BEFORE YOU CAN SAY KNIFE…
This here is a fighting knife. It might look bruised and worn out, but don’t let that fool you! Epic Armoury’s Battleworn Trench Knife is a latex-hybrid single-edged knife with an intricate knuckleduster handle. In length it resembles a medium sword richly detailed with traces of wear like rust and notches.
The knife is 85 cm long and has a 65 cm curved blade inspired by weapons of the First World War. The elaborate crossguard curves around the hand, providing a comfortable and protective grip for each individual finger, but also good for close quarter fighting where a punch might be just as effective as a slash. The 11 cm handle is casted and painted to look like real wood with metal embellishments.
Whether you are a ruffian, a marred soldier or a post apocalyptic warrior, this Battleworn Trench Knife is our highest quality gear due to its impressive durability and detail. The blade is made from closed cell foam around a fibreglass core and finished with a strong latex coating, while the handle is a polyurethane foam cast that allows for greater detail and no maintenance. Whenever you are going for a worn and distressed look for your LARP character, this hybrid model sword will make you confident in the safety and appeal of your weapon on the battlefield.
- Style of knife was developed during the First World War to incapacitate soldiers in close quarters
- Some of the earliest knuckleduster styled knives were issued by the US Army during WWI, including the 1917 and 1918 Mark I trench knives
