Trench Knives are the Strangest Bladed Weapons in Modern Warfare.

The First World War was a glimpse into future conflicts. People saw automatic firearms being used to their full potential, tanks crawling onto the battlefield and aircrafts buzzing above soldiers’ heads.

The shift to modern technologies at that time changed the way soldiers fought. Gone were the massed formations and horse cavalry charges, as men were left hunkered down in their trenches.

The anarchist Gavrilo Princip surely never imagined how his actions would lead to this mechanized apocalypse. It’s disturbingly amazing how his round, ripping the neck of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and piercing the abdomen of his wife Sophie, would soon start a conflict among superpowers.
