Description:

"There is a small window of relatively good weather." Supreme Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower received these words from his chief meteorologist, advising him of weather conditions during the largest accumulation of force the Germans would encounter during World War II. Nearly 3 million men awaited is order. On Monday, June 6th, 1944, at 0415 hrs. Ike said, "Let's go," and the Battle of Normandy, "D-Day", became one of the most memorable days in world history.

The Dwight D. Eisenhower knife is patterned after the timeless and famed model of the GI M3, issued to many GI's who fought on D-Day. The wood handle is taken from a green ash tree descendent that shaded Dwight D. Eisenhower's home in Denison, TX. The blade is hand-forged 420 high carbon steel with brass bolsters. The Engraving will read, "Normandy, 1944. 'Let's go'." Certificate of authenticity. 1,944 knives will be made to honor the year of the D-Day invasion.
