Hattori Knife of the Year Limited Editions

In 1996 Hattori made a 25th Anniversary limited edition of 50 knives based on the HA-1W blade design. The following is 04/50 .






Hattori makes a limited edition version of one of his models each year either in numbers of 100 or 200. They are serial numbered boxed commemoratives and are picked up by collectors, mostly in Europe.
