Hattori Forums FH Series FH-4C Santoku 170mm (6.6inch, Cocobolo 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 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.

The tall blade and rounded nose / tip of the Santoku make it a versatile knife that is well suited to cutting meat, fish, or vegetables; Hence it’s name, which literally means “Three-purpose”. The Santoku is often recommended as a multi-purpose kitchen 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.

 

Important

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.

Best Knife I've Ever Owned

This is the second Hattori Santoku I've purchased from Japanese Chefs Knife and it is by far, the best knife I've ever owned. It fits my hand perfect, it's light and very sharp. I was taking my knife back and forth to both locations where I live and finally bought the second one. The service was amazing and the knife arrived very quickly. Don't hesitate to purchase this exceptional knife. I also own 4 other Hattori knives and will never purchase anything other than Hattori.

Great knife to work with

I especially like the balance and the comfortable handle, but of course it's also sharp, and easy to maintain the edge. And as usual, top service from JCK. Recommended.

A real beautiful knife

This knife is really well balanced and feels good in the hand : you understand right away the special care in manufacturing the handle. The blade is wonderfully thin and slices beautifully, as one should expect from a Hattori creation. All in all, a perfect santoku.

Beautiful knife

Cutting is buttery and smooth. The knife came with a great edge already, and just a bit of finishing has taken it to a razor edge. Fit and finish are excellent.
