    overall lenght of the knife: 243 mm

    Thx. in advance,

    Reibert

    A collectors mate wrote to me:

    "Reibert,

    I did some checking on the web and only found your other threads trying to identifying this knife. So I emailed a friend, the curator of uniforms at the Hungarian Military Museum in Budapest, and here is his answer.

    "Regarding your knife: I've seen this knife in more versions, the maker is unknown (maybe soviet? maybe hungarian?), but one thing is clear: this knife was used by hungarian paratroopers, both in the army and both in civilian (sport) circles. It was used in the 1970-90's maybe."
    So it was used in military and civilian circles in Hungary which is not unusual. As to its specific purpose I can not say. It would appear to be more of a general purpose knife rather than one designed specifically to cut parachute cords.
    "

    Thx. !

    Nice, unusual knife. The blade shape is extremely radical - similar
    to Japanese made commercial blades.........
    Regards,


    Steve.

    Overall lenght: 269 mm
    Blade lenght: 158 mm

    Please, note the maker of the grip !

    In my opinion this is a knife, used in an youth organisation, maybe in Bulgaria ?

    Hello Reibert, this is a soviet made knife, commercial use as far as I know, there are plenty of them here in Hungary as well.
    By the way, your private e-mail inbox is not working,check it, before it is too late

    Hello Reibert, thanks for a kind collector friend, there are some news regarding the producer of the presented knives.
    Maker:
    ПК МООР (Московское общество охотников и рыболовов = Production Combinate of the Moscow Society of Hunters and Fishermen) in 1960-1970 years
    These knives were produced as civilian knives, but Hungary ordered them for cord cutting.
