Availability: Normally ships the same day

A few years ago, Master Hattori became 80 years old. In Japan, a person’s 80th birthday is commemorated with a special celebration called 傘寿 / Sanjyu. To celebrate his special anniversary year, and his proud achievements as a Master craftsman, Hattori has decided to produce a Special Limited Edition Collection of knives called the 傘 San Series. 

The Hattori 傘 San Series knife collection will feature special, very limited production models, which Master Hattori can no longer produce in large quantities due to the rarity or limited availability of handle materials or blade materials.

In the end of year 2021, Hattori launched the new “GECKO” brand knife collection, which will grow over time to become an existing series of distinctive, high-end knives.

Needless to say, Hattori is Japan’s top-ranked Knife Maker and Hattori’s new high-end GECKO brand knife collection will be handcrafted using all of Hattori’s experience, skill, spirit and passion. Just like the Hattori 傘 SAN Series knife collection, the Hattori GECKO brand knife collection will feature special, very limited production models, which Master Hattori can no longer produce in large quantities due to the rarity or limited availability of handle materials or blade materials.

Each knife in the Hattori GECKO knife collection will have a unique “GECKO” Trade Mark logo etched on to knife blade. In Japan, the “GECKO” is considered a special creature, which brings good luck and fortune, protecting and preserving your family and your house. This communicates Hattori’s sincere wish that all Hattori knife fans and serious knife collectors will have good luck and fortune in their lives — Especially during the difficult recent environment.

We are proud and excited to introduce the new, high-end Hattori GECKO brand knife collection to our customers.

We have closely worked with Hattori to create the the SAN-GECKO special edition, limited quantity, 210mm San-Mai Gyuto knives utilize the reputable High Quality Japanese Powdered High Speed Tool Steel, SG-II. Master Hattori carefully selected the materials for these San-Mai (Three-piece laminated) knives: The blade is made with an SG-II Powdered High Speed Tool Steel core that is sandwiched between two layers of hard VG-2 stainless steel. This laminated blade construction provides extra strength and durability for the blade and the high carbon VG-2 stainless steel resists scratches and blade warpage. Hattori carefully selected these steel materials to ensure the creation of an efficient, practical knife that offers high cutting performance and excellent edge retention.

    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.
