Few battles in America's history were as harrowing, brutal and strategically important as the storied struggle for Iwo Jima in the Second World War's Pacific theater. The handsome Iwo Jima Beachhead Pocket Knife is a great tribute to the brave men and women who fought and died to capture the Japanese island. It's also a fantastic knife, boasting a dagger-like 3 3/4" stainless steel spear point blade with partial serrations and a rustic stonewashed finish. "1945; Pacific Front WW2" is finely etched above the blade fuller, mirrored by "Uncommon Valor Was A Common Virtue" etched below. With a gentle nudge of the handy thumbstud or flipper the blade opens as fast as Marines taking a beachhead, thanks to its advanced assisted opening mechanism. The iconic "raising of the flag" scene - immortalized in sculpture at the US Iwo Jima Memorial - is delicately carved into the beautiful wooden handle, as is "Iwo Jima" in stencil-style lettering. At 5" closed, the Beachhead Pocket Knife is well suited to everyday carry, especially with the convenient integrated pocket clip and lanyard ring. It also looks great in a military collection or display. You won't find better prices on fine pocket knives like this anywhere else, so get two - one for yourself and one to gift to a veteran, WWII history buff or military memorabilia collector. It’s a fantastic gift sure to be remembered and appreciated for years to come.
