Item #: BQ2805 -- A Scarce WWI French Trench Knife from Lebel Bayonet -- $285.00
A dug example of a theater converted M1885 Lebel rifle cruciform bayonet. The blade has been greatly shortened and the sword breaker guard has been bent back to act as a hand guard. An effective looking trench cleaner with lots of period character and moderate to heavy rust patina. The rifle attaching lug still functions properly; without scabbard. 31.5 cm. overall.
