    A friend of mine has a few knives that she wants to sell but I really cant find out much about them other than the style and make. One is an 1918 trench knife with sheath but I cant tell if it is a repro or not because it is in near mint cond. The other is an BC-41 style fighting knife, I say style because on the Brass Knuckle handle it does not say BC-41.
    I will post some photos. If anyone has some helpful information it would be appreciated, Thanks.

    Welcome to the forums.

    Can't tell you anything.
    Knives look fine to me.....but I am less than expert.
    But, we have some REAL experts. Maybe someone will chip in.

    The 1918 is right as the rain, dont own a BC41, so I'll defer to someone that does.

    Cheers,

    Looks a heck of a lot like the pics I have seen.
    Better condition than some.

    BTW...
    I wouldn't worry too much about the knuckle knife.
    They seem to have been made by more than one company in WW2.
    Some variations.

    Especially in the private purchase versions.
    I don't think they all had the BC41 mark.
    Pattern goes back to WW1.

    No manufacturer's mark?

    Well, I don't own one of either of them but both look sweet to me.
    The patina in the hollow of the handle of the BC41
    is something that can't be faked. Well, at least it would be tough to do.
    Is it patina or worn black paint? Either way, it's been there a long time and someone trying to fake it wouldn't/couldn't make it look like that.
    Way to natural in my eyes.
    No expert at all, but I really like them both. ALOT!
    Best rule to follow is, if you like it and owning it gives you pleasure and makes you happy, buy it.
    As long as you can afford the purchase go for it.
    Welcome to the forums by the way! You picked a great site to start out on!

    Somebody will say ebay, and they are right. However, I think that they may have a poicly against knuckle knives. I would offer to buy them, but in all fairness, probably could not give you what they would go for.
