    Rare Original Bulgarian Communist Army Paratrooper Knife & Scabbard
    This is the only info i could find!....
    update if the link disappears......."We are offering an original paratrooper knife that was an integral part of Bulgarian military parachute equipment. It was made and used in 1970s -1980s . It is intended for cutting the ropes when necessary. Considering the small number of paratroopers in Bulgarian Army and later the destroying of this equipment according to the military statute, it is very difficult to find such knifes. "
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Thanks for sharing this - first time I've ever seen one - and I have to say, I really like it..

    (On a side note - not quite what I was expecting - I was drawn here wondering why someone would make a knife specifically for cutting shrouds of the dead!.......Silly me)

    Cheers
