Knife, Trench, M-1918, + metal scabbard, Au Lion
Superb genuine WWI US M-1918 trench knife, with 'knuckles' cast handle and double-edged blade. This scarce knife was manufactured in France by Au Lion within the frame of the war effort -- see markings on the blade.
Delivered in its original US made metal scabbard.
The Trench Knife was widely issued to US Rangers, Marines and paratroops during WWII, until superseded by the M3 knife in 1943. However, most warriors would prefer the M-1918 knife as seen on numerous wartime photos.
A nice set, hard to find nowadays. Don't miss it!
