    Hi Edith, welcome to the forum!

    The knife appears to be a field made item. I have seen very similar ones before. It will will be Allied, either US or British. Do you have a scabbard for it? I can only guess at a possible market value.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Vincent, the true US M1917 issue trench knife has a cruiform shaped blade (I used to have one in my old US collection). I would strongly believe the on you show is some kind of modern knife loosely based upon the wartime design.

    Cheers, Ade.
