4/12/19 - This is an original WW1 production model 1918 mark I Trench Knife. This fighting "knuckle knife" was made by L.F.&C. and is marked as such on the handle. The blade was blued, but today only the base of the blade shows the original bluing. The remainder of the blade is steel colored with light patina but overall is in excellent condition. No signs of sharpening. The handle has most of the goldish coloring in tact.
