Description

Maestro Wu Bombshell Steel 3.5" Pocket/ Hunting Knife
Maestro Wu Bombshell Steel Knives - Since 1937. The knives themselves are amazing, but the story behind them is just as interesting. Maestro Wu's grandfather started the tradition of using bombshell steel in the early days of WWII, where the small (now) Taiwanese island of Kinmen had little steel for the production of knives and tools. He combed the beach in search of shrapnel, using it to forge high quality knives and tools with the forge that he carried on his back from village to village. On August 23, 1958, the Second Taiwan Straight Crisis started, with Mainland Chinese troops bombarding Kinmen for 2 weeks straight with over 400,000 shells. Taiwan retained control of the island, and for the next 18 years, propaganda shells were fired every other day. There was an estimated 1 million shells in all that were used, with the majority of them unexploded. Ironically, this has provided the very materials which have lasted well into its third generation of Maestro Wu knife making. So when you use your Maestro Wu Bombshell Steel Knife, you not only have an amazing knife, but an actual piece of history!
