    Five knives and only two pic´s ?

    Why not five pic´s for every single knife ?

    The knuckle-duster deserves even more ...

    Here´s an Infanteriemesser 42 from F.W. Höller

    Sadly the scabbard´s missing, but the knife shows a maker´s mark and also a nice crossgraining !

    Bingo! The big one is a Dutch stormdolk M1917, and the other one is a post M1917. The story tell that the german shortned the knives themselvs, but I dont now why. Maybe they need fieldknives more than fightingknives? The scabbards was also shortned, but I do not have this one yet.

    OK, took some pics of my LW boot knife. Not as pristine as some others shown, but a nice example still. Also a couple more fighting knives. The streaks and what look like scratches on LW knife, is just RIG rust inhibitive grease, it is not buffed or scratched, or re-sharpened at all, just a few spots of discoloration

    Very Nice knife Reibert, you also take very good pics. I like the background items added. I am trying to find a nice EK2 also.

    Fighting knive´s where mostly used as field-knives/utility-knive´s in the Wehrmacht ...

    The dutch Stromdolk was in use in the Wehrmacht as "Dolch 115 (h)".
    I´ve read, that the "Division z.b.V. 800" was equipped with this dagger.

    But also other units of the Wehrmacht used captured weapons of other Army´s ...

    Hi, there !

    A couple of day´s ago I swapped a very interesting German trench-knife of WW I.

    The maker is Backhaus, Solingen.

    This is a "sawback" and show´s 64 teeth.


    Some collector´s think, that the saw blade was meant to be used to cut barbed wire and the slot was designed to snap the wire (put the wire in the slot and twist).

    IMO this is not very practical ...

    But I heard, the signals preferred to use this kind of knife.

    Maybe some of you know´s more about it ?


    Cheers,

    R.
