WW1 Germany Kampfmesser fighting knife German Army trench dagger; intact blade, original “boot carry” metal scabbard overall condition. Scarce type in great overall condition, considering the age.
Original WW1 era German Army Kampfmesser (close combat knife) manufactured circa 1915-1916 by an unknown maker; the dagger is completely unmarked. Sturdy full-tang construction trench knife with checkered wood handle scales, forged curved iron guard, and original “boot carry” metal scabbard. This type is illustrated on page 75 of the excellent French reference book by Christian Mary Knives and Daggers-Bayonets Used by the German Army During 1914-1945 (see the book’s page scan in the photos).
This fighting knife is in used but it’s in great overall condition for the type – no pitting, dings or nicks on the blade; the edge is very sharp still; needle-like tip is intact. The dagger is about 10-1/8” / 25.8 cm overall; the blade is about 5-3/4” / 14.6 cm. Original varnished wood handle scales with iron pins and curved iron guard is nice and tight; all parts are solid with no play. Original blued metal scabbard in in great shape as well; the scabbard holds the blade tight with no wobble. After 100 plus years this WW1 Germany Kampfmesser fighting knife is still in 100% serviceable condition; it’s in great shape overall, considering the age. Today most of the surviving WW1 era Kampfmesser knives are in private collections & rarely come up for sale.
