Handmade Dagger Trench Knife

Black Handle Double Edged Trench Knife / Knuckle Duster Knife -
This Trench knife is based on those from World War One, It is quite a traditional design, and works better when used in stabbing hammer blow type strike but can be used either way,
The size will fit medium hands, but will just about fit large hands with a bit of a squeeze.
Features Oval finger holes and a comfortable curved palm rest, the weight is reasonably low due to the handle being made of Aluminium, it is actually 4 sections of  3mm aluminium that are glued and bolted together in about 8 places using hidden screws and threaded holes.
These do not have spikes but the tops are curved to a point, this would do considerable damage in a fighting / War situation, it also features a 25mm steel skull crusher pommel.
The skull crusher pommel can be removed and then you can take out the blade, you could then use the handle as a stand alone knuckle duster.
The double edged blade also has a small guard above the handle similar to those of swords or 1918 u.s trench knives.
It also has a leather Sheath.
This was the first trench knife I had ever owned and I am very happy with it, they are a great piece for my collection.

Dimensions :
Blade - 15.5cm  -
Handle - 110mm wide, 80mm high, 12mm thick - Finger holes are approx - 23mm wide and 30mm high, Skull Crusher Spike is approx - 25mm

Homemade Solid Brass Knuckle Duster

New Solid Brass Knuckle Duster
New Solid Brass Knuckle Duster - This is my new solid brass knuckle duster, it is also one of my favourite designs and I have wanted a solid brass version of this for a long time, I used to have Aluminium versions that were sprayed Gold but it was not the same.
The size for this one is Medium to Large but will fit most hands, features Oval finger holes and a curved palm rest, The weight is considerable too, twice that of aluminium that is nearly two times as thick (look below for actual weight.)It is imprinted with WC-10 (which is a makers mark and year).
They are very comfortable, but after being used to aluminium for so long they feel very heavy, although Knuckle dusters have been made from Brass for hundreds of years, so people must think the weight is reasonable.
I think a perfect weight would be a difference between the two - Aluminium and brass.

Weight of Brass as opposed to Aluminium -

Aluminium  (featured in pic above) - 175g or 6.1oz @ 16mm
Brass - 310g or 10.9oz @ 10mm

Dimensions - 123mm wide,78mm high, 10mm thick, Finger holes are approx - 23mm wide and 30mm high.
