Description

This is a vintage folding knife made in Seki, Japan by Seizo Imai in the 1980s. This is very similar to the Gerber Silver Knight and is of comparable quality. A very nice little pocket knife measuring 3" closed, featuring a 440 stainless blade and stainless bolster with hardwood handle. The blade is tight with 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 and is a difficult to find model.
