How 'bout some M-1918s and M-1917s knuckle dusting knives?

Here's my Makr 1-1918. She's no longer displayed in this box. Only photo I had on file. Still in the market for a nice 1917. In time.

i dont really consider the LC-14B a fighter but the instructions show how to use it for hand to hand.Dad told me these were to big and bulky to use in combat and most were tossed and not used by forward advancing GI's. Like the medical bolo or square tipped bolo. Guys really like small and thin, less to haul less to be in the way. Bret

damn, I always forget stuff! the M/9 is a EDMF/BUCK build up from D/S#1. got it and a kevelarlid from a young guy.sorry. 17's were more common years ago not many were into them but time has a funny way of changing that. last one I seen 2 weeks ago at a show was 350$ missing a single lower rivet. not a bad deal but the rivet thing was common as is the 18's missing a mounting lug or 2. they are the weak point of that knife.

These knives are sadly quite popular:

The knife stolen was a modified WWI with the crossguard edges ground down for AB use. I am not sure if it was in the original sheetmetal or m8 scabbard - Jerry

WEST BEND, WI - A rare World War II combat weapon was taken from a display at the Washington County Historical Society's museum, according to Chip Beckford, the society's director.

Beckford described the weapon as a combination knife/brass knuckles that paratroopers wore strapped to their legs as part of their combat kit.

The knife is sometimes known as the "1918 brass knuckle knife," but its proper designation is actually the US Mark I, according to Historical Society information.


The weapon was taken sometime before Monday afternoon, when it was discovered missing, Beckford said.

The scabbard the knife was contained in was also taken, Beckford said. Both were attached by stainless steel wire to a paratrooper mannequin in the World War II gallery, he said.

Anyone with information about the weapon should call the West Bend Police Department at 262-335-5000.

From what I have been told, the knife, by Dudley-Robbins, is quite hard to find, but the scabbard is almost impossible.
