Very nice Reibert!
I think all of the examples you have posted are quite collectable.
Currently I have only one example that would fit into that category.

Damn! I come back and my thread has 63 replies? Thanks guys! Reading this over was fun.
LEt me show you one of my favourit
Reibert mentioned the "been there, done that look", i think mine done that.
M1917 K.U.K. fighting knife, this knife was used by my friends grandfather in hungarian army during WW2 east front...
A few other one...
Pretty nice Sturmmesser, thx., for showing !
BTW, the Komporday knife is a little huger than other M1917 pattern fighting knives !
Komporday&Stosz knives are unique among the M1917 knives, the handle is thicker, therefore you can hold it in your hand much better, the crossguard is also longer, which gives your hand more protection.Usually theese knives are marked with hungarian crest, mostly on the crossguard, sometimes on the blade, i have never met Komporday knife with austrian markings before.
