Details

The handle on a ship's wheel with extra grooves at its tip is called the kingspoke. The grooves are there so that the helmsman can feel them while steering the ship in the dark. It's also used to determine the exact position of the rudder—when the king spoke points straight upward the rudder is believed to be dead straight to the hull. It also happens to be the name of the official park store at San Francisco Maritime National Historical Park.

This nifty keychain features a free spinning ships wheel connected to a badge featuring the parks name.

  • Solid metal construction
