Germany WW1 Campfmesser fighting knife stag handle, Solingen-made trench dagger. Scarce type in great overall condition, considering the age.
Original WW1 era Kampfmesser (close combat knife) manufactured in Solingen, Germany. This particular stag-handled type was mass-produced during the war to conserve the much-needed steel. This general fighting knife type is illustrated on pages 58-59 of the excellent French reference book titled Knives and Daggers-Bayonets Used by the German Army During 1914-1945 by Christian Mary (see the book’s page scan in the photos).
This fighting knife is in very good overall condition for the type – no deep pitting or edge nicks; the blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact; one minor edge ding closer to the tip is noted for accuracy. The dagger is about 10-7/8” / 27.7 cm overall; the blade is about 5-7/8” / 15 cm. Original European elk stag handle with the S-shape iron guard; red felt washer is still on the blade. The handle is nice and tight, the butt plate is intact; the guard has a bit of a play. The original-issue leather scabbard did not survive. This scarce Germany WW1 Campfmesser fighting knife stag handled is in great overall condition, considering the age. Don’t miss your chance to add it to your collection!
This scarce Germany WW1 Campfmesser fighting knife stag handled dagger has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition; these are the actual photos.
