Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

German WW1 trench knife (?)

#1 Post by M67 » Fri Oct 19, 2018 10:51 am

Anther one from my small ww1 collection.
German troops during ww1 used different types of assault knives. The blade has 174 mm. The blade is very strong and wide 6-4 mm.There is script BESTSILVERSTAHL on the blade.
I can not confirm that the knife is used to be a part of combat equipment during ww1, so I put the question mark.

I had not seen this variation. Could it be a personal enhancement ? Is the scabbard a standard type or some other variation. The ones I have had/have have wooden grips
with diagonal slash marks similar to the WWI bayonet Scabbard is a metal sheath with an attached leather frog with a snap for securing the blade. Scabbards are mostly
painted black
