Description: In the pre-Revolutionary times, Great Britain sought to prevent colonial rebellion by forbidding colonists to meet privately. To be found meeting in secret was punishable by death. In response, each of the thirteen colonies selected a special tree, called a liberty tree, and designated it as their secret meeting place. Under the haven of Liberty Trees, leading colonists devised plans of rebellion against British control.

The wood handle of the Liberty Tree knife is carved from the last surviving Liberty Tree. This 400-year old tulip poplar stood on the grounds of St. Johns College in Annapolis, Maryland. Having outlived its species by 100 years, the tree witnessed the most significant moments leading to the development of the United States. The 9" blade of this special knife is hand-forged steel with brass bolsters and two brass stars set in the 5" long handle. It is engraved with "The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America," and has a certificate of authenticity. Only 1,776 — to honor the year of America's declaration of liberty — will be produced.
