    It's certainly a sailor's type knife, with the rigging spike and all, but what makes you attribute it to the Kriegsmarine?

    Wishful thinking on the part of the seller, I'm thinking. Almost certainly,a KM knife would have KM markings, I would imagine.

    I believe it is British 'Wade & Butcher Sheffield, England'.
    Don't know why it has a DRGM stamp.........!

    I thought they were one and the same !

    I suspect it is likely a copy of the
    RN knife, made pre-war.........

    Looks very similar to British and Austrslian issue knives, they too are called jack knives but have a flat pressed metal handle with similar attachments.....

    The story goes that these knives were issued to cavalry and light horse, the spike being used to clean horses hooves....thay are still issued in the Australian army
