    Known as 'Electrician's knife'. These are still being made
    ( copied ), but I think this one's ok, seeing wear/usage.

    If not too expensive - maybe $15-$20
    it's worth it.........
    Regards,

    My thoughts exactly. I bought the same knife in a German hardware store for dm11.95 in 1999. Lost it though, dang it was a handy knife. The steel held a nice edge, but would rust rather easily.

    There was never an issue pocket knife given to the troops. Individual soldiers carried their own private purchase knives. I have one that was in box full of a veterans souvenirs. The man confirmed he took it from a surrendering prisoner.

    There was a cable knife issued to troops - both Pioneer and communications if I am not mistaken. The photo shows some typical Nachrichten equipment. The cable knife I believe to be a post war example but nearly identical to WWII type. I have one WWII type cable knife but no photos of it at present. And yes, this type of knife was copied. The copies have a cheap plating on the blade that peels off. NH
