 Remarks about Hattori HD Series    

   You might see some HD numbered Damascus knives are being sold with other blade marking and box. Please note that JCK has originally named it HD Series that stands for Hattori Damascus Series. In fact, Mastercraftsman, Mr.Hattori personally inspects each knife very carefully, and re-work wherever necessary to meet with Hattori's quality standard. Only the knives that have passed his quality standard will be hand engraved with his name logo. When you see his name on the blade and box, it is your assurance of genuine Hattori quality.  Notice to Hattori HD series customers.

Important Notice about the delivery situation on Hattori HD Series
Unfortunately, we now have a delivery problem, due to the slow and limited production with the extra works at Hattori. Currently, many of Hattori HD knives have been sold out, and require longer lead time to get them back in stock.
  We really regret there are still some models that are uncertain of the next available dates, once sold out.
  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.
  We apologize again for the difficult delivery situation of Hattori HD knives.
  Thank you very much for your attention and patience in advance.

UP!! May 22nd, 2015
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.
