Description

This is a stunning vintage knife made in Seki, Japan by Seizo Imai circa 1980. It features a brass handle with hardwood inlay and polished 440 stainless steel blade. Blade has a tight lockup and good snap. Seizo Imai was one Seki, Japan's finest craftsmen and most famous knifemakers of the modern era. His collaboration with Parker spanned nearly two decades. He made knives for Parker, Frost, Browning, Explorer, Compass, Condor, and many others, including his own brands Imax and Seizo Imai. His custom Loveless style knives are works of art. After his passing, several vintage old stock models were found at his warehouse. This is one of these rare finds.
