I believe it is called a Ferrell. you can usually find a couple on Victorymilitaria
Its possible the POW took the ferrule ring off himself and squeezed the ring wider open to fit it on his finger as a momento of his Luft service. Hard to prove that story..but sounds nice Other than the missing ferrule rind..overall the dagger is in decent condition which exhibits the dual twisted wire. I have seen both the dual twisted wire and the commonly seen aluminum springy wire on these grips. Hard to say if this grip belongs or not. Still I nice find with portepee and hangers. Regards Larry
