    Default Paul Weyersberg & Co Fallschirmjager Gravity Knife

    Hello all,

    I have an opportunity to pick up this gravity knife. It looks ok to me but the very small proof mark on the spike end is TINY and is throwing me for a loop. Any ideas why this mark is so small?

    Thanks,

    Doug

    The blade, to me, looks to be sharpened.

ID:	784401 Hello Doug don't know if this helps but here is a macro shot of the stick bird on the marlin spike of my weyersberg gravity kinife. Looks similar to the one on the knife you are interested in. I too feel the knife is OK but as you mentioned been somewhat heavily sharpened but the blade logo is clearly visible. If the price was good i wouldn't let it bother me. But please wait for others response before making up your mind. In any event happy new year and good luck

    IMO...From my experience the Weyersberg model had a smaller stamp versus the SMF model in which I have. I see no issues with it. These were not dress pieces so much like a Hitler Youth knife they were a field used piece. As mentioned these are usually sharpened and scuffed up a bit. I would ask if the spring mechanism on release works in it. Most of the time it doesn't and hard to find them with a spring functioning. Your call on that but hope this helps. Happy New Year!

    Appreciate the help guys! The knife looked good to me but always have to get a second opinion! The lady wants $325, what do you guys think?

    IMO how bad do you want one and if condition is not key I would say $275 to $325 sounds fair if spring works which allows clip to lock and release blade. I know dealers have them for $700 to $1000 depending on condition. Really your call.

    Doug my thoughts were exactly the same as Mr Rossi $275 would be great if the locking mechanism is functional. It also appears to have a chip out of the wood grip in the first photo? Again it wouldn't personally bother me but may also affect the value. Otherwise best of luck with the acquisition! Best regards.

    That's a great buy IMHO. Mine is a takedown version in a worse condition and it was more than that. Also as Rossi notes, these were often heavily used and often sharpened.

    And, if the spring is not broken, don't be tempted and go playing with it. They tend to break..

    Guys, thank you for all your input. I have been wanting one of these but i always double check when I can, as I have made multiple mistakes based on impulse.
