Original German WWII Kriegsmarine Navy Diver's Knife with Scabbard - Unit Marked O.147
Original Item: One of a Kind. This is an extremely rare example of a German WWII Kriegsmarine (Navy) Diver's Knife, complete with the original brass scabbard. Original WWII examples are almost never seen on the market, as most were lost long ago or melted down for the brass. This example is completely correct and genuine, with a lovely aged patina on the exterior. Both the pommel and scabbard are marked with unit marking O. 147, which we have not been able to identify.
Condition is very good, and the blade does not appear to have been sharpened, or used much, though there are some scratches on the tip. It still has it's original rubber sealing washer, though it has become hard and cracked due to age. There is also a crack in the wall of the scabbard, as the bottom is a separate piece. Over time the stress led to the crack, which take decades to develop.
Only the second example we've ever had, ready to display!
