Sales enquiries

Please note: This is NOT one of the thousands of falsely / post-war SS marked (normally brass cased) pantographic folding butterfly knifes. It is well documented that these knives existed in small numbers in WW2 Germany, mostly bearing the German Trademark (believed to be civilian knives). Of the few that surface from WW2 veteran's lockers / estates, the genuine article is all steel and always plain; this is one such knife. It is not clear who these knives were issued to / used by, but the rounded pin finales are said to have been designed to fit into a belt (through the belt holes). The military versions of these knives, such as this one, are believed to have been used by some airborne forces, or even aircrew. This vagueness of detail tells you how rare these items are.

12.9 cm blade, 22.2 cm total length. Everything solid and working. Yours for £500. Please quote item reference number H10. Full sized photos available upon request. Tube 22 (0.327)
