This HATTORI SAN series — to celebrate the 80-year-old anniversary of Ichiro Hattori, one of the famous master blacksmith in Japan — is made of whole VG-10 stainless steel for professional which provides excellent rust resistance and a long-lasting edge as well as its beautifulness.
* Please be noted that the stock is extremely limited. (only 30pcs in the world !)
The ergonomic designed stylish handle is hand crafted out of waterproof desert ironwood, the densest wood on earth. Therefore it is difficult to process the material by machine, that’s why the handle is made & finished manually by the blacksmith as well as the blade. The handle is so easy to grip and it’s weight is very well balanced.
[about Ichiro Hattori]
