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 mainly because of the handle. I usually buy Saji and Ittou knives, but decided to try out a Hattori as well. The blade is nice and sharp, but I don't really care for the aesthetics. Hattori blades are fine, but look pretty dull in comparison to damascus offerings from other craftsmen. I'm not really a fan of the printed Hattori logo either. I would have much preferred an engraved logo. But, at the end of the day, the performance of the knife is great, so I can't fault it for that. I just wish the blade was as flashy as the handle.
