Replica Trench Knife
#1
So at a gun show over the weekend I saw a trench knife that was a cheap Chinese knock off. I bought it because I have wanted one now that I have it though I would kind of like to spiff it up. Aside from actually cutting and shaping a new blade myself to achieve this, are there any other options for sturdying up the actual blade?

The blade on it is some sort of cheap steel with a piece of all thread welded to it that runs to the threaded "skull crusher". Is there a way to better attach the blade to the hilt so it does not wobble as it currently does.

I didnt think you could own one in PA as it has a brass knuckle attached to it? Interesting knife, interesting history....

If you paint a piece of shit, what do you still have underneath that paint?Wink

I thought this type stuff fell under C&R of sorts and was OK.

not legal advice, IANAL, just thought I remember seeing something along these lines.
and to the dust you shall return

Yeah I knew that it was POS when I saw it, just the first one I have seen and being a bit a knife aficionado I wanted it. Also I saw potential to may be make it a slight bit sturdier and functional. Hell if I knew how I would make a new blade myself as the hilt is quite nice compared to the rest of the knife.

There isn't any good way to make your knife usable. Enjoy having a 3D picture of the item you've heard so much about and just be glad with that. Attempts to weld, or temper are going to turn out disastrous and even if you went through replacing the steel bits I don't think there is much you can do with it besides stare at it.

you can make a blade for it out of a mower blade.

If you are going to invest the time to learn how to make a blade for it, you might as well just make a new knife that you can actually use.
