Description

This is an original vintage butterfly knife, made by Tak Fukuta circa 1980s in Seki, Japan for Whitby & Co. We recently acquired this model from the Fukuta factory archives in Seki, Japan. It features a stainless steel blade, stainless handle with brass liner and brass latch (latch rotation is stiff). Knife only, no box. Extremely difficult to find today.

Tak Fukuta was the first Japanese member of the American Knife Maker's Guild, and apprentice to Bob Loveless. He hand crafted fine quality knives that impressed his mentor. Over the years, his factory in Seki, Japan also produced knives for Parker, Valor, Gutmann, Explorer, Frost, and Browning among others. After his passing, several vintage old stock models were found at his warehouse. This is one of these rare finds.
