Associate Members - Suppliers of Products and Services

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member, contact Dr. William Cogar at executivedirector@hnsa.org

Our Mission: To help further the historical education of our naval military accomplishments, and might through both World Wars, and into today’s Navy.

Our Goal: To use the cutlery collector platform to help raise funds for naval museums, and their local Wounded Warrior Projects. We are making knives using steel forged from various Historical Naval ships. The Battleship Texas is the Flagship of the series. We will be doing knives out of steel from Battleships, Aircraft Carriers, and Submarines. There will be (5) from each series.

There are handmade knives made of Damascus forged from the ships steel. There will also be a production pocket knife made from the same Damascus from the ships steel, with different types of handle material. Some ships may include pieces of decking with knife display.

This is a great opportunity to have something made from these Historical Ships you can pass down to future generations. We are proud to pioneer this project to help fund the maintenance of these historic ships, and to help raise money for local Wounded Warrior Projects.
