WW1 1918 U.S Army Expeditionary Forces LF&C (Landers Frary & Clark USA) Brass Hilt Knuckle Dagger / Fighting Knife With Matching Correct 1918 Scabbard. ED 2532 - ED 2532

This form of WW1 knuckle knife was the design of Major James Eugene McNary of The U.S Army Ordnance Dept. They were manufactured in the USA by Landers Frary & Clark (LF&C) for American Expeditionary Force Soldiers. This is an excellent, original, 1918 knuckle dagger by LF & C (see page 56 items 276 & 277 and page 68 item 334 in the book Fighting Knives by Stephens). The knife has a leaf shaped, steel double edged blade with medial ridge which measures 171mm length (295mm overall). The blade has just light staining consistent with age & is secured through a brass hilt by a flattened steel locking nut which would cause devastating injuries if used to strike an opponent during Trench combat. The hilt is solid brass and has in larger lettering "U.S. 1918 LF&C 1918" on the grip. It has four finger stalls each with cast pyramid shaped protrusions and large finger guard. The original scabbard is made of sheet steel and has belt loops cut into both sides and correct rear belt bars. The scabbard is stamped ‘LF&C’ & dated ‘1918’. The scabbard has even patina and no dents. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2532
