Theft of WW1 Memorabilia Interests Manufacturers of Trimming Knife Blades

At Knife-Point; news related to the manufacture of knives is always of interest to us. With 30 years of industry experience – and historical roots within the production of knives spanning decades – we are always amazed to see some of the stories that crop up surrounding knife production.

In this vein; it recently came to our attention that a historical WW1 memorabilia knife was stolen from a Canvey museum; in Western Esplanade. The incident occurred on the morning of 5th May – the last day of the most recent bank holiday. The item concerned is a trench dagger – or trench knife – and was taken from one of the museum’s display cases.

Knife Production in the Past

The knife is a fantastic example of past knife production; with such different constraints placed on the manufacture of it than ones that would be applied to present day products. Some characteristics of the ideals that went into producing it will remain true to this day though. Hard work and dedication to the craft – something that we at Knife-Point understand – are things that should always be applied within any walk of product design. They are the key essentials that enable us to deliver the high quality of products – such as our trimming knife blades – to our customers.

When you consider these aspects of knife manufacture; you can understand why the memorabilia knife that has been stolen is considered so valuable. A museum volunteer – Allan Reed – was quick to play up the significance of the incident; whilst PC Lisa-Ann Gore, of Essex police – told The Enquirer: “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.”
