    Default (Polish) NVA cord cutter knife

    Hi, mates !

    Bought this, heavilly worn, NVA cord cutter knife today.

    Very interesting the, upon the blade, (electric) engraved Number 0/57 !
    Anybody know´s, what´s the meaning of this number ? ...

    This Kappmesser was manufactured in Poland for use in the NVA of the former GDR.

    Thx. in advance,
    R.

    I've noticed these knives with a number stamped into the wooden grip rather than an engraving, maybe a quartermasters ID number?....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Gunny,

    the reserve, (emergency), chute had an internal number.
    The cord cutter knife was assigned the chute, (corresponding number), not to the Para !

    Sometimes the number of the reserve chute was painted upon the hilt of the cord cutter knife, sometimes burnt in.

    Most of such knives aren´t showin´ any numbers ...

    I´m not sure that the engraved number on my cord cutter knife is such a number ? ...

    Received another one of these, polish manufactured, cord cutter -knives, used in the NVA of the, former, GDR.
    Not that really scarce, but, pretty collectible even though !
