Trench Knife headed to a new home....


Recommended Posts

My take of a 1918 trench knife. It took me weeks off and on. No CNC  or waterjet machines here....just my normal tools and lots of patience. All 1084 steel with antiqued hickory handles. The pins are SS but I did that purposely for contrast. It went to a businessman in Texas. He's bought several of my knives over the years.

That's Beautiful!

Would that knife be legal in Tn as brass knuckles are prohibited?

I don't know...it's based on a trench knife and not technically brass knuckles so.....

Again, beautiful work. I'd love to own one. 

Years ago a buddy of mine bought a #2 Randall Kit Knife someone had made into a knuckle knife, it like your knife was a piece of art.

I'm currently working on getting a couple blanks laser cut (basic shape) which will cut the man hours down considerably and in turn cut cost. If it works out I'll let you all know.

The blanks will still need to be ground, sanded and finished but the time saved would be worth it.

For all the manual labor, I don't think you're making minimum wage.

Independently wealthy and your hobby is a tax write off?

I've bought 3 and gifted 2...don't delay, become an owner today!

Probably not but it keeps me out of trouble (most of the time) and away from the honey dew list. I may have come up with a way to make it even cheaper...just finalizing things in that area.

Grab a file and hunk of steel and make one and you’ll be really amazed at how inexpensive it is.
