It features an ebony hardwood handle, brass bolsters and liners with polished blade. Blade has a tight lockup and good snap. Has a lockback main blade and slipjoint bird hook. Seizo Imai was one Seki, Japan's finest craftsmen and most famous knifemakers of the modern era. His collaboration with Parker spanned nearly two decades. He made knives for Parker, Frost, Browning, Explorer, Compass, Condor, and many others, including his own brands Imax and Seizo Imai. His custom Loveless style knives are works of art.
