This is a nice German WW1 trench dagger (with the exception of the German Nahkampfmesser or (close combat knife), most early trench knives were fabricated by hand by individual soldiers or blacksmiths for the purpose of silently killing sentries and other soldiers during trench raids.[6] These early "trench knives" were often shortened and sharpened Army-issue bayonets. One type of stabbing weapon, the French Nail, was made by cutting and pointing the steel stakes used to support the barbed wire protecting trenches.

WALD. RHEINL. The blade also carries an acceptance mark above the ERN.WALD.RHEINL. the wooden grips are held by three rivets and have nine grooves. The scabbard is made of blued metal with no dents but is missing its belt loop. See German Combat Knives 1914-1945 by Christian Mery on page 34 for a virtually identical knife.
