You are bidding on a VERY NICE example of a WW1 / WW2 German Heer Boot Knife / Close Combat Trench Knife! It comes complete with the original scabbard! This was brought back by a US Serviceman in 1945.
As bayonets were typically long and heavy, some soldiers ended up privately purchasing various styles of hunting knives. Throughout WW2, numerous manufactures produced these types of knives, available for both private purchase and military issue.
Made of wood and steel, this early-war German Combat Fighting Knife is in EXCELLENT condition considering it’s age. The blade does show some marks, stains, and wear, but nothing that detracts. Still retains the original leather washer. This would have been a WW1 knife that was re-issued in WW2, as it retains the Imperial Crown stamped into the blade. The scabbard is included, and is original to this knife. Interestingly, the US Serviceman scratched his name, “Sheppard” into the scabbard (as well as a symbol). Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!

——————- TERMS OF SALE —————–
Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
