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 also 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 quantites due to the rarity or limited availability of handle materials or blade materials.
In the end of year 2021, Hattori have launched the new “GECKO” brand knife collection, which will grow over time to become an exiting 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 environment of the COVID-19 pandemic.
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, Custom Order Carving Knife Special Set.

The primary purpose of Filleting knives is to separate the flesh of the fish from the skin and bones. There are a wide variety of designs, each differing in terms of their blade shape, thickness, grind, and the stiffness (or flexibility) of the blade. This knife can also be used for 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.
