Whether you’re a veteran or just a patriotic civilian, the brilliantly colored, limited edition "Forgotten Heroes" Scout Knife is a beautiful, useful tribute to once-sadly overlooked Vietnam Veterans. Proudly designed in the USA by legendary knife maker Kissing Crane, it also makes a versatile, ideal everyday pocket knife, with five handy tools in one compact folder. The razor sharp 2 1/2" drop point blade is forged from tough 440 stainless steel and features a striking Vietnam War-themed etching. "Forgotten Hero; Time Was Served, Time To Honor" is boldly emblazoned in all capital letters on the blade, beside an iconic Vietnam-era Huey helicopter and the dates "1954-1975." The stately folder also boasts a stainless steel can opener, bottle opener, awl and bail. Brilliant yellows, reds, greens and blacks adorn the bone handle scales, the vibrant hues arranged in a pattern that mirrors the hallowed Vietnam War Service Ribbon. Stone inlays and Kissing Crane's classic logo shield are set delicately into the bone handles, flanked by gleaming nickel silver bolsters. At 3 3/4" closed, this handy pocket knife is perfectly sized for everyday carry, while packing enough muscle to take care of practically any day-to-day cutting job. A collector's dream, each scout knife is laser serialized to denote your knife's place in this extremely limited run. Kissing Crane's Forgotten Heroes Scout Knife makes a terrific, heartfelt gift for the Vietnam Vets in your life. It's sure to serve as a touching reminder of fallen brothers and time served and is a great way for vets to proudly showcase their service. You don’t have to be a veteran, however, to appreciate the sacrifice so many brave men and women made in the jungles of Southeast Asia during the 16-year struggle against communist expansion. The Forgotten Heroes Pocket Knife is perfect for anyone - young and old, serviceman/woman or civilian. Best of all, it lets any Vietnam vet who sees it know his or her honorable service in the war is not forgotten and still appreciated by ordinary citizens like you.
