British WWI Robbins and Dudley Fighting Knife
During WWI the firm of Robbins and Dudley filled the “Tommy’s” need for easy to use in close quarters fighting knives. They made at least 10 different models and we’ve reproduced the 2 most popular versions. Designed for easy manufacture these knives were all private purchase by individual soldiers. This aluminum hilted fighting knife was normally held with the blade pointed downward (this allowed for a very powerful and natural downward blow). The high carbon double edged blade is very sharp. Includes standard top-grain leather scabbard sewn with waxed linen thread and brass hardware.
