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.
This is the 30th version of Hattori "SAN" Limited edition" cerebrating his 80th year old anniversary. He has selected Hattori Urbane Hunters series which is sophisticated urban style knife with sturdy and good strength and well balanced for practical use.
SAN-30M Urbane Hunters come with the Black/Green Linen Micarta Handle. Nowadays, Linen Micarta is becoming common and popular material for the handle. Hattori started to use Linen Micarta for the knife handle over 20 or 30 years ago. This unique coloring and nicely hand contoured Black/Green Linen Micarta is the ones which Hattori carefully selected for his handle making over the decades ago. The SAN-30M is produced only 5 pieces with serial numbers engraved on the bolster, 傘 SAN etching on the blade and Presentation box. The Serial No. comes with "2020.10 No.1 to No.5".
