Default 1918 L.F.&C. Trench Knife

Another member would like your guys opinions. I pulled this out of an old collection and is one of the best I've ever had the pleasure of owning. Hard to picture but it has a beautiful uncleaned dark patina and almost all the blueing on the blade is still in tact.

Opinions are welcomed. Thanks,

Mark

Very Beautiful LF&C Trench Knife, Everything for me looks 100% correct and looks to have quite a bit of the original black finish left on it!

A beauty! Highly collectable in this condition. If he doesn't like it, send it my way.

Yes, that one is a real beauty indeed!

Very hard to find in this nice of condition.

I found it's twin back in the late 1980's for $30 in a motel room buy in Carrol, IA. Unfortunately I sold it a few years later for $150 to a collector friend.

Best Regards,

Alan
