CUSTOM MODIFIED U.S. 1918 WWI KNUCKLE KNIFE by Ort
This is a reproduction U.S, 1918 knuckle knife that has been customized.
Just modified and not used.
I supplied the reproduction knuckle knife and had custom knife maker Jim Ort modify the knuckle handle to fit one of his double edge blades.
He then replaced the China made blade and put his custom large double edge blade in its place. I went ahead and etched my Lee’s Cutlery logo on the blade.
I think it turned out great. A one-of-a-kind custom knife.
The blade is a double edge bright polish blade made from 440C stainless steel.
He had to do a little modifying of the tang of his blade to be able to attach to the original nut on the end of the handle. But it’s a perfect fit.
14.0″ OAL; 9 1/8″ blade; 1.0″ wide, 3/16″ thick. Both edges are sharp.
He made a great custom brown leather belt dangler sheath and is included.
