    Am i right in thinking that this is a cheap reproduction made to look old? After looking throught the fake threads the only thing it seems to have going for it, is the markings are on the correct side of the blade. Just want to double check.
    Thanks in advance.

    Greetings Peter,

    Check out post #28 here That WWI German & occasional Austrian Trench Knife Thread but before you do note the orientation of the slants on your suspect knife and the full blade's edge first, and you will have you answer.

    Interestingly, here's an attempt to "jazz-up" a similar reproduction, this is currently on eBay item #162225735784. With all of that stuff covering the handle, it just has to be legit right?
