Value of WWI Trench Knife
  • An earlier D knuckle guard style spike is currently bid at $160 as of 07 April 2005 on EBAY.
  • 1917 is the model designation. That knife was accepted by the Army in 1917. The M1917 Bayonet was made as late as the Vietnam era.
Beware of Imitations
  • A lot of newer knuckle knives are being sold as WWI originals, so be careful!

Probably nothing if it is a knock off, up to $300 if it is authentic. The brass knuckle ones are very common however, so I'm going to say an authentic one of those is worth a little lower than $200.

What is the value of a 1918 World War 1 trench knife with brass knuckles and sheath marked US 1918?

The 1918 US trench knife is worth around $300 if it is original, and depending on the condition. Poor condition really brings down the value. Beware though, there are far more replica 1918 knuckle knifes in the world than originals, fake ones have very bright crome blades, and some have the brass handle cast too small. I have a fake in my collection because originals are too expensive. The original sheath is quality made, the repro ones are cheep and flimsy. A repro is worth about 15-25 bucks.

What is a trench knife?

A trench knife is a specialized knife made specifically for the close quarter combat on World War 1. Most of the fighting took place in narrow trenches or on "no mans land" a trench knife, which consisted of a brass knuckle with a long blade permanently affixed to it was a handy weapon to have. The trench knife doubles as a brass knuckle and a knife; with the knife securly attached to the user's hand, the enemy could not easily take the knife from the user. In trench warfare where firing a gun while in the trench could accidentally harm a fellow soldier who happens to be behind an enemy, a knife or bayonet was a safer means to eliminate an enemy.
