Gods of Olympus – Athena

SK Customs presents “Athena,” the fourth creation in the Gods of Olympus engraver series. As a guaranteed collector’s item, this limited-edition production of only 200 engraver model Smith & Wesson’s were built for SK Customs on a Full Size 1911 chambered in 45 ACP.

Athena, a member of the twelve Olympians and the Greek goddess of wisdom, war and reason, was known for her handicraft. Daughter to Zeus, Athena was regarded as the patron and protectress of various cities across Greece, particularly the city of Athens, from which she received her name.

The Parthenon on the Acropolis of Athens, which is symbolized by owls, olive trees and snakes, all having connotation to her existence, is dedicated to her. 

Using a proprietary, highly reflective conversion technique on the firearm, SK Customs brings out multi-tones of beautiful reflective colors exposed from the steel. Using 24K gold to highlight the attributes of Athena and an emerald front sight set this limited edition apart.

The serrations are deeply etched to symbolize her spear and entwined with one of her symbols associated with death and destruction, the snake.

After competing with Poseidon, and gaining possession of Athens, Athena planted the first olive tree which is reflected on top of the slide with exposed roots and rising sun.

The slide flats symbolize Athena’s dominances with war, her connection with owls and shield with Medusa’s head to enforce her power of victory in warfare.

The grips are made of Kirinite® and have been engraved and black filled with the Greek Key border, featuring Athena and one of her owls taking flight. The left side of the gun highlights Athena at Mount Olympus with a battle below.

Each collector of Athena will receive a special issued commemorative 1-oz high relief silver coin that features the marks of the Bank of Greece in Athens, the year of production, and a depiction of Goddess Athena in battle with her symbols. Each coin comes in a protective case, which is set inside an elegant black velvet coin box stamped in silver with the “Gods of Olympus- Athena.”
