Original German WWII Wood Handle Trench Fighting Knife with Steel Boot Scabbard
Original Item: Only One Available. Fitted with a single-edged clip-point blade, this is an original fighting knife used by the Germans in WWI and then again in WWII. In nice used condition, this knife has a smooth wooden grip secured by three rivets. Grip scales are in good condition, with no cracks or major chips, and a nice color. The blade is full length on the bottom of the blade, while the top has a false edge. The blade has been used, but is still quite sharp and in solid condition, with a few nicks in the edge.. Overall length is 10 1/4 inches with a 5 3/4 inch blade. No markings are present on the ricasso, which is standard.
The knife comes in an genuine rolled steel WWII steel scabbard with a spring steel "boot" clip on the back, which would allow attachment to the the side of a boot or to a belt. This style of attachment held by pressure, and could also be mounted on other parts of the uniform. The finish on the scabbard is very good, with just a bit of crazing and scratches.
No visible markings but 100% original, a very example for display in any quality German edged weapons collection.
