Great item, my boyfriend loved it as he's very into WW1 memorabilia. The only "flaw" is the huge made in china imprint that's stamped on the knife, other than I would have given it 5 stars.

First, if you're gonna get this stuff from china, you better put that in the description. This knife is poorly made. The blade is extremely thin for its length, and is poorly tack welded to a threaded rod that runs through the handle. The little spike on the butt if the knife is actually pretty solid. But the threaded part of the rod that it screws on to was stripped, so when I tightened it with my hand it would slip off. The handle is pretty good, nice solid feeling piece of cast brass. The only thing I would recommend this knife for is either a display piece. Or you can try to fit your own blade to it, which is what I'm going to try.
