Description

These final knives that we are offering have blemishes. The handle may be dirty. Blade may have light bumpy feeling when opening and have staining that can mostly be wiped off with WD-40. The blade tip may be slightly sticking up when closed which can be remedied by lightly grinding away the tip of base of blade (please see last picture). When cleaned up these are very nice pocket knives.

This is a vintage folding knife made in Seki, Japan by Seizo Imai in the early 1980s. A nice little knife and very similar to the Buck 527 Treasury series. It features a wood handle with brass liners and stainless steel blade. 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.
