    IMHO the knife is too far gone to be considered "collectable", so would be a good candidate to do whatever you want.

    A couple WWII German knives and I threw in a few related items.

    Iron Cross 1st Class 1939 Medal, manufactured by Eisernes Kreuz I Klasse. On September 1st, 1939 Hitler reinstituted the Iron Cross series of awards. The first class medal was awarded to personnel who performed three to five acts of bravery in combat, and had already been awarded the Iron Cross 2nd class. The obverse of the award features an embossed, central, canted, swastika with the re-institution date, "1939", to the bottom arm. Below the Iron Cross is a 1939 Woolen SS Armband.


    Luftwaffe Paratrooper Gravity Take-Down Knife. The blade release activator is numbered “1”, as well as “539”. The marlin spike and the waffenamt with the stick bird has a “5” in his belly. The Reverse Ricasso has the seated king trademark. The king holds an upward pointed sword, while sitting on the firm’s initials, “S.M.F.” (Solingen Metallwaren Fabrik). Beneath this in an arch shape is the town, “Solingen”, and beneath this the German word for stainless steel, “Rostfrei”.







    Early pattern (pre-1937) Hitler Youth Knife (German: Hitler-Jugend-Fahrtenmesser). The Hitler Youth Knife was a knife sold to and carried by boys of the paramilitary youth organization of the Nazi Party that existed from 1922 to 1945. The Hitler Youth wore knives as part of their uniform, which was very similar to those worn by the Sturmabteilung or SA. The knife was also given to those who performed exceptionally well in minor exams.

    On the Obverse side, the knife has black-checkered grips with the HJ emblem embedded and the blade has the "Blut und Ehre!" (Blood and Honor) motto. The iconic kissing cranes logo for the Klaas firm in Solingen is stamped horizontally on the Reverse Observe side of the blade, along with "GESETZL. GESCHUTZT" (patent pending) stamped below that. Inscribed on the tang is likely the original owners name, which was common. There is no Ricasso on the early Hitler Youth Knife’s like this one but the later variations did have a Ricasso.

    Here's a few of mine:

    L to R, Bulgarian Arsenal Combat Knife, Surplus Ka-Bar/USN Mark 2, WW2 blade marked Camillus Mark 2 with Victory Plastics scabbard, Glock Field Knife that I took to Iraq, Chris Reeve Green Beret that I took to Afghanistan and lastly, my own take on the M-1918 Trench Knife, made from an M7 bayonet.


    The screws came out of the Tek-Lok on the Green Beret scabbard whilst I was out and about, so I secured the whole thing with zip ties.

    Nice! I've been looking for a good example of the "knuckle duster" for many a year, but when I find them, they are about as expensive as some pistols.

    MississippiRifleman, how did you make your trench knife?

    A 1918ish Trench Knife I put together from the handle of an old Japanese 60s-70s repro (the old ones are very similar to the originals and are made of solid brass), a Damascus blade (wider and longer than the original), and a exact repro of an original pommel nut. This was supposed to go to Iraq some years back, but the soldier I made it for went with something lighter.

    I started out with a crappy Chinese copy of the Trench Knife that had little bitty finger holes, so I "wallered 'em out" with my Dremel until I could fit my digits in there without getting stuck. I then put a cutoff wheel on the Dremel and lopped off the "ears" of the handguard so that it would fit in the bayonet scabbard.

    I disassembled the bayonet, and cut the tang right above the pommel/latch assembly, and smoothed it out with a sanding drum on the Dremel, taking the finish off with it. Then I tacked a 1/4-20 bolt into the gap between the ends of the tang, making sure it was good and straight by laying the whole thing out on a steel table before hitting it with the tack welds. I ground the welds flush and then blasted the whole thing in the blast cabinet before Parkerizing it in manganese phosphate.

    I drilled the top of the knuckle duster to accept the tang bolt so that I wouldn't have to grind the bolt flat and mess up the threads, then painted the knucks in Brownell's AlumaHyde black and let it cure.

    I bead blasted the bright brass pommel nut and painted the bayonet scabbard in OD green, then assembled the whole shebang once everything was dry.

    I recently found two more knuckle handles, much better copies than this one, and I'm casting about for a couple of beat up old M7 bayonets to refine this concept a bit.

    Sounds like a cool project. If you do another one, post it here, I'd love to see it.

    These are my 3 favorites:


    I like them all and I take them with me wherever I may roam.
    "odio vitae semper dissolubilis"

    "Ludo mentis sciem"

    "Senecta aetas viresque, atque perfidium expugnat"

    "sic semper purgamentus Yugo kalashnikov! Tempus orbem ad excoquam eorum et dimittetur eis!"
