    Unfortunately not, it's a fake. Do a forum search and you will see a commonality amongst all genuine RAD hewer's by whatever makers that this one doesn't even come close to matching, then you'll have your answer.

    I also agree with Ned..and a perfect example..which I wholly support can be seen here in this link >> Pretty RAD!!!

    With the Exception of Neds Modesty ...this example is everything what an authentic RAD dagger should appear to be. These daggers were crafted to be heavy and Chunky. The photos you provided..show the appearance of the blade resembling a Japanese Tanto knife. Maybe the Angle of the photos?..that gives that appearance..yet also the Boker Logo..is large and being the wrong size. Im having a hard time tracking down the thread showing a greatly detailed Boker. Below is all I can come up with..and you can clearly at least see the shapen difference in the logo style.

    Boker RADS are a very hard find to say the least..and I feel some enterprising entity..knows this..and " Creating Something out of Nothing" ..( Sounds like a good title for a future thread

    This RAD did not partake nor witness into that time period in which it came from and represented. Regards Larry

    RAD Hauer with an "Unterführer" hanger

    Only thing that bothers me a bit is that the poster of this thread is posting only fake shit from Eastern europe, and doesnt take any time to study here.
    There is so much reference material on this site that these repro's RAD are VERY easy to spot just by comparing a few.

    Swinemunde please stop posting these militaria321 shit and start studying the daggers posted on this site.
