Can't seem to figure this one out. It is agreed to be original but all the 1's we can find have a knife incorporated or slight differences, such as the the upper grip which on this is a sharp point. Given to me by a French friend & kept it hanging on my parking brake handle till I took a good look at it & realized it wasn't a repro.. They were U.S. made & the co. markings are well known. They usually had a knife blade but have found some without it but the sharp tang doesn't match any others. Heavy brass & hell of a weapon.
Marked "U.S. 1918" & " L F C 1918". I now use it as a paper-weight & notice that I get a lot less disagreements.
