    ### NEW LISTING 23/1/16 ###

    WW1 CLASSIC FRENCH BOWIE BLADE TRENCH KNIFE CHASSEPOT BAYONET CONVERSION

    Especially considering its age and usage nice original condition....

    Some considerable work has been done on this conversion shortening the grip and much more.It also has a fascinating really "BEEN THERE" appearance of having been amongst the sandbags, mud, and machine gun emplacements of a WW1 French Trench...a knife with the real "Marks Of History"

    Very nicely crafted, probably in the field work shop and the way the knife balances by just above the guard, and the way the pomell guard and hilt have been reworked from a bayonet to a knife hilt.

    No sheath but probably never had one. The cut down blade was probably desinged to slip into a boot, pack, or some other item of kit.At the most the blade would have been wrapped in a piece of cloth, a method used by various European Soldiers, Sikhs, and others.
    .
    The blade which is still quite sharp has a blade length of about 19 cm, and a hilt length of about 10cm

    From a small established collection of French Trench Knives

    Some rust staining more to the blade but otherwise given its age and the conditions of WW1 front line trenches the knife is in overall nice condition

    You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item.
