  Seizo Imai        Creating handmade replicas with his detailed and sensitive touch!
8/22/14 UP! Added 30 New Models 

Mr. Seizo Imai
(1946 - 2014)

3/27/14 Up!
Sad News! Mr. Seizo Imai has passed away in February at age of 68, after aggressively working to make fine knives for over 50 years. He loved knives and knifemaking. We've lost a great knifemaker!

8/22/14 Up! I have been helping Mrs. Imai to close the workshop in these months, and found some finished knives. Mrs. Imai wanted me to offer these knives to JKD customers who love fine Japanese quality knives. She said she will be happy to see his fine work continued to remain in your collection.

This is the final memorial Sale for Seizo Imai Custom Knives
       

Mr. Seizo Imai was involved with knife making at age of 17 when he joined his father-in-low's knife factory in Seki. After he took over the factory at 27, Mr. Imai and I have worked with Parker Cutlery in Chattanooga, TN to build a new factory in Seki, and have produced high quality Pocket knives under the brandname of "Parker-Imai" for about 20 years.

      With reputation of the 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 oneman custom knifemaker at the age of 47, and is turning out the detailed quality handmade knives with his sensitive personal touh for 21 years now.

* We are receiving many thanks letters from the folks who bought these replica models. Everyone says the detailed quality (fitting and finish) is outstanding and far exceeding of their expectations. This will be a fine collector's item.

* Here are some:

Hello,  just recieved my beautiful new folding knife made by Mr Imai. Please tell Mr Imai thank you, this knife is a top quality piece of art. Trust me I know a well made knife . I am a custom knife maker myself and a knife collector. Also I wish to thank you for having great quality knife makers on your web site. I look foward to see what new knives you feature in the future. Again a pleasure doing business with Mr Imai and you. 

Thank You

Joseph E Carr.

Hi, I received my Seizo Imai Remington Bullet SI310 knife with ivory handle a few days ago. I love it. It is a really beautiful knife. I am a knife collector and have quite a few knives which I really like, however this knife will be one of my favourites.

 Thanks for selling me such a beautiful knife. 

Regards

PETER KIMBER



Unlike other custom knifemakers, Mr. Imai does not attend any shows to sell his knives. He makes what he wants to make and sells to whom he likes. He does not chase trends, and stick to the traditional and old fashioned models and replicas.
