Description

This is a vintage 10997 USMC fighting style knife made by Tak Fukuta circa 1970s and produced for Valor. It features a stacked leather handle with black finish on metal butt/guard and blade. The knife measures 12.125" long overall with a 7" long blade that measures 1/8" thick. Comes with original wrapping with sheath in box. Tang stamped "Japan". 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 knife is one of these rare finds.
