Original WWI Austro-Hungarian Fighting Knife with Steel Scabbard
Original Item: One Only. This is an very nice example of the rare World War One Austrian Hungarian Empire fighting knife. This example has a 8 inch steel blade blade with wood grip and steel cross guard, and comes complete with correct steel scabbard and belt clip. The knife is 12 3/4 inches in overall length.
The condition of the knife is very good, with the expected wear from service and sharpening. There is some light oxidation on the ricasso ( which is stamped R ) and cross guard, as well as a bit on the blade, but nothing major. There are some slight crossgrain scratches on the blade as well. The wooden grip is in excellent condition, with only some small dents and no cracks, splits, or chunks missing.
Steel painted scabbard is in good condition, with wear and some small dents. It does not appear to have been repainted, and has more than 95% of the original finish. The original belt clip with securing sleeve is still intact works well, something not often seen. Knife fits well in the scabbard.
This is an excellent opportunity to pick up a great example!
