Article about: Hello! I need a bit of help with this Trenchknife I just got home. Is the handguard genuine and modified or is it an old copy? The blade I know for a fact is a later modification.

    Question LF&C 1918 Knife

    Hello!
    I need a bit of help with this Trenchknife I just got home.

    Is the handguard genuine and modified or is it an old copy?

    Handguard looks fine to me, but of course with an odd blade it makes it look a little wrong. Hope the deal was worth it based on what you have got there.

    Wow!! They have gone up in price...

    Greetings,

    The handle is a modern reproduction, which (as in this exact style's case) are being marketed from France. As you have well-noted, the blade nor the retaining nut are original L.F.&C. manufactured variants.

    P.S. Here's one that sold with the same style handle in 2012 https://www.delcampe.net/en_GB/colle...view/163079785

    Okey, but how modern are we talking? 30 years or after WW1-WW2
    I payed 360€ for it.

    IMO, too much for a reproduction.

    Modern as in post 2000s. You may view the link in my previous post for pricing comparison. I do not discuss pricing.
