    Hi its the best of both worlds really it features the early maker marked blade with the later take down feature. Rostfrei on the blade means rust free in german which means it is made from stainless steal.
    Usually the take down models feature rzm codes but this one would have been an earlier one using up the first model parts most likely.
    SMF is one of the more common found makers for gravity knives, early luftwaffe swords and daggers.
    Very nice.
    Now whats the asking price please? matty

    IMO a Pakistani fake, the Kings nose is wrong as is the sword, and the stick bird is too fat. Avoid.

    Didn't the Pakistani gravity knives have copper rivets?

    Not necessarily a Pakistani copy, but a copy just the same. As Ned has said, the king's nose, and the vertical lines on the clothing do not come down far enough to touch the horizontal line at the bottom.

    Im not sure about the rest of the knife but the blade looks suspect.It has a modern brushed look to it.Also the words on the blade look doubtful.An original knife but with a repro blade possibly?

    Could be a replacement blade Lew. I cant wait to get home to blow this one up on the big screen, but I can see a stickbird mark, numbers etc etc. The copper rivets are usually the giveaway but they don't look copper. Unless it has replacement rivets? Not impossible I don't suppose.
    Check the blade, see if its non magnetic? You'll soon know if the whole thing feels light or not.
    The giveaway signs will be there somewhere.

    ps. I wish people would give a price when they put these things on here.
    Its the first indication to whether to spend the time even looking.

    I would doubt it, why would someone use an original and de-value it by putting a known repro blade in it.
    Just my thoughts,
