Description

WW1 1918, U.S. Army Model 1917 Machine Gunner’s Bolo Fighting Knife By A.C. Co Chicago & Scabbard. Sn 14557 - 14557

The model 1917 U.S. Machine Gunner’s bolo knife originated from the form of the Springfield 1903 pattern bolo bayonet, identical to the bayonet but without bayonet fittings (see page 66 plates 316 & 317 of Fighting Knives by Fred Stephens). The hilt is steel with contoured wood grips secured by 2 bolts. It has a contoured flat steel cross guard and heavy 10 ¼” bolo shaped blade ideal for cutting dense foliage and digging machine gun emplacements. The blade has staining consistent with age. The ricasso is stamped on one side ‘AC Co Chicago’ and dated ‘1918’. The reverse has model detail ‘Mod 1917’ and ‘U.S’ (U.S. Army) together with ‘CT’. Its original scabbard is canvas covered wood with reinforced leather chape and brass throat mount. The rear of the scabbard has a brass wire hanging bar. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14557
