(In-Stock) USS North Carolina Teak & Elk w/ Silver Inlays - Size 9.75/8mm Wide

The Story

Read about how we make our rings

When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941, they knew they had "awoken a sleeping giant," but they had no idea just how prepared this giant was for war. The USS North Carolina (BB-55) was built in 1940 and commissioned for service in April of 1941. She was the newest and fastest battleship which the US had ever created and would go on to lead every major naval offensive in WWII, earning 15 battle stars. Her wartime complement included 144 officers and 2,195 enlisted men of the finest generation America has ever known.

After her decommissioning in June of 1947 and subsequent restoration project years later, the Teak wood of her original decks were made available to the public in limited supply. We are very excited to offer a limited collection of rings from this story filled wood.

Colorado Elk

Our elk antler is sourced from natural sheds of Colorado Bull Elk. While I'm a fan of hunting and get out a few times during the season, I like the thought of these rings being connected with a grand creature still roaming that beautiful country.

Just like wood, each antler has unique characteristics that make every ring one of a kind. Some of our elk antler inlays will have a bit more color to them, while others are quite white. We try our best to find a good balance when crafting each ring by hand.

As a small business owner and craftsman, it is my honor to play a small role in the new "Made in USA" movement that is taking place across the nation and to do so by sharing part in our American heritage.
