Description

You are bidding on a VERY RARE used example of a WW2 German Heer Boot Knife / Close Combat Trench Knife!   Made by PUMA, it comes complete with the original scabbard!

 As bayonets were typically
long and heavy, some soldiers ended up privately purchasing various styles of
hunting knives.
  Throughout WW2, numerous manufacturers produced these types of knives, available for both private purchase and military issue.

 

Made of wood and steel, this late-war Puma German Combat Fighting Knife is in EXCELLENT condition considering its age.  The blade does show some marks, stains, and wear, and does have a slightly sharpened edge, but it does not detract.  Sadly, there is a crack in the wood, as you can see in the photos.  The scabbard is original to this knife, but it does feature some marks and wear (clip is also missing).  PUMA is clearly stamped into the blade, and it features their signature style handle.  Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!
