This shadowbox was commissioned by a Navy Commander. The knife displayed inside was custom made from the tail rotor blade of a Vietnam era helicopter. It was passed down from this customers Father who was also a Navy pilot. This shadowbox is made from oak, stained Early American and finished with clear lacquer.

very nice…

first time I’ve seen a passport displayed in a shadow box… what’s the significance of that one?
