OVERVIEW

During WWI the firm of Robbins 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 push dagger was designed for stabbing from behind with a natural movement (great for unskilled knife fighters) with the high carbon steel blade held orientated horizontal to the ground (point is sharp, but edges are not sharpened).

Includes standard top-grain leather scabbard sewn with waxed linen thread and brass hardware.

Cannot be shipped to CA or MA.

Great feel in the hand, and I have bigger hands. A little tough to clean all the packing cosmoline, but worth it to receive it rust free and in new condition.
The leather holster fits perfectly.
A+ on this one!

As a history buff, I'm kind of like a kid at Christmas on this site. This push dagger is so interesting. Really strongly made and the description hardly does the natural stabbing motion justice. I tried it on some cardboard boxes and, while not quite the same conditions as they were originally intended, it performed amazingly!
