Trench Knives

The trench knife, also known as a combat knife, became popularized during the First World War because of the numerous raids and battles that occurred in trench lines. A distinguishing feature of most trench knives is some sort of knuckle guard; although, not all trench knives have the knuckle guard feature. A number of trench knives are equipped with spikes on the knuckle guard to prevent an attacker from grabbing the knife hand. The knuckle guard on the knife's handle also adds extra force to the wielder's strike during hand to hand combat.
