Review of: 1917 US Trench Knife

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.

Review of: 1917 US Trench Knife

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.

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.
