We will continue to make every effort to gain smooth delivery on all models, but please understand and accept some unexpected delays of delivery on some models.
We have a service to keep you in waiting list and notify you as soon as it becomes available, if you email us with your name, email address and model numbers.

Important Notice about the latest situation of Hattori HD series Chef knives.
We regret for the continuous delivery problem we have been facing on the
Hattori HD series Damascus chef knives for last 2 years. Unfortunately,
we were unable to get enough supply to comply with the increasing demands
due to the existing workers' aging and the lack of skilled workers. As
the matter of fact, this is a serious problem for all the knife
manufacturers in Japan, and they are struggling every day to
maintain the both levels of the quality and production capacity..
Although we and Hattori have been making every effort to keep this best selling HD series at the reasonable prices, it came to the situation that we have to raise our prices. We are very sorry for this price increase, but hope it will help improve the current difficult situation in the long run.
Thank you very much for your understanding and continued support.
