    I haven't posted on this forum in years.
    But, rediscovered it today, so have made a few posts:

    I don't really collect trench knives, but, over the years I accumulated these ones.
    I believe they make for interesting WWI and WWII study.
    (BTW of the three 1918 MK1 Trench Knives's not one came with an original sheath, they break easily or were lost on purpose.)

    LF&C 1918:
    Nothing too special, just a larger blade than most.
    LF&C 1918:
    This one has a lot of the original black remaining, for that reason it doesn't get handled much.
    Interesting slightly folded guard, for ease of carrying I guess. This was bought from the son of the vet, the son was apathetic and had no info.
    Au Lion 1918:
    Acquired this from a collectors forum. I think it's a really interesting how it differs from the LF&C variant. They were produced in France for the AEF.

    LF&C 1917
    LF&C 1917
    ACCO 1917
    The ACCO is a somewhat rare variant of the M1917 MKII Trench Knife.

    Wow. 6 beautiful blades.
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them
