**RARE**WW1 1917 U.S. Military LF & C (Landers Frary & Clark), Henry Diston & Sons Design, Trench / Fighting Knife & Scabbard. Sn 18672 - 18672

In 1917 several designs were submitted to the U.S. Ordnance Department for a new fighting knife. The design by Henry Diston & Sons, Philadelphia was chosen over others (see pages 22 – 23 of Cole’s book U.S. Military Knives).This is an excellent original example of the Diston design Model 1917 Trench/ Fighting Knife. The blade is a simple but effective blackened 224mm triangular spike (355mm overall) secured to a contoured walnut grip with finger grooves. The steel knuckle bow bears a row of pressed pyramid shaped steel knuckles. The guard of the bow is crisply stamped 'US (Army) L.F.& C (Landers Frary & Clark) 1917’. The original leather scabbard has blackened fittings including an integral brass belt hanger. The throat mount has a small ‘I.S’ stamp, most likely a factory inspector’s mark. The scabbard has no visible manufacturer or date marks. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 18672
