Kill Devil Hills Knife 20 LE
Blade: Crafted of three layers of steel using the Sanmi process, the 6-inch blade showcases steel taken from the hull of the Battleship North Carolina on both outside surfaces, with a carbon core between. The process delivers a look similar to Damascus steel but enables the Ship's steel to be on full display, highlighting its own distinguishable pattern with alloy banding. Handle: Sourced from the deck of the Battleship, the teak composing the 5 1/2 inch handle has been sand-blasted to bring out the grain, creating a weathered look evocative of the Ship's original period. This knife is hand forged from knifesmith Steve Watkins of Iron Man Forge and comes with a hand made leather sheath. This collectible is an opportunity to own one of a limited run of bespoke knives made of and for the Battleship North Carolina. It offers a piece of American military history in a unique form that can be treasured and shared through the years. Each piece is unique, one of a kind, and is heirloom quality. This is for the 2020 Limited Edition of 30 knives and they come with a Certificate of Authenticity and Care Instructions.
