    Default Close combat fighting/boot knife

    Hello all,
    Here is my close combat fighting/boot knife. This one...as most of my collection was brought back by my dad who was a staff sergent over there, when he returned in 45. It has been "trench art-ed" by my dad with German airplane glass. I believe the blue background pattern is the inside of an envelope. The young lady in the photos is my mom
    Ive learned from and early post by Ade that the stamp on it L6, is the Luftwaffe acceptance mark otherwise it is unmarked by a maker.
    Cheers, Edwin

    Hi Edwin, I rather like that. It tells a nice story and family items are always special.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Hi Ade...Nick, thanks for the comments guys I appreciate it! Very true , I like it that way too. Value means nothing to me on this one. It makes it special because of the fact that he done it on some of his down time so to speak. The way I understand it, most of the time these men were either fighting their ass off or fighting bordom! Im sure there is no way of finding out when it was made...but is there a year that they started production or issued these knives ? I'd like to narrow it down a bit if possible. Thanks in advance to anyone that has any information. Cheers, Edwin

    Hi !

    This is a "Kampfmesser der Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe"

    http://warrelics.eu/forum/daggers-sw...g-knife-20777/

    Thereīre the Luftwaffe Acceptance markīs: "Eagle 5" and "Eagle 6", also the letter "W" or "S", marked upon the blade, (makerīs ?), also unmarked bladeīs are known.

    This pattern fighting knives were made from 1942 on, as far as I know.
