This Limited Edition knife is from the great Master Ichiro Hattori !
Master Hattori has used a new type of DuPont™ Corian®, called "Black Space", for the handle scales of these knives. It has a unique, beautiful appearance that reminds us of stars and asteroids in the blackness of space.
DuPont™ Corian® is a practical handle material that is very durable and water resistant. Master Hattori has carefully hand-contoured the handle and Stainless Steel bolster to provide a perfect, comfortable grip and superb blade balance.
Only a limited number of these new Hattori FH Series knives with "Black Space" Corian® handles are available and we expect many of our discerning customers will find these stylish, highly practical knives appealing; consequently, please order soon to avoid disappointment!
After years of collaborative work with members of the "In the Kitchen" sub-forum at "Knife Forums" and the premier knife maker, Mr. Ichiro Hattori, we are proud to introduce our first JCK Original high-end Chef's knives: the "Hattori FH Series".
The Hattori FH Series is produced in very small batches to ensure the highest levels of product quality and performance. Every aspect of design and manufacture has been taken into consideration; from the ergonomics, geometry and balance of the blades and hand-contoured handles, to the special process used to heat treat the blades.
The blades of our FH Series knives are made from solid VG-10 Cobalt Steel (HRc. 60-61). At first glance these stainless steel blades might appear 'simple', but Master Hattori’s high level of craftsmanship and attention to detail is clearly visible if you carefully inspect their hand-sharpened edges and finely polished blades.
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.
I debone whole chicken very often at home. 4 weekly to make cat food and one or two for the humans in my household. I have a misono Swedish steel kiritsuke, a Masamoto Garasuki, a Masamoto KS ko-deba and a wusthof flexible deboning knife. This Hattori and the ko-deba are so far my favorite as they keep the keen edge for long. I prefer a very fine edge produced by an 8000 and 10000 grid stone but the relatively soft steel of most kirisuke just can’t keep the keen edge longer than 2 whole chickens. The ko-deba is better at that and I use it quite often even when working with turkeys. The Hattori’s factory edge looks like was produced on a belt sander giving it an aggressive edge that lasted so far 8 chickens. I probably will sharpen it with a 2000 or 800 grid stone to keep the “saw tooth” on its edge. It’s finish is by far the best amongst all the chicken deboning knives I have.
