About the Maker

Imai, Seizo

Mr. Seizo Imai passed away in 2014, after working to make fine knives for over 50 years. Mr. Imai was involved with knife making at thebage of 17 when he joined his father-in-law's knife factory in Seki. After he took over the factory at 27, Mr. Imai worked with Parker Cutlery in Chattanooga, TN to build a new factory in Seki, and produced high quality Pocket knives under the brand name of "Parker-Imai" for about 20 years. With av reputation for quality knives at reasonable prices, the factory has expanded to finally 50 workers. This was a good success, but with increasing production and employees, Mr. Imai started worrying about the quality control. He has then decided to close the factory and became an one man custom knifemaker at the age of 47.
