It's not? Sure looks the same to me altho mine has a different catch than the ones shown here. What is the difference??? Sarge
This is an Infanteriemesser 42
The maker´s code hat 1942 stands for the manufacturer Gebrüder Gräfrath, Fabrik feiner Stahlwaren, Solingen-Widdert
The guard on the Yugoslav is wider than your knife's,Sarge. The sheath throat screw on yours is alot lower than the OP's too. The grip is pretty similar!
