    Default Trench art knife made by Estonian soldier

    I'm not 100% sure if this knife was made in frontline or in POW camp or by forest brothers after 1944 when Soviets invided Estonia but it like this knife. The handle is very well made and blade is still very sharp after all these years.

    Hi,
    here you have my pictures.
    Meantime, to be sure about the exact history, I take care in nearest future to get contacted one of those guys who still alive and possibly knew owners of those knives.

    Great looking knives!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for Your pictures. The blade is the same, the handle is a little bit different and there is no engraving in my knife. As I understand it was made in the end of December 1943 in Mõisaküla. If You will get any more information, please let us know!
