Handmade knife with brass handle - Is this a trench or theater knife?

Postby ToolsOfOld » Mon Jun 12, 2017 3:44 am

Hi All,

I recently found this interesting knife and am wondering if anyone has seen one like it?

The entire knife is 9" long. The blade is 5.25" and the handle about 3.75".

The knife blade looks to have been repurposed for this knife. It has many file marks on it, including on the back edge of the tip. The hilt and handle are brass. The handle has been filled with what I believe to be babbit metal. The brass has a dark patina and there is dust and debris in the crack between the hilt and the handle. A file and campfire would have been all that was needed to make this knife from the parts mentioned.

No identifiable marks on it, unfortunately.

Thanks in advance!
