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.
For the handle material, Master Hattori chose the Cocobolo wood which has a light brown color with unique & beautiful natural woodgrain textures. Hattori's fine custom hand working process can be seen on its well hand contoured and perfect shaped handle.
Mr. Hattori believes that the comfortable and well balanced handles are as important as the good blades, so he pays a special attention to the details of not only for the outside looks, but also for the durability against crack and shrinkage that may happen in a long range of use on these natural materials. Before assembling and shaping the handle slabs, each selected wooden block is stabilized in the boiled wax for 3 hours, and then cut into two pieces for matching woodgrain patterns for both sides. In fact, when I first saw and gripped it in my hand, I felt something warmness and comfortable sense of touch with this hand shaped natural wood handle.
Honesuki knives were originally intended to be a specialist knife for de-boning and breaking down poultry, but many people have found this knife is also capable of filleting fish or red meat and can perform many of the tasks that Western boning knives are used for.

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.
A very beautiful and well made knife. Handle is very ergonomic and fits good in the hand, especially for we older people with arthritis. Slightly longer blade than my last honesuki and more acute angle at the tip so can get into tighter places. It's a joy to use, Mr Hattori does excellent work. Nice to get a knife that needs no touch up or reworking the hanle
A perfect single edge blade with amazing sharpeness. A fine balanced knife with beautiful cocobolo wooden handle. It's one of these little jewels in my kitchen.
A great boning knife that I have ever had.
I like this knife - it is very easy to hold and works well
The Hattori boning knife I bought from JCk is the best knife in my whole collection of kitchen ware. I plan on buying the rest of the line as soon as I can save up enough money. Koki is also very helpful and responsive, I look forward to purchasing much more from JCK soon!
