WW1 1918, U.S. Army Model 1917 Machine Gunner’s Bolo Fighting Knife By Plumb Philadelphia & Matching 1918 Dated Scabbard By Brauer Bros . Sn 18256 - 18256

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 screw bolts. It has a contoured flat steel cross guard holed for wrist loop and heavy 10 ¼” bolo shaped blued steel blade ideal for cutting dense foliage and digging machine gun emplacements. The ricasso is stamped on one side by the maker ‘Plumb Phil’ and dated ‘1918’. The reverse has model detail ‘Mod 1917’ and ‘U.S’ (U.S. Army). Its original scabbard is canvas covered wood with reinforced leather chape and brass wire hanging bar. The canvas has 3 small indistinct printed ink letters. The leather chape is impressed by the maker ‘Brauer Bros’ and has matching date ‘1918’. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18256
