Hattori Forums FH Series Petty (120mm and 150mm, 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 countors 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.

A mainstay of professional Western kitchens, the Petty knife is a small general-purpose knife used for peeling, shaping, and slicing fruits and vegetables, chopping herbs, and making garnishes. The compact size and relatively narrow blade of the Petty knife mean that it is very nimble and controllable, thus it is ideal for making precise cuts.

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.

Hattori Quality & Craftsmanship

Master Hattori’s passionate apprentice, Mr. Nagatomo, concentrates continuously when he is handcrafting the perfectly shaped handles of the Hattori FH series knifes. Utilizing at least 10 different manufacturing steps and several pieces of equipment, I observed him carefully shape and contour the handle by hand. With each process, the handle is gradually refined until it reaches the perfect shape and finish. I felt all of these steps and processes were necessary. Indeed, it takes time to achieve the Hattori Quality.

    12 inch petty

    First of all, this knife is gorgeous! I also own a Hattori gyuto and I absolutely love the attention to detail and the craftsmanship. The olive wood handle is exceptional and feels very sturdy and light. I love this knife but gave it a four star for two seasons: 1. The blade wasn’t very sharp when it arrived. It took some work, but it was relatively easy to give it a good edge. So, a rather small annoyance all in all. 2. The blade profile is very low (meaning that when pressed flat against a cutting board, there’s very little clearance between the handle and the board) which makes it rather hard to chop stuff on a board for anyone with medium to large hands. This is a certain disadvantage, but on the other hand this makes it an extremely nimble and precise knife, which is perfect for hand held cutting tasks. So, perfect for those little things, but a bit less versatile. That being said, I’m considering complementing it with the 15 inch version, which I will use for those tasks too big for this one, but too small for the full blown gyuto:)

    Hattori FH Ergonomics

    Excellent. I have many of both of these knives. The Vg10 steel in these knives does not experience the microchipping I have experienced in other similarly priced knives. The handle and overall build quality of these knives are second to none and JCK ships within the week. I am always happy buying these knives through them.
