    I'm not a fan, but here's a nice long thread discussing the in's and out's involving this type and maker.

    https://www.warrelics.eu/forum/luftw...-knife-378961/

    Although as can be seen on reading it there were the odd one or two who liked it, but then it got the bad news on another forum and it all went a bit quiet then.

    Regards, Ned.

    As Big Ned says above. Also genuine lanyards are rare.Luftwaffe issue are 58 inch braided hemp and i believe there are about 4 patterns. Combine this with self made in the field ones and also private purchase things start to get complicated.

    Too many maybes for me, I would wait untill a nice one looker shows up, and the laynard is not original IMO after seeing real ones side by side with modern copies.

    The knife is, as has been exhaustively demonstrated, a copy. As for the lanyard, well does it matter, you're not going to just buy that are you?
