The world war 1 started in 1914 and ended in 1918. the world went on for a total of four years.
Actually, some of the first firearms used in combat could be classified as shotguns, although they were rather large and mounted on the castle wall. Some Southern cavalry carried short-barreled shotguns, and US troops used "trench guns" in both world wars, Korea, Vietnam and both Gulf Wars. It is a common weapon used by security forces on ships, as the damage to the ship itself is not going to be great compared to what it will do to an intruder.

Hello, If in fact your trench knife is authentic and in pretty good condition it could be worth around 200 to 275. Bill Bill....this answer is a little late......but....are you kidding?? You know that a collectible is only worth what someone will pay.......and as far as that goes...people love these knives. Out of the 200,000 or so that were made originally...most were melted down...or just abused. Most will pay in excess of $600 for one without a sheath...as long as its good condition. Ive seen them fly off the shelves for over $750 as long as they're real... not some cheap repo...or even the au lion from France....which is not even near the quality of the L.F.C. I personally know a few vets that paid over a grand for this iconic short-range weapon.....and they all said...."its because it was made for killing.....and it shows..."
