This 1918 WWI replica trench knife is an exact copy of the trusty blade issued to troops during the First World War. Since trench warfare consisted of such gruesome, close-quarter battles, the trench knife allowed soldiers to not only stab but also bludgeon enemies with the knuckle guard handle. The 6 3/8" AUS-6 stainless steel blade has a double-edge. The heavy duty handle also has a skull crusher. The trench knife is 11" in overall length.

Decent Replica! Reviewed by Allan Fulghum on Aug 19, 2017   4 out of 5

In WWI, the trench knife was intended to stab, punch and crush the enemy combatant in hand-to-hand combat. That was the sole purpose of the trench knife design for the time. Today, it will still serve the same purpose. It is not a hunting knife or a survival knife so if that is what your hoping for in the use of this knife, you will be disappointed. But if you're in a life or death situation and have the skills, this knife will get you through it. The sheath of this replica is not intended to do anything but protect the point and safeguard against accidental stab wounds. If you're looking to carry this knife, go to a saddle shop and have a durable leather sheath made for this knife as I did. I am pleased with this knife and would recommend it for those who know it's intent with the skills to use it as intended.

It's crap. But take it down to 9.95 and I'll buy one. Also, don't waste your money on the sheath. It's green painted aluminum and doesn't have a belt loop. So, it's even more crap. They should give you a discount on the knife for being stuck with it. It's like putting a sheath on a butter knife sitting at your kitchen table.

Good enough for it's job. Reviewed by Sean McLain on Oct 12, 2015   5 out of 5

This is not a workknife, this is not a survival knife. It's a fighting knife. It's meant to stab, smash, and punch with. If you want a display piece for historical purposes, this is prefect it's almost exactly like the real ones. If you want a work knife, move along. If you want a survival knife, move along. I fyou want a knife for self defence, check your laws, if this is legal in your area, pick one up. Some people will say that the steel is bad, sure it needs sharpened frequently, but that's not a problem this is a stabbing blade, not a cutting blade, it's not supposed to be sharp, except for the point. This thing comes with a great point, I tested it myself and can ram it through plywood with a good solid lunge. The blade might come a bit loose, but the tang is threaded so just turn the nut at the back with a wrench till tight. It will do it's job of saving your life if you need it to and can use a knife properly. Sure it's material mean you shouldn't use it to process wood, but that's not what this is for anyways, is it? No it's for putting holes in people, and it will do that just fine.

Junk Reviewed by mark on Apr 30, 2015   1 out of 5

This knife is a total piece of junk. As soon as I took it out of the package the blade was extremely loose in the handle. The blade is not sharp at all. Its a real shame that this fine piece of american history is made in china. I guess you get what you pay for.

"Not Sharp, Fingers Don't Fit" Reviewed by Bryan on Mar 19, 2015   2 out of 5

It looks like a replica of a WWI trench knife should. However, my knuckles do not fit through the finger holes. Not even close. I have big hands, but not that big. The blade came extremely dull. There was no way to sharpen it without using power tools. A hand-held diamond sharpener would take years to put an descent edge on this blade. Would not recommend, unless it is for display only. Not a functional knife.

1918 Trench Knife Reviewed by PaPa Smitty on Mar 13, 2015   5 out of 5

It's a nice knife... but it's not a knife to be taken serious in a knife fight or some altercation of some sort. It came in dull, which I fixed in the matter of minutes with a knife edger. I bought it more for the historical value more than use. Because of this I'm giving it a 5 star. For use of self defense or even using around the yard for work. I wouldn't recommend for that and would give it 2 stars.
