    Default german fighting knife

    hello guys,

    i need some help here... i've been offered this german fighting knife. Got these pictures from the seller (not the best pictures). the grip looks a bit to clean for me... but the scabbard looks bad... (different parts?) the blade is maked with the anton wingen logo but arent the knives only made by puma and boker?

    thanks guys!

    knife looks ok to me and so the scabbard. These knives usually have a LW waffenamt, can you ask for a maker marking picture?

    Try to get pics without the confusing background.

    i agree, the dead zebra on the back is a bit confusing
    what is the value of these knives these days?

    thanks

    Don't know but will check with some people around here (south Florida-I leave for Canada in 2 weeks). There is a post about the SS Nord Division in Karelia with some pics of excavated stuff and in one ther appears to be the hilt of a knife similar to yours.

    IMO this knife is a fake !

    There´re similar knive´s, showing the Wingen-Logo and, (marked on the reverse side of the blade), an RB-No., (Reichsbetriebs-Nummer).

    "Kampfmesser der Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe" alway´s show three rivets in the grip and the groove´s in the grip-plates are completely different !

    I think Reibert has a sharp eye. I overlooked that detail but he's actually right.
    I don't know if the knife is fake though, but indeed we would need closer and more detailed pics

    i think the scabbard is real but the knife looked a bit tricky to me. Thanks for your opinions guys, i pass on this one. greetings Eddy

    If you look at the second pic of the Nord Div Karelia post just below the helmets on the right side you can make out a knife hilt with 3 rivets.
