  • Description: This is an original WWI French Army pocket knife with General Joffre’s name and image on the blade. The knife measures 12 inches overall with a 5 1/2 inch blade. The grip is made of horn with an iron blade and lock mechanism. The release is brass. The blade snaps crisply open and shut with some lateral play after the blade is locked into position. This was sharpened and used but well cared for knife. Marshal Joseph Jacques Cesaire Joffre was the Commander-in-Chief of the French soldiers on the Western Front from 1914 until 1916 and was heralded for his leadership in the First Battle of the Marne. Overall a great looking example of this classic French knife that was either a late or post war tribute.
