The Custom Limited Edition knife (Year 2020 Special Limited Edition) is from the great Master Hattori !
Master Hattori has used a unique, beautifully figured piece of Green Color Stabilized Box Elder Wood for the handle of each Sujihiki 300mm. The wooden handle and Stainless Steel bolster have been carefully hand-contoured to provide a perfect grip and superb blade balance. Perfectly polished Stabilized Box Elder Wood makes beautiful accent and coloring, is also highly water-resistant and will not split or crack as a result of rapidly changing humidity levels.
Each Hattori Custom Limited Edition Sujihiki 300mm knife is "One-of-a-Kind" and comes with the Serial No. and available with only 5Pcs. (Serial No.1 to No.5)
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.
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.
Seriously, this knife should be the industry standard. But for real, this knife is the most comfortable, sharp, light, easy to maintain, and durable knives I've ever used
I was amazed how thin and sharp the knife is straight from the box. It is very beautiful and slides trough the meat and fish without any resistance. I have only one sugesstion - the handle is a little small for people with bigger hands, but the knife is for recommendation definitely. Best regards, Sinisa from Croatia
