SZ-34 Seizo Imai Yamame w/Mother of Pearl Handle

This small fixed blade knife is made by a Japanese famous custom knife maker Seizo Imai.

(To see other version click here.)

The handle is made of beautiful mother of pearl and the blade itself is made from the steel called “Cowry Y”– (a powdered metallurgical steel which is not available in the United States.)

This steel is capable of a higher hardness without being brittle. The resulting edge has extremely good edge retention. The blade has been hollow ground and mirror finished.

The knife comes with a belt clipped-leather sheath. This small fixed blade is ideal for small cutting chores in the field. (Full tang construction)

Seizo Imai is a so skillfull custom knife maker. We are worried about that he is not known in the world because he had never attended any exhibition like the Blade show and so on. But we do know that Mr. Seizo have been making a number of high grade custom knife replicas of Loveless, Jess Horn’s knives, and old Remington folders and so on for a long time in Seki City, Japan. So we do recommend Mr.Seizo Imai’s knives on Japam-Blades.com. He has been highly appreciated by knife enthusiasts in Japan.
