona Desert Ironwood Burl Handle with Composite Stone ferrule, Corina collar and endcap with Brass and Grey Liner spacers.
For safekeeping, this knife comes with a matching Black Lacquered Wooden Saya ("Sheath") and a black pakkawood Saya pin.
This knife comes packaged in an elegant wooden presentation box that is secured with woven fabric ties / straps.
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.

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.
