Description

This knife was made in Seki, Japan circa 1980 by Tak Fukuta for Ka-Bar. Is unused but the fiber spacers and leather washers may have slight movement (please see third and fourth pictures). 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, Ka-Bar, and Browning among others. After his passing, several vintage unused old stock models were found at his warehouse. This knife is one of these rare finds.
