Very nice

Thanks for sharing!

The McNary would have been a horrible weapon to actually use, but it sure is impressive to look at!

"The McNary would have been a horrible weapon to actually use, but it sure is impressive to look at!"

I agree, the rear skull crusher would have injured the user almost right away, I have no idea what type of sheath they thought could be used to safely carry it. Also, I think as a weapon its fish and fowel; a knuckle knife is primarily an impact weapon first, knife second. A light 5-7" double edged blade fits much better in how you'd really use a knuckle knife as a weapon. I do think they got one thing right; using cast-to-tang construction. One of the problems with the 1918 MK 1 was its complex and costly to cast, and the blade tends to come loose over time. Cast-to-tang would have produced the knives cheaper and the blade would always have stayed put.

Yea, well over 2 pounds. Much heavier than a standard bolo knife.

Very neat item you have there! I often wonder what happened to all the items (molds and models) related to the various cast handle knives.
