Hi all. I recently acquired a HD&S M1917 trench knife. While there is loads of information out there on the LF&C manufactured version, there's not much on the HD&S version. I know Disston came up with original design, but that's about it.
Would anyone know the rarity of this version? I've read elsewhere that the HD&S is not as common. I acquired it through my manager along with some other items that belonged to his Grandfather. He was drafted towards the tail end of WWI however was never sent overseas.
If anyone could give me some information (value, rarity, etc.) I would appreciate it. By the way, this is one frightening weapon! Would have hated to been at the business end of it while in a trench!
