Had a blade made for My 1918 Trench knife!

Hello everyone,
Just thought I would post a picture of a 1918 Trench knife I have inherited,
It was just the handle ,the blade was missing from it . The handle was the real deal not reproduction. Was my great uncles when he was in the military.
So I decided to have a blade made for it . I think it turned out nice!

Blade was made from high tempered tool steel and was acid dipped to give it the proper gray military patina. I have to keep a light coating of oil on it.

"The gun has been called the great equalizer, meaning that a small person with a gun is equal to a large person, but it is a great equalizer in another way, too. It insures that the people are the equal of their government whenever that government forgets that it is servant and not master of the governed." - 40th President of the United States Ronald Reagan 1911-2004
