Why this band in particular? According to Cold Steel, the band members are “huge knife fans.” It also makes almost too much sense with a record label like Metal Blade.
“These custom engraved GI Tantos were made exclusively for Whitechapel to congratulate them on the launch of their new album ‘Mark of the Blade,’ which [dropped] June 24!”
When the band posted a picture of the custom blade on its Facebook page — which has more than 1 million followers — the image immediately went viral with fan after fan asking if the knives would be made available as a collector’s item.
So far, Cold Steel hasn’t said if it will be making any more of the blades.
