RARE, 1990’s Yugoslav / 3rd Balkan Wars Theatre Made Personal Side Arm / Fighting Knife With Etched Panels ‘Death To Fascism Freedom To The People’ & Leather Scabbard. Sn 13895 - 13895
The Yugoslav or 3rd Balkan Wars were a series of ethnically-based wars and insurgencies fought from 1991 to 2001 inside the territory of the former Yugoslavia. These wars accompanied and/or facilitated the breakup of the Yugoslav state, when its constituent republics declared independence, but the issues of ethnic minorities in the new countries (chiefly Serbs, Croats and Albanians) were still unresolved at the time the republics were recognized internationally. The wars are generally considered to be a series of separate but related military conflicts which occurred in, and affected, most of the former Yugoslav republics. Often described as Europe's deadliest since World War II, the conflicts have become infamous for the war crimes involved, including ethnic cleansing, crimes against humanity and rape. These were the first European conflicts since World War II to be formally judged genocidal in character and many key individual participants were subsequently charged with war crimes. This theatre of War made fighting knife is no doubt a personal side arm / fighting knife of one of the Militia personnel or other armed factions who fought in the Balkans Wars. This heavy knife has a 7 ½” single edged blade with deep swept top edge. The blade is 2 ½” wide at its broadest and tapers to a sharp point making it ideal for chopping, slashing or stabbing in close quarter combat. The blade has etched panels on both side. One side has a ‘clenched fist within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan Script ‘SMRT FASCISMU’ (Death To Fascism) and the reverse has a ‘death’s head skull and crossbones within shield badge’ above Yugoslav / Balkan script which roughly translates to ‘Freedom To The People’. It measures 12" overall length and has wood slab scales each inset with grooved alloy mounts. The heavy cross guard is brass. The knife is complete with original leather sheath with single retaining strap and sprung stud fastener. The price for this rare Balkans War piece includes UK delivery. Sn 13895
