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. Each item in this special limited edition collection will be marked with a Serial No.
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.
As the end of year 2021 approaches, Hattori have just launched their 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. 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.
