    This blade of the "Couteau Poignard Mle 1916", (aka "Le Vengeur de 1870"), is in a good condition.


    BTW.:

    The french blade-manufacturer "Au Lion" created and produced the fighting-knife "M1918" by order of the American Expeditionary Forces.
    The "American knuckle duster" was named "trench knife M1918 Mark I"

    Here´s a pic of the "Vengeur":
