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.

  • 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.

  • We recommend using Japanese whetstones to re-sharpen the knife, when it gets dull.

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.
