Folding Trench Knife Knuckle Duster

Folding Trench Knife (Knuckle Duster / Brass Knuckles Folding Theatre Knife)
This Trench knife is not based on any that already exist and are an original design, but are similar to some models that are commercially available.

Made to be used in reverse style grip, with the blade folding in a way that it will not cut your fingers if the lock fails, the lock is a Liner Lock, however the knuckle duster can be used with the blade closed, the blade is open using a thumb stud.

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 palm rest that is neither flat or curved but is the shape of the knife handle, the weight is reasonably low due to the handle being made of Aluminium.

These have four spikes for striking, and a 3 inch partially serrated blade and would be a considerable weapon in a  fighting / War situation that can be used closed or open features a folding blade as mentioned. 

Features no makers mark , but was made by the person who made most of the knuckle dusters in the collection.

Overall a pretty nice piece, could be finished better though, and is certainly unique.

Dimensions 115mm wide, 80mm high, 6mm thick Knuckle Duster 12mm overall thickness - Finger holes are approx - 23mm wide and 30mm high,

  1. This design makes sense to me, I've thought long and hard many times on how to do something like this, very nicely executed. Well done!
