    Default German WWI private purchased trench-knife

    Hi, mates !

    Want to show you this private purchased German trench-knife.

    This kind of non attachable kniveīs were sold by traders with, or without, a narrow press-catch.

    Some owner of such a knife later decided to add his knife with a narrow press-catch because of "optical-reasonīs" ...

    (A press-catch in the predator-bird looking pommel suggestīs an "birdīs-eye").

    It seemīs, that the narrow press-catch of my knife indeed is a knurled-head screw ...


    Any comments ?

    Hi Reibert, interesting little modification. A friend of mine used to own one of these style knives many years ago. I wish I had bought it from him back then.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Reibert, i believe your 'Nahkampfmesser' is of the Third Reich era, between 1935-40, it is very similiar to a 'CARL EICKHORN WAFFENFABRIK' produced knife, (if it was, it would be marked as such, incl the 'squirrel/sword motif) with a blade similiar to a WW1 trench knife. The style of scabbard was still made, (WW1type) upto the outbreak of WW2.
