Title Paratroop gravity knife
Nationality German
Period 1944
Sold

A somewhat battered example of the take-down version of this knife. One grip would appear to be walnut, the other one beechwood, but both original. The marlin spike is marked with the RB number '0/0561/0019', which firmly dates the piece to 1944, or just possibly 1945. The blade is marked Anton Wingen.

It has had a careful armourer's repair to the broken spring on the lock, a fairly common occurrence with these knives, but, more importantly, 1 cm of the blade has been shortened due to use/abuse, but this has also been done by a professional armourer.
