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, the Black Linen Micarta was chosen for durability with solid stainless steel bolster and rivets. Each handle is hand contoured to fit your hand comfortably, and the full tang is tapered down for the perfect weight balance.
The long, narrow, graceful blade of the Sujihiki is particularly useful for trimming away sinew and fat from meat, finely slicing meat or boneless fish, or for filleting and skinning fish. The long blade allows the meat or fish to be cut in one single drawing motion, from heel to tip.

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.
Very pleased with the Hattori Sujihiki I bought. It is nicely balanced, beautifully finished, and very, very sharp. Completely satisfied.
At first, I liked the feeling of the handle so much that I was fascinated by this knife, but after using it a few times, I feel that the handle is too small for my hand even though I'm a woman. The feeling of the handle itself is the best knife I have, but perhaps because I have used octagonal wooden handles often recently, the handle of the Hattory feels somewhat small. The knife itself has excellent performance. I'd like to try other knives from Hattori.
Fast shiping, very sharp, excellent gift for my friend
After using my first Hattori knife for years, I finally decided it was time to upgrade to an entire set of them. They are wonderful knives! Very lightweight and well-balanced. I like the Linen handle, it looks like real wood but withstands being around water. I always hand-wash and dry my Hattori knives to avoid damaging them in the dishwasher. The steel holds a sharpening for a long time, and I only need to have a professional sharpening done once a year. These knives are a joy to work with!
Have you ever heard buying 5 star hotel for 2 star hotel price? This knife is amazing quality, can’t believe they make such a great quality knife for fair price
