This is one of the two trench knives I bought for Christmas. They are really cool and awesome decorative pieces and/ or presents for a fellow knife enthusiast. Sturdy, sharp, and well built. Definitely not a toy. My hat goes off to those World War I soldiers who had to face or use this beast. It is intimidating.
Of the three or four trench spike/knuckle guard knifes I have purchased on this site this one is the best! The blade is huge, the knuckles are solid as hell, and the skull cracker is freaking wicked!
I give four stars because it isn't a bad knife knife, my mind just wasn't blown. just like the description said, the handle is very sturdy. I have already beaten an old dresser to shards with it and it is holding up pretty well. another review said that their blade wobbled a bit, and after taking it apart found that it was a poorly made tang. I took the pommel off of mine to discover that it is indeed a rat-tail tang, but so long as you don't chop things with it it shouldn't pose a problem. the only thing that surprised me when i opened the box was the blade was wider than how it looked in the picture, and whereas the metal looks to be the same make as the grip it was smooth and slightly reflective. I was not disappointed at all with it however. this is a fun knife to show off and play around with, but I don't recommend harsh treatment.
This is a weapon that says "back up, or i'll kill you". I have always loved the WWI trench knives, and when i found this one, i knew that i absolutely had to have it. it's a very sturdy knife, and it came decently sharpened. it's got a good weight to it, and it has a great feel in your hand. the point on the end is extremely sharp, and can certainly do a lot of damage. when wielding this knife, i encourage you to be cautious and dont stab yourself with it. However, i was not dissapointed in the least with this knife, and i love it, it's a great addition to my collection.
I got one of these a long time ago yet I never got the chance to write a review. When I first got it, they seemed alright. But then, it started to dawn on me. First of all, the tang stamp (more like printing) reads Tomahawk. Now, I own several Tomahawk knives and I know them... not in a good way. That's not to say all their knives are bad; this one was quite nice. But I found some major flaws. First, I swung it. The first few times, I felt a small "clink-clank" sound in the handle. "Alright," I thought. So I continued to swing it around (not very forcefully, mind you), but then it became slightly more pronounced. Then I noticed that when it was swung, the blade shook slightly (!) when the swing reached the end. This was a big problem and I knew only one reason behind this: It was a poorly made tang. I had some trouble trying to find a way to take it apart, but then I discovered you could unscrew the pommel very easily with a wrench. I popped that sucker off and slid the blade out. What I saw shocked me: it was a poorly constructed rat-tail with a threaded end to accept the pommel. I snapped this thing with a bit of force, but did not really regret it. Switching over to the pro's, I have a good amount. The handle is well constructed out of steel (I'm not sure kind, but it looks like cast metal), with U.S. 1918 stamped on it. It's hefty, feels good to hold, and on top of that, I got myself a pair of steel knuckles! Overall, the grip was good but the knife could've fared better.
Ok I got these (I bought two) on the 15th and they got to my house by early morning on the 17th. Very good shipping. As for the knives themselves they took a little while for my hands to adjust (I have small hands) but now I feel like I can train with them no problem. They have a great weight, heavy enough to do some damage yet light enough that you arm doesn't get to tired. They are very well built. Now I was skeptical at first because I was worried about the exact size of the blade and handle. So for people who aren't sure if their hands will work with these here are the measurements. Handle: about 3 3/4 inch gripping surface. Blade: 8 1/2 inches. (a bit blade heavy) Butt Spike: 1 inch. The only thing that I wasn't pleased with is that the picture made it seem like the sheath was able to be attached to your right or left side. I was sad to find out it is made for a left hand draw. If your right handed like me you may have to get a different sheath or find a new way to strap them on like I am currently trying to figure out. Also if you wear a wide belt these will not be for you. They fit snug on my belt and it's 1 1/2 inces wide. I really don't want to get rid of the sheathes because they are really good quality. They are nylon but they are very sturdy. Overall I say if your thinking about getting these do. You won't be sorry. Thanks True Swords I will be shopping from you again for sure.PS: They come with what I can only assume are rubber stoppers for a door stop covering the spikes. They are more then likely for shipping, but I'd keep them for when you have them put away or even on your belt (you don't want to bend sideways onto the spike, trust me).
Absolutely love this blade. just holding it makes you feel like a bad ass, and the intimidation factor is way up there. A "must have" for anyone who collects blades.
I got the other version they sell and lets just say that this one feels way more bad-a**. The blade is alot bigger... so is the pommel spike. Its also sharp whereas the other has no edge at all. The blade is more stable as well. The pair feels reeeally nice to hold and it's definatly worth it to get both.
