    Greetings Patches,

    As John has stated, the blades are unmarked for the L. F. & C. made variants. Original blade and skull crusher's nuts sets come up once every few months on eBay (quite regularly). There are replacement (read: new) nuts (for the Au Lion's too) on eBay now and though I have not purchased any, I doubt there is any noticeable difference between them and an original (except, perhaps condition/finish). Here's a post I did on these knives a while back The U.S. M1918 Mk. I Trench Knife Thread.

    Regards,

    Lance

    P.S. Before you inquire/ask, I do not discuss prices/values. Though you did well

    hello all, i have been searching the internet and came across this blade for sale. It has a double edge and the triangle near the end. there is a hole on the other end for a pommel. would this be the right blade for the knuckle handle?

    Greetings Patches,

    The blade you have posted is not the correct type for your L. F. & C. handle (or for any factory made M1918 MK. I variant for that matter). Please, see the below image for what "right looks like."

    Cheers,

    Lance

    yes i can see that now thanks for making that clear, on inspection of your example i have found one blade only for sale for $250 or best offer. Only problem is that its for an au lion. I will keep looking thank you.

    for $18 you can buy this one and swap the blade into your handle.

    for the time being, i think im going to stick to looking for an original blade as i have another knuckle duster that was ultimately a fake. Thanks for the help though. Let me know if anyone finds anything!

    if i could find a blade, i would settle for a repro nut, and that would make me happy. If i really wanted too i could buy the sheath also there are a few on ebay for sale but they are expensive!!!
