    Reibert,

    Thank you for the links you posted to my topic showing these, among others! The profiles of your 3 are VERY much like mine - do you think ANY of them were manufactured this way, or ar they all from repointing? If not for the scabbard, I'd almost think your top example was made by the same manufacturer as mine; my top "false edge" definitely looks like it's been added and NOT made this way. I jokingly assumed mine was done by its G.I. "liberator", unless the original Soldat owner was a fan of Karl May, like his Fuhrer. Since you're in Austria, I assume none of your examples were "liberated" by American G.I.'s, so I wonder if this kind of blade is at all common in Europe as it is in the U.S.? My photos are poor, but here's one repeated so you can compare them "side-by-side", so to speak:
