In the darker days of WWII, the fighting spirit of some civilians under occupation exceeded their material means to wage war. In other words: plenty of will, not enough weapons. But they found a way.
Inspiration and implements were both provided by the OSS, SOE and other Allied organizations. This is where the Liberator pistol was born, along with the now-familiar arsenal of covert weapons (like lapel and sleeve daggers). One particular tool is less commonly known, but no less effective at putting holes in people who deserve it: the Pitchfork Tine Dagger.
It was relatively easy to make from a commonly available tool, and represents the creativity of turning something innocuous into a weapon.
We updated this design for the 21st century while staying true to the originals:
- The CPG Résistance Pitchfork Dagger is made from the tine of an actual, modern-production pitchfork. The metal is not refined, but it's tough.
- Tip is reshaped to optimize for thrusting when held in a "pistol grip" fashion. This is all thrust, there is no cutting edge.
- Handle is formed with an underlayer of friction wrap with a comfortable and good-looking suede wrap with an integral lanyard/wrist loop.
- An index ridge is woven into the wrap pattern for easy indexing of the point.
- A hand-fit Kydex sheath is molded to fit the unique curvature of the tool. The ridge protrusion helps keep the sheath in place when worn behind a belt for a static line draw. The dagger can rotate slightly in the sheath to move with your body, which is an interesting feature of a round "bladed" dagger.
This is a weapon. There is no utility use for this dagger (not even pitching hay). What started as a historical experiment turned into a very cool piece that is surprisingly comfortable to carry even if it's not entirely practical.
