The U.S. M-1917 & M-1918 Trench Knives’ Thread (Yes, just the wooden handled ones).

Article about: Greetings all, With the popularity of The U.S. M1918 Mk. I Trench Knife Thread I thought it was high time to complete a companion thread

    Default Two veterans meet to discuss old times.

    Here we have two veterans from France. The M-1917 (left) is from a USMC assembly point (The 6th MG Battalion's) located about ten miles from Saint-Mihiel and the M-1918 (right) knife hails from the vicinity of Belleau wood (but not Belleau Wood proper). Interestingly, both were found with the remnants of their Jewell scabbards still on them along with their M-1910 belt hooks intact.

    Default An example of an original O. C. L. that has the wrong blade's orientation.

    Greetings all,

    In post #8 of this thread I posted an H. D. & S. variant with the wrong blade's orientation. Below is an original O. C. L., also with wrong blade's orientation. Was the handle replaced, who knows, but the blade did not originally depart the factory oriented this way.
