    The Henckels i had came with a black leather hanger, ive seen early Henckels & other makers come with brown or black scabbard hangers, some get swapped over by the hj boys & vets ect imo, this hanger is stamped with oakleaf & LFS which i believe is the logo for the company that made the leather hangers.

    Matty the earliest ones are found in brown leather and with only 1 inside scabbard spring.
    Im sure this one belongs to this knife, as ive seen 1 completely identical, also in mint condition in Belgium.

    Ive done some reseach regarding this oakleave L F.S marking on the strap.
    This was the major supplyer of the leather straps used on these scabbards, and can be found on numerous makers.
    Ive build a small database with different makers and when i have enough i will post it.

    So far i have found just one possible leather factory that could fit the L.F.S. markings, but i cant find the oakleave logo on other products of this company.

    Lederwerk
    Sedina
    Finkenwalde

    this is one of those things that can take years before proof can be found, but i will try...

    Cheers,
