    Default Infanteriemesser 42, manufactured by Eickhorn

    Hi, mates !


    Today I picked up this Infanteriemesser 42 on a flea market.

    The knife itself isn´t in that good condition, but, it´s showin´the "been there, done that" character !

    overall lenght: 261 mm
    blade lenght: 146 mm
    breadth, (width), of the blade: 22,2 mm
    thickness of the blade: 3,1 mm

    There´re varieties of the Eickhorn-logo of the, "over the shoulder lookin´ squirrel".

    Some collectors are talkin´ ´bout the "1st version", and, the "2nd version" of this, particular, maker´s mark.


    Cheers,
    R.

    The man who sold the knive knew, what he had !
    The asking price was Euro´s 250,--

    Got the knife for an amount of Euro´s 220,--
    It´s not a bargain but it´s what you have to pay for an maker marked Infanteriemesser 42 currently.

    Thumbs up

    I've had one of those for many years. It is in excellent condition/scabbard.
    What I like about it is the makers code u. date - hat 42.
