10 Deadliest Combat Knives / Daggers

A combat knife (also called a fighting knife, or a tactical knife) is a knife specifically designed for military personal. Since the end of trench warfare, however, the majority of military knives are now designed for multiple functions (such as chopping branches, opening ammunition crates, etc.) in addition to their main purpose of close combat weapons. A dagger is a double-edged fighting knife with a central spine and edges sharpened the full length. It’s a sword-like weapon with a pointed blade and a handle, used for stabbing. The distinctive double-edged sharp blades with full length cutting edges and central spine distinguish a dagger from any other general-purpose/house hold knives. Daggers are usually used by military personals. They are different from each other according to their shape, sharpness, build and purpose.


10. BC-41

The BC-41 was a combined Knuckleduster/dagger weapon used during World War II by the British commandos for close combat and in ambush situations. The BC-41 is an extremely rare fighting knife. This weapon was originally designed by Charles Clements and was made in Sheffield England. The clip point blade is strongly joined to the knuckle guard and a strong plastic material called Bakelite, grips the primary 4-1/4 inch edge of the 4-3/4 inch exposed portion of the blade when holding it conventionally. Overall the knife is measured to be 9 inches; the knuckle portion measures 4 inches at the widest point. It fits very comfortably in a smaller hand and is considered to be one of the best to date.


9. Push Dagger

A push dagger (most commonly known as: push knife, fist knife, push dirk, or T-handled knife) is a short knife having a design similar to the letter “T”. It is specifically designed to be grasped in the hand so that the blade is pointing forward, typically emerging from between the 2nd and 3rd finger. This is a different style of a fighting knife, made just for stabbing from behind rather than fighting. The blade is oriented horizontal to the ground when held. The cast on aluminium handle has a grip molded for bare hand holding, with finger recesses, and a steel rounded knuckle is designed to cover the last three fingers only. The blade is double-edged, with a flattened diamond cross-section. The total length of the push dagger is 7.25 inches (tip of the blade to back of the grip).

  1. An excellent selection, but I am disappointed that the renowned Randall #1 isn’t on your list. It is definitely superior to the SOG Fixation Bowie and has proven it’s worth in several wars since the late Bo Randall created it duringWW II.

  2. Combat knife designs are mostly an expression in steel of determination, terrain in which it is expected to be used. Other considerations are the size and nature of the units and their mission i.e, are you a member of in Infantry Company in the Pacific or a pilot flying over Europe or, perhaps, a British Commando getting ready for an airfield raid in the desert.
