Hi, mates !
Many yrs. ago i received this, particular FMsr 78, (Feldmesser 78).
The metal parts of the knife are all chromed !
I learned, such knives are, (were), honor-presents, (gifts), conferred to graduates of the HUOK, (Heeresunteroffiziers-Akademie), the NCO Military Academy of t he ÖBH, (Austrian Army).
But, I do not know, if all graduates are, (were), rewarded with this award.
Usually, the knive was mounted on an wooden plate.
I spotted such knives, marked with the Bundesheer-Abnahme, also, with the "commercial" GLOCK -markings.
Any, further, informations are required !
Thx. in advance,
I was told, there is an example with an etched blade, awarded to an NCO.
