Lum Design Knives by Seki-Cut
In 1999, I was involved with the Seki
Cutlery Association's project (Seki-Cut brand) to
develop new line of knives designed by the world
renowned knife designers and manufactured by the
selected Seki knifemakers.
One of the designers we chose was Bob
Lum, and I have personally worked with Bob

series Tactical Folders produced by
Suetake, and "Hunter" series Fixed blade knives
produced by Hattori.
I have enjoyed working with him and thank for his
fine work. Jemmy
