    I don't know about the name, but as I'm sure you know it is a WWI battles souvenir letter opener, I used to have one for Ypres. The name might be the maker as a guess. Good item and I wish I had kept the one I had.

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Very nice indeed.
    I could come up with several suggestions, for what 'his Jeanette' might be, but as they'd all be dirty suggestions and as this is a relic forum, I'll cease and desist..

    Hey bond,
    I do know those "Ypres" marked bajo's, but they are almost 3 times smaller.
    Also never saw one in its box.

    The one I had was only a bit smaller than the one you have shown, though it was not in a box as you mention.

    I was just informed on a French forum, that "Jeanette" was the nick name given to they're bayonet by Belgian trooper's. The French "poilus" called it "Rosalie".
    So I was told.

    It looks to be of very good quality.
    I remember, that we could buy miniature Garand bayonets as sold by the military, but they were just cheap tat compared to the look of this one.
