Title Fighting/boot knife
Nationality German
Period 1943-5

This is the pattern which has the guard forged in one piece with the blade. They were carried from mid-war onwards to the end as a last-ditch weapon by many of the soldiers, especially on the Russian front. There is no maker mark.

The grip would appear to be fruitwood of some sort, held in place by three brass rivets. It is a slightly scruffy example, with some traces of the original paintwork to the scabbard.

Just to say many thanks for the fast service, it's an excellent little item. Will be watching for you listing more of these and other makes?
