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.
