A World War II German fighting knife with a 6 3/4 inch blade that bears the Luftwaffe ordnance issue waffen amt on the ricasso. The blade is generally bright with some spots. The wood grips, secured by three domed rivets, show age but are in very good condition and are without chips or cracks, although the original owner scratched his initial (the letter "B") into the grip. The steel scabbard retains more than 90% of its original black paint and is fitted with a spring clip to fasten the knife to gear or to the inside of a boot.
