SK Customs is proud to introduce “ZEUS,” the second creation in the Gods of Olympus Engraver Series collection.
This guaranteed collector’s item will be a limited production run of 200. Based on the well-known Smith & Wesson Full Size 1911 E-Series (45 ACP), this custom creation was conceived to pay homage to Zeus, the Greek God of the Sky, Ruler, Protector, and Father of all Gods and Humans. Zeus was considered the King of Mount Olympus where he ruled the Olympian World.
The slide has a proprietary conversion coating that results in a highly reflective Sky-Blue background in the engraved areas behind the selectively gold and copper-plated artwork.
The frame flats and slide have been polished to a satin finish. To tie the whole design together, the filled Greek key meander and grip art adorn the Pearl grips and select hardware has been plated in 24kt Gold and Nickel creating a stunning overall look. Rounding out this creation is the addition of a new Novak front sights with a strikingly authentic center set Yellow Diamond further embodying grandeur of Zeus and the power of his Thunderbolt.
To immortalize some of Zeus’s absolute powers the slide, frame and grips feature cloud engraved scroll to represent his rule of the Sky and Weather.
Picturesque artwork on the sides of the slide intensifies visual depictions of Zeus directing Lighting, Thunder, Rain and Strong Winds with his Thunderbolts as a mighty force of punishment. Zeus is portrayed in 24 KT Gold-plating with his companion Eagle (Aetos Dios) soaring steadfast selectively Copper-Plated. Zeus was known to have transformed into a Bull which is reflective on the rear serration. Zeus’s primary form of protection was his Aegis, a shield which displayed the head of Gorgon (sister of Medusa) which made a forbidding roar during battled.
