Wood Grip Trench Knife (Knuckle Duster Knife)

Wood Grip Trench Knife (Knuckle Duster / Brass Knuckles Theater Knife)
This Trench knife is not based on any that already exist and are an original design, It is quite a unusual design, and can be used in many ways : stabbing hammer blow type strikes, slashing, basic any knife type holds and attacks.

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 flat palm rest, the weight is reasonably low due to the handle being made of Aluminium, it is actually 3 sections of 3mm aluminium that are glued and bolted together in about 8 places using hidden screws and threaded holes, The handle scales are 4mm pine wood.

These do not have spikes but the tops are triangular in shape (what I call - Jagged Edge type striking surfaces), this would do considerable damage in a fighting / War situation, it also features a removable blade, by just unscrewing the pommel nut, you could then use the handle as a stand alone knuckle duster.

The single edged curved blade also has a small guard above the handle similar to those of swords or 1918 u.s trench knives.
This is an o.k trench knife, not great, but still good for the collection, and still gets a conversation going, could have been finished a bit better,
Dimensions : Blade - 15cm -

Handle - 110mm wide, 80mm high, 12mm thick - Finger holes are approx - 23mm wide and 30mm high,
