    Default Luftwaffe boot knife?

    This knife came up for sale at a local country auction recently, and I sprung at it. Now, I will be the first to admit that I don’t know much about these knives and so I’d like to get the groups opinion about whether it’s genuine or not. It has only the one mark on it, a droop-winged eagle with number 6. Thanks!

    An original in nice condition.
    The ones marked with a 6 are of a slightly better construction that those marked with a 5, IMO.

    Yes, they are.

    I probably paid a little too much for it.
    Still looking for one marked with a "W".

    If I come across a “W” marked one for sale, I’ll be sure to let you know. It can’t hurt to have another set of eyes looking!
