Charles Lightoller was born in 1874. His mother died of smallpox shortly after giving birth and his father left for New Zealand when Charles was 10, leaving him in the care of relatives. At 13, Charles signed onto the crew of a ship and began a life at sea. As the years passed, he obtained his various mates certificates and became an able officer who was offered a position on the ill-fated Titanic. The night that the ship sank, Lightoller was in charge of half of the lifeboats and made sure that the women and children in his vicinity were saved. Just as the Titanic went under, Lightoller jumped free and managed to grab hold of a collapsible lifeboat, surviving until morning.

After the Titanic, Lightoller went home to England and was awarded positions in the Royal Navy, eventually becoming a decorated officer due to war victories in World War I. He retired before World War II but when he heard of the disaster at Dunkirk, he volunteered to take his personal 35-seat watercraft and pilot it in an effort to save as many soldiers as possible. He made it there and was able to rescue 127 men. On the journey back to England, Lightoller evaded aircraft fire from enemy planes and was able to safely deliver those men home.

This small EDC knife has been named after Charles Lightoller as we love his story and felt a small everyday carry folding knife made of Damascus steel would be the perfect knife for someone with his story. This knife is a great utility knife for small duty work but don't underestimate this knife. The short Damascus blade is a great slicer. The beautiful Damascus bolster and rich Rosewood handle make this knife anything but a utility knife. The ambidextrous design means it can be used by either a right-handed or left-handed person. The stainless steel liner has the liner-lock built in so it doesn't add any unnecessary bulk to the knife. This incredibly unique handmade Damascus steel folder will be a prized knife in your collection or an incredible gift for the knife collector in your life.

Great Quality, Great Knife

Awesome knife!

Perfect EDC. Fits in coin pocket of jeans although I would recommend putting a small lanyard for easy removal if that’s your plan.

Rooms for improvement: tensioning to keep the blade closed but I understand it’s hard to put a lot of features in a small knife. I don’t feel you need a knob for assisting the blade open, I have no problem pushing it with just my thumb.

Thank you for making an outstanding knife and Thank Lightoller for his service and amazing life story.

Lightoller Damascus Folding Knife

Beautiful knife, great delivery from Forseti. Was looking for this exact knife and I am pleased that I purchased it here. Very pleased with Forseti and the knife. Never thought I would say this, but the knife is missing one thing. By the way, it comes in a great box along with knife oil and a great leather sheath. The whole presentation is very beautiful and classy. OK, so what’s missing? Needs a thumb stud. I’m looking for one, but this is a very specific item. If anyone has a suggestion for one, please let me know. Overall, product and company gets 5 stars ⭐️ and I will purchase again from them.

Love this knife! Compact design, nice grip, feels comfortable in your hand--very sharp blade! As a side for the ladies--it fits in the smallest of bags. You won't be disappointed if you buy it!
