Cutty Sark 1869 250


The Cutty Sark was launched in 1869 and was a tea clipper. It’s currently conserved at Greenwich. The hull of the Cutty Sark was clad in muntz metal which was composed of 60% copper and 40% zinc. The sheathing resisted attack by organisms that infested the hulls of wooden ships. The bolsters on our knife are made from the original muntz metal from the Cutty Sark. The grips are made from the finest teak stored by the Royal Navy for ships decking and on the decommissioning of the Royal Yacht Britannia the Navy had no further use for the teak. The knife comes in a wooden box of the type used to retail tea brought back by the tea clippers and it is roughly stamped ‘Cutty Sark’ on it’s exterior in much the same way a tea chest would be. We have only had a few pieces of this historic product made as we only have limited amounts of this metal and the knife is handmade.
