With over 30 years of experience in the industry; we have historical roots with relation to knife production that stretch back many decades. As such, we find the history of knives fascinating – so when we came across this particular story; we were particularly interested.

Recently, in Western Esplanade; a historic piece of World War One memorabilia was stolen from a Canvey museum. The item concerned is a trench knife – otherwise known as a trench dagger – and was taken from a display case within the museum. The incident was believed to have occurred between the hours of 10am and 1.15pm on Monday the 5th May.

Stolen Over Bank Holiday Weekend

It is thought that knife was stolen whilst volunteers from the museum were showing members of the public around over the last Bank Holiday weekend. Allan Reed is a volunteer at the museum; and said that it was both an important and significant part of the military history of Essex.

The knife itself has a knuckle duster grip; and has Vulcan and Sheffield Steel on the blade. The markings GMH Stealing; Essex Reg 1916 can be found inscribed onto the blade. Anyone with access to information on the theft; or who may have been offered the item for sale, should be directed to PC Lisa-Ann Gore at Essex police; who told The Enquirer, Essex:

Very Important To The Museum

“The museum would like to get the piece back as it is very important to them. It is also a weapon and we would like to get it back in safe hands. I would urge anyone with any information to contact me as soon as possible.”

Memorabilia items from WW1 can be extremely valuable; and are often fantastic examples of knife production in previous historical times. In product design; lessons can always be learnt from the past. Examples of time and dedication being applied to the production of knives can be found throughout history.
