    A bit rough, but it does appear to be an authentic Infantriemesser 42, with replaced home made wood grips and some blade length lost as well.

    Wow what a shame to see ...in this condition.

    Was this a ground find ?

    No, it was brought from Germany recently, and was on a flea market along side with some old instruments ( obviously was forgotten in some German workshop or barn...)

    Im considering making of new grips and used it for re-enactment as it is not in collectible condition..

    Looks like it has had a lot of post war use. Could have been a farmers knife.
