1.1870, Brass Knuckle-Pistol Combo Apache
The Apache gun was an actual weapon produced somewhere between 1870 to 1900. As we all know, advances in pocket technology only reached their stride sometime after 1915, so before that time the only way a man could carry all three of these weapons at once was to combine them into a single contraption known as the Apache.
2.US Army Knuckle Fighting Knife
The knuckle trench knife was issued to US troops during WWI and carried over through WWII. The knife was used during trench warfare. The handle had built in knuckles, which were very useful for hand to hand fighting. The handle was made of brass and had the date 1918 stamped in it, along with the letters "US".
The scabbard was made of heavy duty brown leather. Strong leather stitching was applied to the perimeter to ensure its durability in combat.
