This year, 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.
Cocobolo wood has a rich red-brown color and a beautiful, unique natural woodgrain pattern. Hattori's fine handwork can be seen in the perfectly shaped, hand contoured, custom handles.
This is the 17th version of Hattori "SAN" Limited edition" celebrating his 80th year old anniversary. He has selected distinctive natural wood material Cocobolo wood handle, trimmed with polished Premium Stag spacers, Nickel silver Hilt and solid Stainless Butt with lanyard hole and screw on end, Combination of Hattori's famous Cowry-X Damascus blade and stylish custom-handmade handle, Produced only 4 pieces with serial numbers engraved on the blade, 傘 SAN etching on the blade and Presentation box.
