ID:	328437I also have a WWII German boot knife that I purchased from an ad in Shotgun News back in 1986. On one side it has a partially ground off German eagle/swastika and the other side has 'hat 1941' stamped on it. The story was that a large cache of boot knives were found in Norway and the authorities mandated that the swastika be ground off in order for the knives to enter the market. So they did a quick 'cursory' grinding, leaving most of the eagle and swastika intact. Up until now, I always believed that I had an authentic German boot knife. The length is 11 inches overall.

    Man, these are nice. Simple and clean design; less IS more.
    Too bad, if the shortie is a fake (if thats whats meant by 'Bubba work'), as it looks handy and almost like a moden woodlore knife.

    Yes, thereīre many fighting knives found in Skandinavia after the war actually, ("Kampfmesser PUMA", also the dutch "Stormdolk").

    IMO your "Infanteriemesser 42" is a fake, sorry ...

    Yes, that sounds peculiar. I know they found a Heinkel 219 at Karup (the only surviving one and now at the Udvar-Hazy), but fighting knives.....?

    After the surrender of the Wehrmacht in Norway stocks of "PUMA" fighting knives, and dutch "Stormdolks" were found.

    Some very good items have come out of Scandinavia. Which I think may have been due to German forces leaving there with just the clothes on their backs (more or less) at the end of the war. With even places like Sweden which was technically neutral also providing items. With years ago, a good friend of mine getting some rare Walther P-38 pistols and other items in trades with Swedish collectors. FP
