Talented Custom knifemaker, Master Seizo Imai in Seki has been creating fine detailed handmade Replica knives of famous R.W. Loveless, Jess Horn, Centofante, Ron Lake, Remington etc with 45 years of knifemaking experiences and skills.

His detailed and sensitive personal touch of quality custom made knives have been attracting many of serious knife collectors all over the world.

Sadly, Genius Custom Knife Craftsman Mr. Seizo Imai has passed away in the year 2014 at age of 68, after aggressively working to make fine knives for over 50 years. He loved knives and knifemaking.

I have helped his wife to close the workshop, and received some unfinished blades, handles and parts. After 8 years, I had these components assembled and finished by another Seki Custom Knifemaker, Fumio Inagaki who used to work for Master Imai. Mr. Inagaki recently came up in nice work at reasonable price.  Here are the Imai and Inagaki collaboration knives.
