    Pre 1945..maybe an export piece. Post '45 I would assume it would say West Germany.

    Just my thoughts
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    To me, the fact that it has Germany on the blade means that it was intended for export. Also the stacked leather washer is something I usually associate with British commercial knives of the 1940s/ 50s. Happy to be proven wrong, but I would think that this this is a commercial, or possibly a bot scouts knife from the 40s or 50s. How long is the blade?

    Thanks for the info guys I haven't brought I I was offered it today and I said I would think about it as I have never seen anything like it before so I took pictures and said I would get back to the guy I haven't got the measurements of the blade but it's about the same size as a hitler youth knife

    I still think it's a commercial piece.

    Blade does look similar to a HJ but IMHO why not. It was a good design.

    I would make a great camp knife , nice design and high quality steel . But I would say it was an export hunting knife not a combat item .
    Cheers

    This is the most accurate description so far. Even 60's or 70's.
    Many post war knives from Germany are marked in this manner. Typical hunting/sheath knife produced in Germany after the war.
