Hand Made Push Dagger / Punch Knife

Yellow handled handmade Push Dagger / Punch Knife - push dagger, alternately known as: push knife, gimlet knife, fist knife, Stoßdolch, push dirk, or T-handled knife is a short-bladed dagger with a "T" handle designed to be grasped in the hand so that the blade protrudes from the front of one's fist, typically between the 2nd and 3rd finger. Over the centuries, the push dagger has gone up and down in popularity as a close-combat weapon for civilians and selected military forces.
The size for this one is small to medium or even large hands, Features a large T-handle with curved palm rest just big enough for all four fingers.
The blade is double edged and "live", but not razor sharp and made from tool steel.
Weight is average due to size, features a nylon plastic lined sheath.
Features no makers mark but was made by the person who makes most of my other weapons.
This is a standard push dagger design, very sturdy, and would make a formidable self defense fighting weapon, also makes a great display piece and talking point.

Dimensions - 80mm wide (handle), 140mm high (overall), 15mm thick (handle), 75mm (blade)

  1. I've always liked Push Daggers, but surprisingly never had one!
    I might have to get the old angle grinder out :-)
