Description

This is a scarce vintage hunting trapper knife, made by Tak Fukuta in Seki, Japan circa 1990s and branded ZAK for domestic sale in Japan. This is identical to the A.G. Russell AG-102 which Tak Fukuta also made in 1997 for A.G. Russell. This 4 1/2" trapper is a very high quality, featuring polished AUS-8 blades with good snap, nickel silver bolsters, and Ebony handles. Great snap. Made for domestic Japanese market, blade marked "Zak" for Tak's son. 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, and Browning among others. After his passing, several vintage old stock models were found at his warehouse. This is one of these rare finds. Stock photos.
