Ballistic Knuckle Duster Trench Knife






Ballistic Knuckle Duster Trench Knife - A spring powered ballistic trench knife (knuckle duster knife)
A reproduction of the famous Spetznaz ballistic knife or pilum knife, this one was designed by a friend from the Internet as part of a competition.
A ballistic knife is a specialised combat knife with a detachable gas or spring-propelled blade that can be fired to a distance of several feet by pressing a trigger or switch on the handle.
They be can used as a standard fighting knife, and you can shoot the blade out too, making it similar to being able to throw a knife, but easier, because no skill is involved, this designs incorporates a knuckle duster / brass knuckles meaning it can still be used after firering the blade
The size for this one is medium to large hands, however it would probably be uncomfortable if used by people with smalls hands due to its size
Features oblong finger holes and a flat / tube palm rest, trigger and O-ring / split pin safety, also features four spikes for striking.
The blade is steel and has its own small handle that is contained in the knuckle handle, although the blade is not razor sharp it is still sharpened on both sides and was shaped into a dagger style blade and would still be capable of stabbing, the handle is copper tubing, and the knuckle guard and trigger are aluminium, the trigger is spring loaded and holds the blade in place until pressed.
Weight is average due to size and it being made of Aluminium.
Features no makers mark.

This is again one of my favourite trench knives and was the only Ballistic Spring Powered Trench Knife I've seen, sadly this particular one has now been destroyed, the beautiful style and unique look make it a really nice piece, great for display and as a talking point, but could have been used in a combat situation.

Dimensions - 130mm wide (handle only), 70mm high (handle only), 12mm thick, Finger holes are 22mm wide and 30mm high.
Blade is 90mm -  Overall length is 220mm Approx.
