    For comparision, here´s the 2nd pattern, (last model), cord cutter-knife used in Para Units of the National People´s Army, (NVA, Nationale Volks-Armee der Deutschen, Demokratischen Republik), of the former GDR, (German Democratic Republic), manufactured in the GDR, and introduced in the late 80´s.

    GDR Para´s initially used a clone of the M1937 gravity knife of the Luftwaffe.

    In the 70´s the first pattern NVA Para cord cutter-knife with "stationary" blade was introduced and was made in Poland.

    This pattern cord cutter-knive was fixed underneath, (on the bottom), of the BE-8 Rettungsschirmes, (reserve chute).

    BTW, the "tip" of the blade is dull, but, I never, ever want to feel the extreme sharp blade of this cord cutter-knife on my throat ! ...

    Another WP-D -knife.

    AFAIK the name of the Para, owned the knife, is Nowak.

    As far I was told, the family of the polish Para was located in Przemysl.
    Were, (still are ?), any paratroopers units deployed in, or, near the town of Przemysl ?
