Availability: Normally ships the same day


 

 "An Ultimate Masterpiece of Craftsmanship" - these are the only words that adequately describe these remarkable KD Series Chef’s knives, which are custom made by Mr. Hattori for discriminating culinary professionals.

 Mr. Hattori is an uncompromising traditional craftsman and he utilizes all of his available energy, passion, and expertise to create these beautiful Chef’s knives, which are made using ancient forging and sword making techniques. Each hand forged blade has a core layer of Cowry X and outer layers of Nickel-Stainless Damascus (SUS440 steel). Cowry X is a tough Powdered Metallurgy tool steel that was specially developed by Daido Steel Company for high-performance cutting tools. It contains a high volume of Carbon (3%) and Chromium (20%), some Molybdenum (1%) and a little Vanadium (0.3%). Amazingly, it can be heat treated to HRc. 63-67 without becoming brittle.

 The sturdy black linen Micarta handle fits your hand perfectly, is resistant to water and shrinkage, and is enhanced with a nickel silver bolster and rivets. Each knife comes in a traditional Kiri (Paulownia) wood presentation gift box.

 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.

Today, Mr. Hattori is a very well known Craftsman in the worldwide cutlery market. Unfortunately, we regret that his production of KD Series kitchen knives has been very limited since 2008 (Due to Mr. Hattori’s advanced age and reduced fitness) and there have been serious delivery delays. Indeed, many of our customers have been on a waiting list for KD kitchen knives since 2008. We are very sorry about this situation because, even for the customers on our waiting list, there is currently a very limited opportunity to purchase a Hattori KD kitchen knife. Each time Hattori KD Series kitchen knives become available, we will send an advance notice to customers registered on our waiting list, notifying them about the expected arrival date of the KD knives. We thank you for your continued understanding and patience.

 We sincerely hope that Mr. Hattori’s good health continues, that he can enjoy the rest of his knife making career, and that he can continue to produce beautiful, masterpiece KD kitchen knives. We expect that Mr. Hattori will be able to make a limited number of KD Series kitchen knives in future and we are very proud to be able to offer his final masterpiece KD kitchen knives, and other Hattori Limited Edition knives, to our customers.

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 Powdered High Speed Tool Steel blade kitchen knife that has a 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.
