WWII style trench dagger

Hey guys, I figured I would start a thread specifically for this blade, even though I showed some of the build in the M3 trench knife thread here.....




I should mention that this is my first true dagger.

This knife is inspired by many of the daggers of that era. The blade is thick CPM 3v with a full length fuller. It features a zirc guard and butt plate, while the spike is 416ss which is more functional for striking.

The handle is Stacked natural micarta to simulate stacked leather. I think it looks pretty slick.


The sheath also has a bit of an old school feel. With the full handle length belt loop and the Randall style para cord retention. I modernized it by making it Molle Lok compatible and dressed it up with a some really shark skin in the tip.


Overall I am very pleased with it. I hope you enjoy the pics!

I'm not usually a fan of daggers, but you hit this one out of the park!

 

It really looks like a period piece and that handle is just SICK!

No time is ever wasted when spent learning something!

I could have sworn that handle was stacked leather, good job. Everything about that blade looks top notch.

I thought it was stacked leather too, till I saw Doug's post. Then I had to scroll back to the top to figure out what I was looking at! Two thumbs up, on the knife and the handle effect!! 

C Craft Customs ~~~ With every custom knife I build I try to accomplish three things. I want that knife to look so good you just have to pick it up, feel so good in your hand you can't wait to try it, and once you use it, you never want to put it down ! If I capture those three factors in each knife I build, I am assured the knife will become a piece that is used and treasured by its owner! ~~~ C Craft
