Hattori Forums FH Series Gyuto (210mm and 240mm, 2 Sizes, Olive Wood Handle)

Availability: Normally ships the same day

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 carefully selected some elegant natural Olive Wood, which has a unique and beautiful woodgrain pattern and a warm, rich color. The perfect shape and contours of the handles further showcases Hattori's fine custom handwork. "Natural beauty" and "elegance" are the words that best describe the new Hattori FH Series Gyuto with Olive Wood Handle.

Mr. Hattori believes a comfortable and well balanced handle is just as important as a good blade. Accordingly, he not only carefully considers the external looks of the handle, but also the durability. Since untreated natural wood can shrink and develop cracks during long-term usage, Hattori carefully selects each block of wood and boils it in wax for 3 hours to stabilize it. After stabilization, the block is cut in half to produce two pieces that have matching woodgrain patterns, these 'scales' are then affixed to the knife tang and hand shaped. When I first gripped one of these handcrafted, natural wood handles, I immediately noted the warm, silky feel and comfortable contours; I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

The Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques to achieve a wide range of kitchen tasks and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fish, vegetables and fruits. The Gyuto is true multi-purpose 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.

  • Please do not put the knife in the dishwasher machine for cleaning.
  • Please do not leave the knife in water or wet condition for long time.
  • After using, please hand wash the blade, bolster and handle thoroughly, and wipe it clean and dry with soft clothes, and keep it in dry place.
  • This is an extremely sharp knife. Please use special cares in using and storing it.
  • Unlike German made knives, Japanese knife blades are ground to thin cutting edge for sharper cutting and easier re-sharpening. Please protect the edge from hitting hard materials to avoid chipping or cracking.
  • Please do not use it to cut bone or frozen foods, any hard shell foods such as lobster and crab.
  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

    Second hattori fh

    I've been gently using my hattori 210mm gyuto with olive wood handle for about a year now and I love it. I enjoy it so much that I recently decided to purchase the same knife in the 240mm for slightly larger tasks. The knives are simple in style yet beautiful. I often receive compliments when people see it in use! As for functionality it has been an amazing blade, I use my 210mm for most prep that will need a clean precise cut, and 240mm as my work horse and slicer.

    Really good knife

    I'm a professional chef and had been using many different brands of knives, this hattori knife is one the the best. Nice and firm steel, once I sharpening it at the first time, will last me long time of using.

    Awesome knife!

    Out of all of the knives that I own and I have a good collection of knives of various makes including many Japanese knives of various flavors, this is one of my favorites. This knife is perfectly balanced and light and nimble but big enough to get larger jobs done easily. It is super sharp out of the box and gorgeous. I am so glad I ponied up and got this knife, - worth every penny...
