C-38 Gerstner® 38 Special Chest features solid polished brass hardware and felt lined drawers. An ideal sized portable chest for carrying your collections of knives and other treasures to shows, guns and cleaning items to the range, or personal valuables you need to transport.
This chest incorporates the traditional lid-pin system to lock the raised panel front lid into place when the top section is closed. Includes a leather top handle. Protect your valuables while being a beautiful focal point in any room’s décor with this classic American styled chest.
In true Gerstner quality, this chest has tongue and groove construction which provides strength, durability and visual appeal. Each part is meticulously hand fitted for the most exacting fit possible. Hardwoods naturally retain some moisture and can expand and contract slightly with seasonal temperatures – the Gerstner craftsmen have taken this into consideration and all parts are fitted accordingly to allow for this natural occurrence while taking into account regional and seasonal differences that may affect this process as well.
The top compartment and all five drawers are felt lined to provide extra protection for your possessions. The front panel is fitted with a sliding hinge so that it may be stowed beneath the bottom drawer on the open position. In the closed position, the front panel covers the drawers and can be locked to provide total security. Chest comes with 2 keys.
American Cherry has a light to medium fruitwood stain. This Gerstner chest features a very unique color and does not match what people usually perceive to be a "cherry" furniture color. All cherry is plain sawn, which is very stable and produces a wonderful flowing, curvy grain pattern. Cherry has small imperfections known as "pitting" that occurs naturally. At Gerstner, these imperfections are kept to a minimum, but they sometimes can appear as very small knots, or a series of darker swirls and spots. The American Cherry stain is light enough to highlight and accentuate the unique grain pattern. Smaller pieces of cherry will not show the flowing pattern as well as larger pieces. Your new cherry chest will darken over time.
Every Gerstner USA built chest has a hand rubbed lacquer finish. All chests go through 3 final finishing stages. At each stage, the lacquer finish is hand rubbed to give a lasting beauty and protection to the selected hardwoods. MADE IN USA.
