The knife a 16 cm long steel blade and a full length including the hilt 29 cm. One side of the ricasso is well marked with a stamped Luftwaffe style Waffen-amt (much rarer no 6, most are marked no 5) indicating the knife was an ordnance issue item. Blade is in very good condition with just some runners, no surface rust.

 

The knife has a natural steel, horizontal scalloped tip double crossguard and nicely contoured carved, natural softwood grips. The grips are secured to the blade tang by three small steel rivets.

 

The knife comes complete with its original, black painted sheet metal scabbard which retains about 85% of its original black paint. The scabbard has its small throat retaining rivet intact to the obverse and a triple prong spring steel retaining clip with two small, retaining rivets to the reverse, so it have all retaining clips and nothing broken as it usually is.

 

Not a easy item to find in this Very Good Condition.
