Well more power to you. There’s no shortage of purveyors out there who’ll be only too happy to make your acquaintance. And one of them is Gaston J. Glock style. They’ve just announced four new knives featuring Damascus steel just in time for this weekend’s Blade Show and we can’t wait to see of RF can manage to come home without one . . .

SMYRNA, GA (May 2013) –  GASTON J. GLOCK style LP, the purveyors of fine quality hunting and shooting sports apparel and accessories, is unveiling four new knives – three pocket knives and one hunting knife – at the 2013 Blade Show & International Cutlery Fair, held at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, Georgia May 31st through June 2nd, 2013 at Booth 164. In addition, the company will be offering 10% off all GASTON J. GLOCK style LP brand knives purchased during the show and through June 10th in their online store.

The  G3 Pocket Knife (above) and  Tirpitz Pocket Knife were modeled and manufactured based on drawings and sample books that date back to 1932. These original designs were discovered at a 175 year old company located in Solingen, Germany. To make these particular knives, special tools from that era had to be reproduced and experienced blacksmiths were needed to manufacture these knives using the old techniques.

The blade of the  G3 Pocket Knife is made from recycled non-stainless steel from the historic German G3 Assault rifle barrels. This steel is used in the 320 layer Wave Damascus hand crafted by one of the best German blacksmiths. The body of the knife is composed of two stamped brass liners, each having welded pins made of nickel silver, a back spring, a guard attached to the back spring and a connecting piece, as well as the blade. The unlocking of the blade occurs via a sophisticated old mechanism, which is triggered by the guard. The knife scales are made from stabilized bog oaks, a wood which has been preserved over thousands of years in Danish bogs. MSRP is $790.00.

The blade of the Tirpitz Pocket Knife is made from the recycled non-stainless steel of the historic German Battleship Tirpitz, which was salvaged by a Norwegian and German company.

The body of the knife is composed of two stamped brass liners, each having welded pins made of nickel silver, a back spring, a guard attached to the back spring and a connecting piece, as well as the blade. The knife scales are made from Mammoth teeth and are carefully attached to the knife skeleton. MSRP is $590.00.

The blade of the Noble Tirpitz Pocket Knife is made of recycled non-stainless steel from the armor plates of the German Battleship Tirpitz. This steel is used in the 320 layer Wild Damascus hand crafted by one of the best German blacksmiths. This elegant pocket knife is completed using high quality materials, assembled and handcrafted by experienced blacksmiths and is perfect to have on hand when hunting wild boars.

  1. I wanted a G3 Pocket Knife until I saw the price! I think I will purchase a Glock instead!

    In all seriousness, do these have some value that will be retained over the years?

    • If you are going to invest in collectible knives first familiarize yourself with the collector’s market. Just like with stocks you need to become familiar with who and how you entrust your money.

      • Agreed, I understand that. I have been investing in S&W Revolvers for some time and I know them very well.

        I know nothing about knives and I was asking a general question not that I was going to leap out and purchase the knives in this post.

        • I think that the historic nature of their blades will give these knives intrinsic collectors value. There is only so much Nazi Battleship Armor available 🙂

          I have a friend who bought one of the Tirpitz knives. He is Jewish, so it is kind of the modern-day equivalent of the Vikings drinking from the skulls of the their vanquished enemies.

    • I stripped out the email and website info, but am going to leave this here. I get at least a half dozen letters like this via email.

      Anyone want to go into business importing Pakistani car-bumper knives?
