This is scarce Compass Industries boot knife from Seki, Japan circa 1980. Tak Fukuta made these for C.I. and today they are difficult to find. Similar to the Ka-Bar 2750, also made by Fukuta at same time period. Has a stainless steel blade with textured composite handle. Unused by the consumer, but with shelf wear/aging. Comes with boot clip sheath. 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.
