Fallschirmjager Gravity Knife - 1st Type

Hi guys, here is a highly collectible item related to the Fallschirmjager. Not strictly tropical related but used in all theaters including the African.

The maker is SMF Solingen, one of the most common makers to see in these knives. I really liked this example because of the initials of the soldat engraved on the wood.

Prost
Chris

Hi bro, thanks.

Yes what i really like on these knives is to be engraved with the soldier's name or initials.

I will post my second type soon.
