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.

It was a present

Got this as a birthday present and the knife was nice, the packaging was a little off though. All of those small wood pieces would get into the crevices of the knife so I had to clean it off before I gifted it. Also, the wooden box has a loose side that is not going to last long being attached to it. It almost came off upon my 1st time opening it. Other than that, we'll see how the knife holds up with some use.

Love this knife

Usually my husband buys the knives but I saw this one and fell in love with it. It is small but sturdy easy to open and close which for me sometimes is a problem with folders. It is a little heavy but I like that as well so it doesn't slip out of your pocket unnoticed. Has a hole to tie a cordage through so you can tie it to your belt. And it is beautiful.

Customer service was excellent and shipping was super fast. Very surprised to receive such a little but heavy duty knife. Pictures and description does not do this knife the justice that it deserves. This is on proper knife!! Thanks, Davy

Small but Mighty

Super sharp and well made. Despite looking small and quirky it's the perfect EDC . It's eccentric with a modern/antique blend . Love the little leather sheath and wooden gift box too.

Why Forseti Steel?

Each Knife is Unique

All of our knives are made by hand and crafted one at a time. That is why no two knives are the same. The knife you receive will be similar to what you see on our site, but will be unique based on the natural materials used and individual craftsman that built the knife. 

Testimonials

Beautiful, true Damascus steel knives. They set the table with elegance and class.

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!
