Hattori Premium Master Series
In Seki city there is a skilled master who has spent the past 50 years creating unwavering high-quality blades. The knives born of Hattori's hands and soul are the product of his intimate knowledge of edged tools, his close attention to every small detail of all the processes and his uncompromising stance. They are valued both domestically and overseas and Hattori is known as one of the greatest artisans in Japan.
It is not an exaggeration to say that the Hattori Premium Master Series blades created in collaboration with this one of a kind Maker meet even professional needs, and are the finest, top-of-the-line kitchen knives in Japan.
The blades are made of VG-10 stainless steel, the most acclaimed type of steel in Japan. Although simple in appearance, the true value of these pure steel knives lies in their sharpness. The easy to sharpen thin blade has the finish of the ideal time-resistant blade.
For Hattori, a fine quality sharp blade is the topmost priority and this is where you can see condensed his uncompromising stance, commitment and confidence. The difference between good and bad luxury knives lies, in the end, in of whether the Maker can produce this good blade or not.
In addition to their fine blade, what adds extra value to these knives is the handmade handle. Rounded by hand to achieve perfection of grip and comfort, this handle is the fruit of Hattori's many years of experience and knowledge. The handle is made of Linen Micarta, a material that is durable, does not shrink in water and offers a strong grip. The beautiful tree-ring pattern is created during the process of hand contouring, and gives the knife its characteristic look. Hattori has been doing his work his way day in and day out, but this territory he considers natural is impossible to reach or imitate by other knife makers, due to what they consider lack of profitability and time.
A complete lineup of 15 types of top-quality knives from the Hattori Premium Master Series, created by the world-class Japanese craftsman Hattori, now makes its world debut.
We recommend these knives with confidence to all professional cooks, users who seek the highest quality and cooking knives fans.
