I just received a WWI Bolo with a scabord. It was listed as a: US WWI M1917 BOLO TRENCH COMBAT KNIFE & A-K-CO 1918 RHS LEATHER /CANVAS SCABBARD.
I cannot find a bolo that looks like the one I purchased. I cant find it in Coles Best of Book and havent seen one on the internet thats like it. The blade is very close to a M 1917 but it has no markings on it and has a much different handle with no finger groves. The scabbord apears to be a type No. 1 with a makers mark of A-K-Co. 1918 R.H.S. on the leather tip. Does anyone know what this bolo is??? Thanks in advance, Please be kind to the new member/new bayonet & edge wepon colector going through his learning curve.
