"Most everybody who landed on Omaha Beach D-Day lost something. I, for one, lost most of my personal belongings..." Cpl. H.W. Crayton, on returning a bible to the parents of two brothers lost on Omaha Beach.

What an unbelievable find! These knives were actually used by British SEALs (SBS- Special Boat Service) during World War II! They have been in storage since 1945. We polish them up and put on new Fossil Ivory scales.(It takes a lot of ivory!) They are an instant collectors' item, and generate a tremendous amount of interest and excitement. Please note: These knives are collector's items and are not to be relied on in times of emergency aboard a boat.

We completely refurbish these knives.(There may be some "dings" left, so don't expect each to be absolutely pristine.) The blades are 1940's vintage stainless. In addition to the large 3 7/8 inch blade, there is a beautifully curved marlinspike, and a 2 3/4 inch can opener. There is also a handy screwdriver at one end. Even has a beryllium copper thong ring. Of course, it comes with a zippered collector's pouch, or leather belt sheath.

Included is a hand etched scrimshaw design and initials, name or date. Add a contrasting liner as an additional option.

A great gift! Perfect for an executive desk, as a letter opener, or addition to a knife collection. A phenomenal conversation piece!

We have only a few of these folders left, so please order early.

As an option, we will scrimshaw an etching of a ship of your choice, or your own boat (sail or power)on one side - Just email or snailmail us a picture.

Customize and personalize your knife by choosing from the options below!


Below are the available colors of our fossil ivories. Our high quality fossilized ivories have been reclaimed from the ground after sharing the earth for up to 30 millennia! Even after all this time, Fossil Ivory remains warm and sensuous organic ivory; it is not petrified. It has developed its beautiful colors by taking up minerals from the earth and these colors are impossible to match in any contemporary ivories by modern processes.
