    Default Cord cutter knife of the BW

    Hi, mates !

    Want to show you this "Kappmesser, fliegendes Personal, mit Lederscheide", ("cord cutter knife, flying personnel, with leather scabbard"), of the Bundeswehr.

    This knife was part of the survival kit of crews of the "Transall" transport planes, helicopter crews, also was fixed in the chute-box of the ejection seat, as far as I know, in the "Phantom F4F".

    Such knive´s were also used in units of the "Fernaufklärer", ("Lurp´s"), in the "Grenzschutzgruppe 9", ("GSG 9"), also in the close-combat school in Hammelburg, and, utilized in Special Units, (for example, "Einzelkämpfer").

    The knife, manufactured by Rudolf Weber jr., (Logo "Hirschkrone"), replaced the "PUMA Auto-Messer", (in service since 1967), in 1984 and was issued in the Bundeswehr till the mid of the 90´s.

    These knive´s are really heavy, also, solid tool´s and, (for sure), pretty usable as a combat knife also !

    Cheers,
    R.

    Nice heavy piece of kit, and very similar in styling to the "Wilkinson Sword Survival Knife"
