    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Nice knife, never heard about it before, is it in WW2, or post 1945 used?

    I had have such a knife. I Bought it i Helsinki, Finland around 1978 and sold it ten years later. I remember the knife fit very loosely in the rubber sheath - no snap around the handle. This knife is depicted as no 40 in an exhibition catalog: Dolken och kniven d till nu, Stockholm 1979. (Dagger and knife then to now/1979).

    Greetings from Stockholm - where the first snow is expected this very night.

    Thx VocelkaV
    I vent on a cyberspace knife safari and my first destination was the enormous "Makandr"-thread on the "Blade Forums". Im guessing that many of you reading this have been there. If not - try to get there. But warning, it might make you speechless. (sorry I cant link)
    I found this knife on page 16 (out of 43), message no 313 (5/11 2015). The context is a calendar illustrated with WW2 knives from the "Makandr"-collection. Pic no three from top shows the knife discussed here. It appears to be complete with the rubber coated handle that are missing from Reiberts knife. In the background is a very interesting picture of some Soviet soldiers equipped with the knife.

    This knive is also called pioneer knive. The rubber scabbard is good and nothing is missing to my mind.
    What is really missing is rubber cover on the handle, because often this knife used under the water.
    Vacha is the name of the factory which produced this knife. The maker mark is very good because often the mark applied poorly on the factory.
    This knife is considered to be from 30s of the 20th centure and of course used during WW2.
    Guess nothing more to tell about this knife.
