These one-of-a-kind art objects feature stainless steel blades with carved handles of a variety of woods and natural materials. The knives are available in several nautical styles, including rigging knives, sailor’s knives, and survival knives. To see photos of the knives, visit www.seaportstore.com.

In addition to knives, the Ship’s Store at the Historical Seaport offers sweatshirts, t-shirts and hats with screen-printed or appliquéd images of Lady Washington and Hawaiian Chieftain. The Ship’s Store also features special gift items, holiday ornaments, and stocking stuffers.
