    Hello



    I would like to show you the two principal different models of M-17. The difference is in the size of " handguard" ( sorry but i dont know how to tell in english).
    The Austrian manufacture M-17 have shorter lenght handguart then an Hungarian one. The Hungarian one has also on the handguard embossed coat of arms.
    Sorry but all my collection is based on relic .

    Greetings .....Sašo
    There is absolutely nothing wrong with collecting relics, so there is no need to apologise. Nice items!

    Default Checkered Wooden Handled Leupold Variant.

    Greetings all,

    Over 5K views for this thread… I am humbled and frankly, delighted to see such interest in Central Powers’ knives… many thanks for the views. This week, another unmarked “Leupold” variant with a 146mm long blade. This distinctive variant possesses a fine checkered pattern on its wooden slabs’ handles. As seen on page 32 of Christian Méry’s, German combat knives: 1914-1945. Paris: Histoire & Collections, 2011. These checkered styled Leupolds also came in a metal handled variant with a similar patterned checkering upon the grips. This week’s photos are in the “close but no cigar” category, yet they are still worthy of sharing. Until next week, happy hunting!

    Regards,

    Lance

    Default Another private purchase; Aufpflanzbarer Grabendolch or Fixable Trench Knife variant.

    Greetings all,

    As the post’s title says, this is another example of the (many available) private purchase fixable trench knife variants to come out during the war. This example is actually beefy enough to serve as a bayonet without being overly fragile (as many similar examples appear). The unmarked blade’s length is 157mm. Until next week and I hope your collection is going well too!

    Regards,

    Lance
