    Pretty nice and rare gravity knife, congrats !

    The charge for manufacturing this clone of the Wehrmacht-Luftwaffe 1937-pattern gravity knife was accorded to the cutlery-factory of George Ibberson & Co.Ltd., Sheffield.
    Contracting authority: "Experimental Station 6", (an appropriate subbranch of the Ministry of supply), responsible for placing of orders for equipment for commando-troops.

    The first consignment had an size of order of 30.000 pcs., (no makers marks, stamped upon the blade !), others followed, (the logo of the maker, a violin, the lettering of the maker and C.O.S.D., for Command Supply Depot, and a number, stamped upon the blade).

    Also the company of Joseph Rogers in Sheffield was charged to manufacture such gravity knives.

    Ibberson and Rodgers manufactured app. 150.000 pcs., (quantity not confirmed), of this gravity knife.

    Very nice find indeed! Just out of curiosity what might the value be on such an item? If a monetary tag is possible.
