About Maestro Wu Bombshell Steel Knives

During World War II, there was a serious lack of resources on the then Japanese occupied Kinmen island. Steel was particularly hard to come by, so Maestro Wu's father began to collect the artillery that had been dropped by the U.S. and the Allied Air Force and used the shells to make knives.

Later, Kinmen also suffered artillery bombardment from Communist Mainland China. During the Second Taiwan Straight Crisis, the August 23, 1958 Artillery Battle was the severest battle during that period. The shelling left millions of shells that became an abundant source of material for the production of knives. Maestro Wu started to collect the shells from all over Kinmen Island, and earned his reputation by forging the artillery shells into fine cutlery.
