Trench Art Bullet Knife, 1932

Regular price $28.00

I really love the long, arching shape of the blade on this old trench art knife, with it's handle made from the casing of a 50 caliber FA 1932 bullet. It's more of a decorative object than a useable one at this point though, as the blade, which has rusted a fair amount, is a bit loose inside the casing (if one really tried, you might be able to pull it out entirely.) The very tip of the blade, too, shows a little damage, and the shell casing is bent where it meets the blade. Still a cool thing, and perhaps someone more handy than I could give it a little love!

9 3/8" long; 5/8 across at blade; 3/4" diameter handle.
