Celebration of the
Model of 1918 Mk1 Trench Knife
Aulion Marked Version
This month we show the AuLion marked Model of 1918 Mk1 Trench Knife. Prior to the US companies putting the new knife into production the French cutlery company Society General was cranking them out for the troops. We have never seen a photo of one being worn in a WW I era photo so do not know if they ever made it in time for any action but most believe they did not. Enjoy.
Click on the thumbnails for the full size photos.
Note we show the back of the handles on the smooth top and the grooved pattern. Both were made by Society General with the smooth top seeming to be the uncommon version of the two. Not that either is common in excellent condition!
Next month we will have more knives from the museum. Until then... Enjoy.
