This is the All American Victory knife, so named to honor all those Americans who gave their time, energy and lives to liberate the
oppressed during World War two.
   The blade on the A.A.V.K. Is virtually identical to the old Green River. The only difference is a slightly humped back all along
the spine. 
   Each model 17 will come with (regardless of handle materials) a section of plexiglass from the cockpit of an F6F Grumman
Hellcat. The piece is from an  original push out cockpit panel circa 1943. Each knife will come with a photocopy of the original tag showing the part number of the push out panel. 
    Once I use up all of the original cockpit material, this knife will no longer be available. That is unless I can find something as equally historically significant to incorporate into the handle.
     Only available in hidden tang form

Blade length: about 4 5/8"

Handle length: about 4 1/2"

Base price $800.00
