    Hey guys,
    My first fighting knife arrived today. Very excited! I just wanted to get some of your opinions on it. The only mark on it is a small "S". Is this an inspection mark?
    Also, what are your thoughts on the scabbard? There is hardly a mark on it.
    Any comments are much appreciated Luftwaffen KampfmesserLuftwaffen KampfmesserLuftwaffen KampfmesserLuftwaffen Kampfmesser

    Very nice knife. I also have one marked with an 'S' (http://www.warrelics.eu/forum/dagger...-knife-209089/). When I researched the 'S' I found that the common consensus was that it was a manufacturer, but could not find any further info other than that.

    Hi !

    Your knive looks a little bit sharpened and "cleaned" ...
    Anyway, itīs an legit one !

    Such "boot-kniveīs" were in use in units of the "WL" in itīs "Feld-Divisionen", ("field-divisionīs"), and the "Fliegendem Personal", ("flying personell").

    Also units of the Wehrmacht-Heer used this fighting-knife !

    The Fighting-knife of the "WL" is known with the marks, ("Luftwaffe acceptance-mark"): "Eagle 5", or, "Eagle 6".
    Also the letter "W", or, "S", marked on the blade.
    Thereīre also Luftwaffe fighting-kniveīs without any marks.

    Some collectors believe, that the "W" and the "S" are the shortcut for makers.

    Rgds.,
