German Trench Art WW1 Knife

A German trench art WW1 knife made by a soldier from a shell fragment of an artillery round showing a small section of the copper driving band.  The trench art knives in which the artillery shell copper driving band has been incorporated in the design of the knife make them very desireable with collectors of militaria trench art.  These were very popular souvenir items during the First World War and during the post war battle field tourism boom. On the blade is the slogan: Mein Blud Fur Mein Ehre (My blood for my honor) In the German cross: Ich Bin Treu (I am loyal) On the handle: Ich Helfe Dir Weiter (I will help you further)   Length: 21 cm (8.26 inches)
