Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Hey guys! So I've been on kind of an old school kick lately, looking at a lot of cutlass, military and especially WWII blades. This is my version of a trench knife. The 9.5" blade is CPM 3V with a large fuller to help balance it out. The guard is wrought iron and the handle is some of my vintage black micarta (from the 60's). I really don't a lot of sculpted hidden tangs, partly because there are so many makers that just nail them, and partly because I am focused on other styles. This is only my third one probably. The sheath is also an old school style, but I also made it capable of being mounted with a Tek Lok or molle lok. It is all hand stitched, dyed and waxed. Pretty pleased with the whole package.
