(18 customer reviews)


In Japanese Yamato means “Heart”. The “Yamato Series” knives are forged with the traditional blacksmithing techniques of Japan. The black color of the handle and the blade is given in honor of the Shinobi (ninja) Warriors, dressed in black during the 17th century.
The blade is made of 71 layered Damascus Steel that provides both desired aesthetics and the development of an effective, well-balanced blade. The feeling and weight of the handle is made in such way to ensure perfect harmony.

    At this price tag, i had low expectations. however, hatori kitchen really caught me by surprise! excellent response times via instagram, great support and always available to answer my questions.
    Order received in Montreal in 2 weeks. Exceptional packaging. Pefrect damascus pattern. Sharp and with a great feel on the hand. Lightweight, yet durable. My new favorite knives. Would buy again.

  2. Faith

    I had the same old kitchen knives for seven years. They were dull and some a bit bent by the time I finally replaced them with these ones. I love using these new knives! They are beautiful with their damascus blades and their red handles! MAJESTIC!

    These knives are SHAAAAAAARP! Cut throught meat like butter! 4 stars for long shipping time to Gemarny, had to wait 3 weeks (1 week stuck at customs, this country never stops to dissapoint me)

    As a female chef it is not often that I have come across a knife that works well for me. I have very small hands and although I have been in the business for over 16 years I have yet to develop a knife callous. I typically use Japanese knives for this reason. The rounded handle is smooth and easy on my delicate hands (yes I am a chef with delicate hands) This knife set comes out of of the box razor Sharp and it is absolutely beautiful. I also love that it is so light. It’s like working with a light saber… No joke!

  8. PetrovGK

    Great knives with a great sharp blades. The damascus pattern is great, the knife looks more expensive than it is

  9. Bartolo ortiz

    Son muy buenos me gustan cortan muy suave

  10. Johnnybrew

    After years of swearing by German forged steel, I was nervous about switching to a fine-edged Japanese blade. It didn’t take long to get used to the switch and I doubt that I will purchase anything but damascus steel from here on out. The price is very reasonable and the knives are a great value. Shipping could be faster. Took about 20 days to arrive to Canada

    These knives are excellent and I’m glad I was able to add this one to my set. One piece of advice, if you want these knives to last as long as they’re supposed to and still be in excellent condition invest in a decent enough whetstone or sharpening system. Depending on your age the knife might outlast you.
    Arrived in New Zeland in 10 days with free shipping. Amazing!

  12. Steven B.

    Love my new knives and they are a great addition to my knife kit. I am a professional chef and they come in handy for any meal. I get a lot of compliments on the looks of these knives. I accidently washed them in a bucket of soap water and bleach with all my other knives. The bleach made it rust a little but i just wipped it down good with oil and it was good as new. So do not wash with bleach. Soap and water is good enough.

    Great value for 250 USD, the quality IS AMAZING.

    4 stars because shipping was slower than expected, took 10 days to arrive to Montana

  13. Makalintal

    Amazed by these knives. By far the most VFM kitchen knife I have ever purchased! SHARP!!!!

    Free shipping to Philippines was an awesome feature. Arrived to my home in less than 2 weeks. Would buy again & again

  14. Manolo J.

    Ive been cooking professionally for 20 yrs ive had many knives these are wonderful very sharp and well balanced fit great in the hand and look beautiful as well.
    Beautiful knives, all eyes are on your every move. They cut with absolute grace and the handles complement the Damascus beautifully.

    Very happy that I bought that set.

  15. 3boys

    I bought these knives to leave on our trailer, but after using we decided to put our Wusthof knives out there and keep these for our everyday use. These have a comfortable handle, and are extremely sharp. You can tell that they are well made, and will last a long time. free shipping took about 10 days to Singapore

  16. Andrew E.

    The best knife set i have ever got my hands on! free shipping to philippines was amazing, got my knives in about 15 days after ordering.

    Definately a knife set that will last a lifetime. Hatori kitchen support was kind enough to help me on instagram choose the proper knife set

    A great knife! Excellent workmanship and exceptional steel. They’re worth the cost if you are a perfectionist and love to cook. I don’t get dinner invitations often, but I have never been in a kitchen that had knives with edges slightly better than ones used to cut butter. They save me from hours of drudgery preparing meals. I’d recommend getting Japanese water stones to sharpen them with. Hatori shipped them directly to my house in Quezon City at no extra cost! Will definately get another knife set from this brand

– Avoid cutting bones (except fish bones) and hitting the blade on hard surfaces. Preferably use a plastic or wooden cutting board.

– Dry the knife as soon as you wash it. Do not place the knife in a dishwasher.

– In order to sharpen the blade the use of a sharpening stone is suggested. Any other tools could damage the blade.

– To retain the edge of the knife make sure to hone the knife regularly. During normal use your knife edge may roll over at some point. Honing will not remove steel but will refine the edge of the knife.

VG-10 is a cutlery grade stainless steel produced in Japan. The name stands for V Gold 10 ("gold" meaning quality), or sometimes V-Kin-10 (V金10号) (kin means "gold" in Japanese). The indication 'Cobalt steel' is sometimes used too, but that could of course also designate another steel type with Cobalt. Hitachi is the manufacturer of VG10 steel, but often the name of the Takefu factory is used, that markets the steel in laminated format.

Stainless VG10 Steel holds its edge more than any other steel used to manufacture kitchen knives. The major advantage is ability to withstand rust. VG10 also provides the ability to have the Damascus pattern created in the blade during temperament. For the above reasons VG10 is the most popular steel in the knife manufacturing industry.

The Benefits

- High Hardness on the blade
- Very light and thin blade for precision cutting
- Anti-rust composition
- Long lasting
- Damascus pattern aesthetics


1% carbon
1% molybednum
15% chromium
0.2% vanadium

The Sharpening

Precision sharpening is ensured with laser technology.
The blades are then hand-sharpened using whetstones.
Finally every knife is carefully inspected before it is shipped to our customers.

Pakka wood, also sold as compreg, is an engineered wood/plastic composite material commonly used in knife handles and other objects that see rough wear. It resembles conventional wood, while maintaining its antibacterial characteristic which is vital for professional knives.

The cylindrical shape of the handle allows versatile cutting strokes.
