RMS Titanic Premium 401 Rivet.
The 401 Rivet is an exact reproduction of the rivets used to fasten the
Titanic‘s massive hull plates to her frames, precise in every dimension
and characteristic. The 401 Rivet is 3 3/4? long, with a shank diameter
of 1? and head diameter of 1 3/4?. Each one weighs just over 1 pound.
Every effort has been made to ensure that these rivets are as accurate
as possible: the dimensions were provided by Harland and Wolff,
confirmed by Mark Chinrside, who is recognized world-wide as one of
today’s premier authorities on the engineering of the Olympic-class
ships; the metal composition was determined by a metallurgical analysis
done in 1998 on rivets recovered from the wreck of the Titanic–the
metal itself is AISI 1018 iron.
Now you have the opportunity to own a 401 Rivet.
The Premium Set includes the 401 Rivet with RMS Titanic No.401
stamped on the end of the rivet, plus a hand-finished solid mahogany
display stand bearing a brass plaque along with the legend
“RMS Titanic No. 401? and an illustrated leaflet describing the history
of the rivets used in building steamships, in particular the Olympic-class
ships, as well as detailed information of the process by which the 401
Rivet is made.
“As close as you will ever get to holding a piece of the Titanic in your hand….”
The RMS Titanic 401 Premium Rivet Set will be shipped direct from
our warehouse on the shores of Belfast Lough in County Down where the
Titanic sailed on her Maiden Voyage.
