2/27/18 - This is an original WW1 US Trench knife with original scabbard. The interior of the knuckle guard is maker stamped "A.C. Co" and 1917 dated. The blued blade and handle are in excellent condition. There is some surface wear on the blade, but this is light scratching and the bluing is mostly in tact. The wood handle is excellent with no cracks or chips. The original scabbard is correctly M.S. stamped on the metal ends. The leather core is completely in tact as well. Guaranteed original.
