Details
  • Extraordinary 320-layer Damascus steel from the armor plates of the capsized German battleship Tirpitz.
  • This non-stainless, high-alloy steel was recovered by a Norwegian and German company in 1948-57 at the wreckage site. It is being used for scientific purposes as well as for space travel.
  • The Damascus steel for this knife was manufactured by Markus Balbach, a renown German blacksmith, and was folded into 320 layers by using an long-established forge welding method.
  • The ferrules are made of nickel silver, lending a noble touch to the knife's appearance.
  • The handle is made of mammoth tusk, which provides high quality, carvable ivory and displays a uniquely characteristic cross-hatching pattern.
  • The sheath is made of traditionally-crafted hand-stitched saddle leather. Solely plant-based substances are used during the tanning process.
  • Each knife is unique and comes with its own serial number and is delivered with a certificate of authenticity for the Tirpitz steel.
