Up for sale is an original WWII theater made trench art fixed blade fighting knife or survival knife. The carbon steel blade features a clip point at the end and measures about 6 3/4” long, while the handle measures about 4 1/4” long, for an overall length of about 11” long. The guard and pommel were likely both made out of scrap airplane aluminum, while the handle grip was made out of mostly leather washers with a few harder components mixed in that might possibly be red and black Bakelite or hardened rubber washers, but I’m not certain of their composition. Curiously, the central black washer is really loose and slides around easily (see the pictures), although I don’t know why. Perhaps it has degraded and crumbled away over time. I think this could be tightened up pretty easily though by simply injecting some epoxy resin into the center of the washer if desired, but I decided to just leave it alone. The rest of the knife is solid and in nice shape, especially considering its age and history. Note there is no sheath to accompany the knife. If interested, please send me an e-mail and you can stop by to pick it up for only $50 (cash only at time of pick up). Thanks for looking!
