Original German WWII Luftwaffe Fallschirmjäger Fighting Knife - Weimar Eagle 6 Marked Blade
Original Item: Only One Available. The Third Reich issued a large number of edge weapons to the military and civilian organizations. The fighting knife featured here was originally designed during WWI. It was widely employed in the trench warfare that took place during the conflict.
This genuine WWII German Luftwaffe fighting knife is held in a scabbard that is designed to clip over the edge of a boot top or belt. It could also clip onto any part of the uniform and was easy to conceal. They were used throughout both world wars by soldiers in the trenches and with this particular style being used extensively by the Fallschirmjäger (paratrooper), Waffen SS and Luftwaffe pilots. This example is in very good condition and features a bald that is marked with a 6 inside a Weimar Eagle. Has wood grip with steel securing bolts, clip back scabbard and was modified to have a double edge in the forward part of the knife. A very common practice by Fallschirmjäger (paratrooper) troops as it was easier to cut the rigging away.
Offered in very good condition, originals like this are always hard to find.
