Gaston (aka Gaston J. Glock Style LP) is now selling two knives that I find a bit odd. Â One is from tank barrels, while the second is from part of the Nazi war machine.
The Leopard Battle Tank knife is a fixed blade knife made from the steel of German tank barrels. Â These knives use parts of the barrels of the old Leopard 1 A3 battle tank, and add a maple root handle.
According to Gaston, the blades are made from “LEO-Damast” which they describe as a 320-layer Damascus steel. Â I’m not an expert on knives (perhaps Randall, M@ and others can chime in), but do tank barrels make for good blades? Â I hope so; retail price on this knife is $1390.
Another knife introduced by Gaston is the Battleship Tirpitz hunting knife. Â The blade on this knife is made of steel from the German World War II ship that was destroyed at great cost by the Allied forces.
