LIMITED EDITION, AVAILABLE 5 JUNE 2019 at 9am Arizona TimeNORMANDY 44 Commemorates the 75th anniversary of D-Day and Operation Overlord. For this release we've designed numerous custom logos and pieces of artwork, compiled several pieces of printed material, and commissioned several custom "extras". Each pen includes specific laser marking that is meant to highlight a specific element of the Allied offensive on D-Day and throughout Operation Overlord.
NORMANDY 44 “Airborne” EDK is hard tumbled then matte anodized in olive green with matte black screws and clip, and a black coated click mechanism. The custom marking starts with the clip which has been laser marked “NORMANDY 44” in a font similar to WWII era military fonts. On one side of the pen we’ve utilized tattered invasion stripes as an homage to the USAAF troop carrier command planes that flew through heavy enemy fire with thousands of paratroopers aboard. Bracketing the invasion stripes are the words “Albany” and “Boston” which are the names of the drop zones where paratroopers from the 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions landed. Opposite this mark is a custom logo that combines the USAAF roundel star with the United States Army Airborne wings.
The NORMANDY 44 pens includes a custom designed patch, K Shield Logo pouch, custom sticker sheet, and a NORMANDY 44 Top Secret Dossier of printed material. Each pen is designed and machined, by us, here in the USA.
