Description

This is scarce Compass Industries boot knife Seki, Japan circa 1970s-1980s. Tak Fukuta made these for C.I. and today they are difficult to find. Unused by the consumer, but with light shelf wear mainly on flat area, may have staining, center-grind may be a little off center. Comes with black cordura nylon sheath (with rust on rivets). 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. Stock photos.
