It's crap. But take it down to 9.95 and I'll buy one. Also, don't waste your money on the sheath. It's green painted aluminum and doesn't have a belt loop. So, it's even more crap. They should give you a discount on the knife for being stuck with it. It's like putting a sheath on a butter knife sitting at your kitchen table.

Good enough for it's job. Reviewed by Sean McLain on Oct 12, 2015   5 out of 5

This is not a workknife, this is not a survival knife. It's a fighting knife. It's meant to stab, smash, and punch with. If you want a display piece for historical purposes, this is prefect it's almost exactly like the real ones. If you want a work knife, move along. If you want a survival knife, move along. I fyou want a knife for self defence, check your laws, if this is legal in your area, pick one up. Some people will say that the steel is bad, sure it needs sharpened frequently, but that's not a problem this is a stabbing blade, not a cutting blade, it's not supposed to be sharp, except for the point. This thing comes with a great point, I tested it myself and can ram it through plywood with a good solid lunge. The blade might come a bit loose, but the tang is threaded so just turn the nut at the back with a wrench till tight. It will do it's job of saving your life if you need it to and can use a knife properly. Sure it's material mean you shouldn't use it to process wood, but that's not what this is for anyways, is it? No it's for putting holes in people, and it will do that just fine.

Junk Reviewed by mark on Apr 30, 2015   1 out of 5

This knife is a total piece of junk. As soon as I took it out of the package the blade was extremely loose in the handle. The blade is not sharp at all. Its a real shame that this fine piece of american history is made in china. I guess you get what you pay for.

"Not Sharp, Fingers Don't Fit" Reviewed by Bryan on Mar 19, 2015   2 out of 5

It looks like a replica of a WWI trench knife should. However, my knuckles do not fit through the finger holes. Not even close. I have big hands, but not that big. The blade came extremely dull. There was no way to sharpen it without using power tools. A hand-held diamond sharpener would take years to put an descent edge on this blade. Would not recommend, unless it is for display only. Not a functional knife.

1918 Trench Knife Reviewed by PaPa Smitty on Mar 13, 2015   5 out of 5

It's a nice knife... but it's not a knife to be taken serious in a knife fight or some altercation of some sort. It came in dull, which I fixed in the matter of minutes with a knife edger. I bought it more for the historical value more than use. Because of this I'm giving it a 5 star. For use of self defense or even using around the yard for work. I wouldn't recommend for that and would give it 2 stars.

A piece of history. Reviewed by Gary on Dec 15, 2014   5 out of 5

I have a real WWI trench knife and this is a great copy, although the handle seems to be zinc instead of bronze. A coat of paint will cover a multitude of sins. Has a goo blade and should function as designed. I like it!

Not Close to the Real Thing BUT Still a Good Deal! Reviewed by Kurt on Nov 20, 2013   4 out of 5

This is a pretty nice piece of steel for the price. The blade is kind of low quality - the point of mine was rather porous but the fit to the handle was tight and the blade was also rather sharp. It is Chinese stainless steel and this is not a heavy duty field knife but neither was the original!!! :D The handle is nice and heavy but not solid brass (one corner was mashed and scratched and you could see the pot metal underneath). The finger holes of the brass knuckles are pretty good sized. The sheath is thin metal and initially the friction fit was tight. However, a few minutes sliding the blade in and out resulted in no friction and the blade just falls out. The scabbard has two prongs on the back to secure it to the web belt, just like the original.
