    All these were reasons why, to discard this pattern knife.
    Because the shape, (design), of the blade, this knife was more a tool, than a weapon ! ...

    Another M1968 "look-alike":

    Trade-mark: TSR, (Thomas Sturm, Rottenburg), as far as I know, later: Mil-Tec

    Hello !

    Some collectors mates wrote in this particular thread, theyīre interested to get such knives.
    I do have two of them, (worn and used items), for trade.
    Iīm looking for an US Army issued US M9 bayonet, or an British Army issued SA80 bayonet.

    Best regards,

    R.

    I was happy to receive my knife today: (
