This is a beautiful example of one of the many variations of French Trench Art / Trench Knives dating from the World War I Era. This particular one is mounted with a cut-down Lebel bayonet blade that now measures 7 3/8 inches in length which remains in very nice condition with only light stains. It wears a simple but tastefully designed aluminum crossguard and pointed pommel that frame a gorgeously fitted wooden hilt that features bumble bee enhanced high relief detailed fittings along both sides of its spine.
The carved wooden hilt and its fittings remain very nice and tight. Overall measuring 12 inches in length. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items.
