This Limited Edition knife is from the great Master Ichiro Hattori !
Master Hattori has used a new type of DuPont™ Corian® for the handle scales of these knives. It has a unique, beautiful appearance that reminded us of a similarly beautiful wintertime experience, hence the name "SNOW IN THE DARK".
DuPont™ Corian® is a practical handle material that is very durable and water resistant. Master Hattori has carefully hand-contoured the handle and Stainless Steel bolster to provide a perfect, comfortable grip and superb blade balance.
Only a limited number of these new Hattori FH Series knives with "SNOW IN THE DARK" Corian® handles are available and we expect many of our discerning customers will find these stylish, highly practical knives appealing; consequently, please order soon to avoid disappointment!
After years of collaborative work with members of the "In the Kitchen" sub-forum at "Knife Forums" and the premier knife maker, Mr. Ichiro Hattori, we are proud to introduce our first JCK Original high-end Chef's knives: the "Hattori FH Series".
The Hattori FH Series is produced in very small batches to ensure the highest levels of product quality and performance. Every aspect of design and manufacture has been taken into consideration; from the ergonomics, geometry and balance of the blades and hand-contoured handles, to the special process used to heat treat the blades.
The blades of our FH Series knives are made from solid VG-10 Cobalt Steel (HRc. 60-61). At first glance these stainless steel blades might appear 'simple', but Master Hattori’s high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is clearly visible if you carefully inspect their hand-sharpened edges and finely polished blades.
The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Sujihiki is particularly useful for trimming away sinew and fat from meat, finely slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

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.
very sharp and well balance
Excellent knife & value, the handle is even nicer than expected. It sharpens easily and the edge lasts. My only quibble is a minor one, I wish the spine was rounded but that is something I can do myself.
Excellent knife for craving meats of roast beef, roast chicken, ham. I used the knife to serve 30 people in a Chrismas party. The handle is a bit too short for people with big hands
