WW1 Imperial German Trench Knife Dagger

german-ww1-trench-knife-2

 

A completely unique and original WW1 Imperial German Trench Knife Dagger.  This dagger was purchased in the Verdun area of North Eastern France and came from a local family whose forebears had served in the French Army and the dagger was retrieved from a German trench during the war. If you want to hear more detailed provenance for this dagger please contact me.  The dagger comprises a very large animal bone grip that has been moulded to perfectly fit into a soldier's hand and would have been a devastating weapon when used in the numerous trench raids between German, French and British troops.  The blade is also quite unusual in its shape and profile.  I would assume that the blade has been made from a contemporary edged weapon - probably a bayonet.  Condition is excellent - few age cracks to the bone hilt as expected for a piece of this great age.  Blade length is 10 inches (15 inches overall).
