    Default Yugoslavian fighting knife.

    I want to show you a yugoslavian fighting knife from 1950s.
    The knife itself is the copy of the world war 2 used soviet NR40recon knife, but in this case, the yugoslavian copy has a way better quality.
    There are several stamps on blade, sheath,hanger,and on the grip, see photos.
    Due to the fact, that this is a rare knife, unfortunatelly i dont know too much about it, there arent any informations on internet, so lets discuss it here

    Hi !

    Weeks ago I bought this, heavy used, yugoslav 1951 pattern combat knive.

    The seller was a, former, member of an bosnian recon unit in the yugo civil war.

    As far as I know the No. 69 stands for Military workshop No.69, Zagreb, Croatia

    To contribute to this topic...

    In the book "Hladno oružje Srbije, Crne Gore i Jugoslavije 19-20 vek" (Melee /cold (steel) weapons of Serbia, Montenegro and Yugoslavia 19th-20th century) by Branko Bogdanović, you can find this lovely illustration (page 143):

    Yugoslavian fighting knife. Yugoslavian fighting knife.

    And on pages 48-49 the text says that after WW2, hand to hand combat got special attention and was under Soviet influence. At the beginning of the 1960s, the Army got a new homemade knife (kama) M.1951 (j), based on the Soviet army knife (NR)40.
    The price of a single M51 knife was 25 dinara (cca 7 DEM), according to a price list from 1.7.1970.
    It was meant for the soldiers (fighters) belonging to scout, saboteur and paratrooper units.
    Its fiery baptism was 4 decades after being made (by then regarded as old, and mostly given to units of the Territorial defense - Teritorijjalna obrana /TO/), in the hands of the enemy of the Yugoslav People's Army (JNA).
    During a brief conflict (The Ten-Day War), in June 1991, the Territorial defense issued this knife to all soldiers/fighter who were issued the M56 submachine gun - because of lack of M56 bayonets

    The last paragraph mentions a navy knife with a braid for the knife ("nož mornarski sa gajtanom za nož") and a brief description.

    *I added some information purely for a better understanding and context. All of this can be verified in the book.

    Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but I thought more info could be useful for other collectors.

    Kind regards
