The supposed last words of Julius Caesar, “Et tu Brute,” (when translated from Latin: "you too, Brutus?") were directed towards his faithless friend Marcus Brutus at the moment of Caesar’s assassination. These famous last words were entirely fabricated by William Shakespeare, for his play. The phrase as we know it is derived from the findings of Roman historian Suetonius, who reported that others have claimed Caesar's last words were the Greek phrase "καὶ σὺ, τέκνον," transliterated as "Kai su, teknon?", which means "You too, child?" or "You too, young man?”. We’ve named this weapon after the more accurate phrase, while also following the tradition set by Shakespeare in giving Caesar’s last words a contemporary twist.
The Et Tu Babe knife features a petite column, sculpted from shimmery marbled pearl resin, which finishes off a slim hollow ground blade. Satin finished, hardened stainless steel blade and a brass finger guard. Each handle is marbled and cast by hand for a one-of-kind finish.
