    Default Luftwaffe boot knives - my collection

    Hi, finaly i finished my Luftwaffe boot knife collection. There are all known variants with this marking on the blade:

    1) Luftwaffe acceptance stamp eagle 5
    2) Luftwaffe acceptance stamp eagle 6 (i have two pieces)
    3) Luftwaffe acceptance stamp eagle 5 from one side and from the other side is etched RBNr. 0/0561/0020. It is code for Weyersberg factory. This is the only one known original RBNr. marking on this Luftwaffe boot knife. Exactly the same style marking was also used on gravity knife type II.
    4) Acceptance stamp letter S
    5) Acceptance stamp lette W

    These all markings were used for these knives. Also exists original pieces without any marking on the blade, what we can consider as sixth variation of this knife.

    There are of course also a lot of fakes/copies on the market. But they are not so good quality like original pieces and they have mostly bad markings like "hat1942" or logo of "Anton Wingen" and bad RBNr. 0018 on the other side of blade.

    Fabie , "20" is Paul Weyersberg and is shown above in photo. RBNr 0/0561/0019 is believed to be SMF code.

    Yes, I was wrong in writing, I confirm your words Anderson.
    In fact it is the same RBNr code as the Kappmessers.

    I wonder if the S of Luft knives doesn't mean 5.

    Cordially.
