The Custom Limited Edition knife (Year 2021 Special Limited Edition) is from the great Master Hattori !
Master Hattori chose to use a very unique and beautiful Green Malachite GemStone Handle. The Green Malachite Gemstone Handle has a beautiful appearance and to ensure that it can be gripped comfortably, it has been carefully contoured and polished by hand. The full tang is taper ground to reduce weight and perfect balance.
Each Hattori Custom Limited Edition Santoku knife is "One-of-a-Kind" and comes with the Serial No. and available with only 5Pcs. (Serial No.1 (01-2021) to No.5(05-2021))
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 tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen 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.
Great knife like all Japanese products, they make the best of everything in the world with unbridled attention to detail...
I like a short, wide knife and Santoku knives fit the bill for me. I own several and simply put this is by far my favorite. Geometry is great and the hadle is very comfortable. The edge out of the box easily shaved hair off my wrist. Super happy with this one!
As expected- knife was on time, packaged well, and Im happy with the purchase
The best quality in exclusive execution. Much has been written about the quality of Hattori knives. But the conclusion is almost always one - these are some of the best knives for professional and home use in the kitchen. When I saw Hattori knives with exclusive stone handles, I immediately bought them. However, at first there were doubts about which handle to choose - turquoise or malachite. But I quickly resolved this issue. Ordered both - one Gyuto and one Santoku :) Knives were a wonderful gift for my wife on her wedding anniversary. I received a parcel from Japan to Ukraine via DHL in 4 days! Thanks to Master Hattori for these wonderful tools and Koki for the best service.
This is a very good looking knife that also cuts well. It has a good balance and the handle suites my hand.
