This is a very nice example of a Trench Knife Dagger made from a Russian Shaska Sword that dates from the World War 2 Era. It is mounted with a bowie style clipped point blade that now measures 10 3/4 inches in length.
The blade remains in superb condition and wears good markings on either side of the ricasso including the date 1940 on one side. The lovely carved wooden hilt reflects a bit of wear to the underside otherwise is healthy and tight and the brass pommel continues to wear the beautiful engraved Soviet emblem. Overall measuring 16 3/16 inches in length.
