Description

This is a vintage Japanese crafted pocket knife made in Seki, Japan by Seizo Imai for Whitby circa 1980. It measures 3.5" closed and features a smooth bone handle and stainless steel blade. The blade has nice lockup and good snap. One liner is away from lockbar on top edge, please see last picture. 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.
