Every ship needs an Executive Officer, and every XO (i.e. Executive Officer knife) needs handles crafted from salvaged ship parts. The teak handles on these XOs were made from reclaimed BB-55 decking. BB-55 (aka Battleship USS-North Carolina) is a WWII era battleship.
The XO comes with two finish options - Belt Finished for a classic look or Parkerized to turn the blade black and protect the tool steel from corrosion. Two great looks, one great knife.
Steel: O1 Tool
Finish: Belt or Parkerized
Overall Length: 8.5 inches
Blade Length: 3.5 inches
The XO and other Battleship Blades will be available at the NC State Fair while supplies last.
Hope to see you there -Village of Yesteryear, NC State Fair, Raleigh NC, October 12-22.
