    Did in fact this knife existed during the civil war and ww2, or can it be a modern mockup? I have seen a few diferent designs and none of them is like this one.
    Thanks fella`s.
    Cheers.

    Hi Dean, it is a spanish youth falange dagger, iv have seen a few of them, with wooden handle, diamond with the spanish flag.
    But this one is completely diferent.
    Im very close to buy a spanish youth uniform, and i was looking for a knife to match.

    Im my opinion this is an original example, however does not carry the motto, but is extremely well made. a quality finish.
    The previous looks to have been messed with.
    But i also have been told they also used one with a diamond shaped spanish flag.

    Hi, guys:

    Wikipedia says: "The Yoke and the Bundle of Arrows or the Yoke and Arrows (Spanish: '''el yugo y el haz de flechas' or 'el yugo y las flechas''') is a Spanish badge dating back to the Spanish co-monarchy of Ferdinand II of Aragon and Isabella I of Castile. It served as the symbol of the shield of the monarchy of Ferdinand and Isabella and subsequent Catholic monarchs, representing a united Spain and the 'symbol of the heroic virtues of the race'. In the 20th century, the yoke and arrows became a political symbol of the fascist Falange political movement in Spain."

    The motto Arriba Espania (Let Spain arise) definitely goes back to the Nationalist revolt of 1936 and hence to the Falange.

    I haven't been in Spain since Franco died, but I have an idea that the yoke and arrow motif is still used by the Spanish Army.

    Maybe our Spanish members can clarify, or tell me when it was dropped.

    Cheers,

    Pat
