    Hello Chris, it is a german issue fighting/boot knife. I have one like it my dad brought back from the war. I did research on mine and it was noted that they were sometimes used by the wehrmacht or by a pilot but were especially favored by the SS. They are quite rare and one in good condition I seen was for sale for $700.00! They originally had wooden grips and didnt look to be a high quality knife so I was shocked at my findings! I googled "WW2 german bootknife/fighting knife and a couple and some info popped up. Regards....Edwin
    Would you have any pictures of this model.

    The only difference with the one I found is the handle is not wood but some type of medal.
