The American Joe Poster: True red, white and blue
In 2013 we introduced the “American Joe”. The American Joe is an art gun crossing the rubicon between firearms and art. Cabot commissioned rock star designer Joe Faris to design the art which is engraved on the American Joe. We asked Joe to design art for a 1911 which represents Detroit and Americana. This gun is a symbol of “American exceptionalism” at it’s finest. The tire tread “USA” represents the speed of the bullet leaving barrel as well as the Detroit Automotive innovative spirit which is at the heart of America. The wings embody a burst of Freedom as the tire peels out shifting into a Web pattern that is traditionally Tattoo on the elbow and is fitting as the pattern on the slide. (the elbow of the gun) A spiders web in nature is one of the most complex patterns and is broken-down every day but built back up every night. In America, we continue to build just as our forefathers did for generations. The American Flag hand grip represents the strength of this country as the hand wraps around the magazine with fortitude and resilience. This gun is built purely in America and shaped out of the finest block of steel. The American Joe is a true Red, White and Blue representation of the Glory, Romance and Legend of the 1911.
