Master Watanabe
 Takayuki Watanabe 渡辺 隆之
He is 65 years old Custom Knifemaker in Mino, the neighbour city of Seki. He has been involved with knife making at age of 20, helping his father's business of the knife buffing and polishing. He has started making his own custom knives at 32 with a passion and yearning to Bob Loveless. In 1994, he had a chance to visit the Loveless's workshop in Riverside, California to show some of his knives. Bob was surprised with his work of high level craftsmanship, and asked him to stay and work together at his shop.

At that time, there was no name marking on his blades, so Bob has wondered why you don't put your name on such well made knives, and has kindly designed his logo on memo pad with his signature and words of "Vigilant", "Diligent" & "Capable". Upon returning to Japan, he has started engraving this logo. It was an unforgettable moment in his life to be able to meet with Bob Loveless so called "A God of Knife" at his young age.

Before becoming an individual custom knifemaker, master Imai was running factory for O.E.M production knives for Parker, Frost, Explorer, Valor, Fury, United etc. We found about 10 old leftovers at his workshop. It was the finished knife with blade marking of "Wenoka". Mr. Inagaki re-finished it to new mint condition. 3-1/4" Mirror polished 440 stainless steel blade with nail-nick, 4-1/2" Hand contoured Brown Linen Micarta handle with finger grooves and solid stainless sterel bolster, Back locking system with Brass liners

440 Stainless blade in 2.8mm thick, 84mm blade, 197mm overall , Weight 170g

This low priced knife can only be ordered together with IM-20 Folding Hunter or other knives. If you want this only, you can order 3pcs or more to save shipping cost
