32GB HMS Victory USB Key by back2root 32GB HMS Victory USB Key by back2root
This is a particularly special key, it is my first USB key made from historic wood.

I hand carved the chassis out of oak taken from the HMS Victory ship. I have integrated a high quality 32GB USB stick. It features a unique mechanical movement created from individual watch parts salvaged from irreparable movements. A red LED light has been incorporated to the design, which flashes when in use. A brass face plate has been added to surround the USB connector. The key comes complete with a lid hand carved to represent the bow of the ship.

The keys comes in custom packaging with a paper provenance as proof of authenticity as shown in the bottom photo. I also will be including an oxidized iron nail I removed from the original wood which is featured in the top photo next to the USB key.

This item will soon be available for purchase.

That is very very cool. My brother is a serious naval history buff, Especially for things of the Royal Navy and the Royal Canadian Navy. If these aren't too far out of my price range, I may have to buy him one for next Christmas.
