This is a knife blade blank made by Tak Fukuta in Seki, Japan for Rigid circa 1980s. It measures 9.75" long overall and the blade measures 4.5" long. Please note that this one is missing the tang stamp. This knife when completed was originally made with an etched damascus look finish. 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.
