    Sort of, the design would be improved by just having a straight bar guard instead of finger holes. Even then though there’s not much reason for a hand guard like that unless your expecting to try and defend against a sword

      Idk brass knuckle can be surprisingly lethal, a D guard would probably be better though

        A blade is more deadly than brass knuckles. With a longer weapon bashing someone with the guard makes sense if you get in close, with a knife that short though you might as well stab them at contact distance.

        Try using a sword in a trench or a residential hallway

        Not the point, moron

          Stabbing relies on blood loss or hitting the spine and ive heard enough stories of people getting stabbed in the head and continue moving to stop thinking thats viable
          Blunt force trauma however seems to be more consistent in that regard

            >blood loss
            Doesn’t take that long if you actually hit somewhere important. Cut the carotid and they’ll be dead in 15 seconds. Stab the heart and they’ll be dead instantly
            >but muh instant knockout
            Soldiers wear helmets. Even if they don’t you have only one option for instant incapacitation which is to bash their head. This isn’t to say a good club is a bad option in a trench but to say there’s benefits and drawbacks to both.

    Probably a stiff razor wire, like a fencing saber but way shorter. Something that can frick up flesh and is also rigid enough to stab with, but way lighter because much less material in the blade and makes no pretense of also being a tool or being used against other knives. It could be retracted into the hilt so the whole thing can be the size of a folding knife when not in use.

      So a knife?
      >makes no pretense of also being a tool
      A weapon is a tool used for violence
      >or being used against other knives
      Bigger knife usually wins a knife fight
      >It could be retracted into the hilt so the whole thing can be the size of a folding knife when not in use.
      A folding blade is not only weaker but also slower to draw
      I hope you're underaged and not just moronic

        Oh wow, deliberately obtuse nitpicking, I bet that gets you laid a lot.
        >Oxymoron
        I appreciate that you overlooked the reference to fencing sabers which made it clear i mentioned razor wire in the comparative sense, rather than in the strict material sense. Very disingenuous, really serves to drive home how pointless your post was.
        >So a knife?
        Is a chisel a knife?
        >A weapon is a tool used for violence
        You are a tool to please gay men, but you can also presumably be employed to mop up the shitty cum afterwards. A combat knife would not claim to have any purpose beyond being a combat knife.
        >Bigger knife usually wins a knife fight
        There is no relation between knife size and fight outcome.
        >A folding blade is not only weaker but also slower to draw
        Who said anything about folding? I envisioned spring loaded, button activated.

          No

          Stop projecting dude

          Knifes a knife, you can stab a c**t, you can butcher game, you can sharpen a stick, doesn't matter the purpose of the knife the knife does what a knife does
          >There is no relation between knife size and fight outcome.
          >reach means nothing
          Lololololol
          >Who said anything about folding?
          You literally mentioned folding dude and any mechanism no matter the type is weaker than a full tang knife moron

    Total meme that inhibited its use as a knife, which is why it was issued for such a short period of time, but undoubtedly fricking cool which is why I want one (and why they're so expensive, which is why I don't already have one)

    Many Russians in the Finnish Winter War were killed by the puukko, a scandi grind guardless woodsman knife. A Mora knife that is sub-$20 from Amazon is basically that knife. It just comes with a crap ass sheath.
    Buy a better sheath from ebay or something and that's one of the best actual no bullshit combat knives.

      You know i never cared for the Puukko, its just not very interesting. Straight blade with a rounded edge, wow so cool.
      The most interesting thing about one I saw was in an old video and they used stacked birch bark for the handle, now thats interesting but none of the modern ones ive seen do that.
      People's obsession with it is just finn wankery imo

        It's a knife born of pure utility that incidentally is also a proven combat knife. For $20.

    I too have a M1918 repro I found in a storage locker my uncle got at auction for $200. I just wish repros didn't try to imitate what the knifes started to look like. All of them made have shiny brass handles and fresh looking steel, when the originals had blackened brass grips and blued blades out of the factory.

    Overall, good knife. I keep it sharpened use it to breakdown cardboard boxes and punch down the cardboard in the recycling bin with it.

    Who makes a good F-S type dagger these days? Looking for that sweet spot nexus between quality and price.
