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 42th 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-42 Urbane Hunters come with the Feather wood handle. Hattori always carefully selects the handle material. He has selected the 5 different colors of Jute Micarta Material for the handles, because of its good strength, durability, and unique natural texture and produced only 10 pieces with serial numbers engraved on the bolster, 傘 SAN etching on the blade and Presentation box. (2Pcs each for the per handle) The Serial No. comes with "01/02".
