Very good
Great one; it is not clear in terms of actual purpose, though: the edges are not sharp. Is it theoretically possible to sharpen them? How our soldiers during WWI  use the piece it being so edge dull (the point of it is sharp, nevertheless)?

Better then 1917
It's as perfect a reproduction as I have ever had.  Fit, finish are with out peer.  I would say better then the ones being issued in 1917

Just bought another one
I just purchased 2 more 1917 trench knifes!
This one is so good and well made I had to buy 2 more one for a extra and one for a gift!!
The wooden handle is hard wood and after wear it looks like my 101 year old original!!

Nice piece of history

Great Repo
I am very pleased with the quality. Great attention to detail. I bought it for the history behind it for my collection and was not disappointed.

In general I was pleased in this repro however as it was the last one you had in stock, it had no box or packaging. And it had some damage to the skull crusher pommel, I'm thinking it was a return, but for all of that I consider it to be a good value.

I bought it as a gift and he really likes it. There was a couple spots on it that I felt looked a little flawed but over all I thought it was very nice.

It arrived in the mail today and a very good reproduction, all the handle parts fit tight.  I just wish I would have been able to request blood grooves on all three sides in case I ever get an urge to sharpen this one.

I picked this up as a "Deal of the day" and figured, for that price even if it's lame, what could go wrong? Well everything went right with this knife.  The attention to detail is amazing, down to and most impressively the sheath. One of the reviewers is wrong. the originals were hollow behind the pyramids on the knuckle guard.  The knife may have been a historical failure by requiring a soldier to carry a second blade for actual cutting task or using an e-Tool to slay huns in the trenches, but this repro by Windlass is so identical to the real thing, that it is uncanny. If you have to have an original because that's what your collection dictates, then so be it, but for putting together a costume, display or wanting something special for when the Zombies come: this is as good as it gets for an M1917 replica.

Hard to realize this isn't the real thing! Nice addition to anyone's collection! I will proudly display this knife with my WW1  display!

This is a great reproduction.  I am buying it.  However, the grip is stamped steel and is not of the same heavy steel of the original which was milled out of a piece of steel, so there were no indentations in the knuckle guard.  Buy this because you do not want to pay for an original.  Great display item.

Outstanding reproduction; very close to my original. (Only newer) the bluing was excellent. The sheath was every bit as good as the knife. Well done!

I would feel comfortable  taking this replica into the trenches of WWI. I would  trust my life to this blade. Highest quality. A faithful  copy  of the original pieces. Just be prepared for a long wait if they are out of stock. But well worth the wait.

An awesome high quality reproduction of the 1917 Trench Knife. Windlass Steelcrafts got it right on this one.
