Handmade 1918 Trench Knife Handle



1918 Trench Knife Handle Copy - A handmade Copy of the famous World War One 1918 trench knife handles.
Newly designed remake knuckle duster trench knife handle, designed by myself and is directly copied from the old trench knives of World War One although with a few differences.
Although a trench knife handle this actually has no hole for a blade but could easily have a hole drilled and a blade inserted.
The differences from the originals are - No hand Guard at the top, and the originals had a flat palm rest.
The finger holes are made to fit the fingers in one way only and they get smaller as they go along, this makes for a very comfortable knuckle duster.
The last picture shows the original design I drew up, as you can see it came out virtually the same as the design.
The size is suited to Medium or Large hands.
Features oval finger holes and a mainly  flat palm rest that has a slight curve to it, and five Spikes, four over the fingers for punching, and a large Skull Crusher Spike Pommel used in a hammer blow move, each of these spikes have a groove cut into the bottom of them to make them look even better.
Weight is average due the size and it being Aluminum and in my opinion this weight is perfect, I feel with its size brass would be too heavy.
Features various makers marks on both sides, U.K 2010 = place of origin and date made, W.C = Maker, U.K 2010 is a tribute to the U.S 1918 that the originals had imprinted on them.
Another of my favourites (I have many, lol), and I have always wanted one of these, so that's another piece that I wanted for years added to my collection.
They are very comfortable and will look great on display, I hope you like them as much as I do.

Dimensions - 130mm wide, 80mm high, 28mm thick, Finger holes are 25mm wide and 30mm high approx.
Spikes are approx 15mm.

  2. Because of the flat palm rest, this is probably the most comfortable and most effective, when used in a self defense situation.

    An excellent design!

  5. I use to hear these stories that if you were captured on site w/ this weapon you would be shot on sight versus being interned in a P.O.W. camp. Wonder if there is any truth to that. Every bit of fact has some fiction. I guess...

  6. That had to do with the German Butcher Bayonets since the saw back blade on it would tend to pull out intestines and other organs when the blade was pulled out of your stomach... or at least that's the version I heard. I think that's the origin or that story.
    Sick knuckles btw, very nice work to be done by hand. I figured you had a 3-axis machine at first or forged/cast it with Aluminum.
