Smile "54-teeth bastard" ... ;)

Hi, nates !

Wanna show you an, (seldom seen !), imperial German trench knife, made by Backhaus, Solingen.

Armeedolche, made by Backhaus, aren´t that often seen, nor, they´re "Sawback one´s" !

Have to admit... First one I've seen. Who carried these, and for what purpose?

Rumors say, the notch in the "crossguard" was supposed to snap barbed wire ...

Hello,

Splendid collection of Trench Knives! Your Sawback is the second I've seen since I began collecting in the 60's. Thank you for posting. Here are a few images of mine, which in hand is a well worn, nasty, deadly weapon.

Regards,
E.
