    This is my favorite pattern. I got one years ago. it's still my favorite. The sheath has an unusual configuration too. I had no idea who the maker was. Is this maker a guess or has it been seen in a period catalog?
    Thanks for showing it.

    Hi,

    please post images of your knife here in this thread !
    Does the scabbard of your knife looks like this one ?

    Regarding the maker:
    In the book "Deutsche Kampfmesser" by Eugen von Halasz the author mentions, that a copy of this knife with the imprinting G. FELIX, SOLINGEN upon the "Terz"-side, (the right side), of the blade, is known.

    Best,

    R.

ID:	248549 is somewhat similar to yours, but the leather does not go inside the sheath. Also, the strap on mine is longer and has a slit for a button on the back side. The condition is quite good, with much of the original black paint. The blade is bright. I hope you like it.

    MfG,

    Great knife, congrats !

    Itīs known, that such pattern knives were coming with a scabbard like yours !

    Thx. for posting !

    The scabbard with leather I showed in my #14 is a field repair, (I assume), and came with a trench knife, made by Backhaus.

    BTW, may I use your images of your knife to show them otherwhere ?
    Thx. in advance.

    As I mentioned, the maker probably is G. FELIX, SOLINGEN.

    This knives usually came with a scabbard, (note, the leather-strip wrapped around the "mouth" of the scabbard, thatīs typical for this pattern knife), you can see in the posting of CCMJR.

    Thereīre knives known, showing a black hilt and uncolored crossguard, also, kniveīs with field-grey hilt and black crossguard.
