Luftwaffe fighting-knife

Postby Reibert-Austria » 09 Feb 2013 11:17

Hi, mates !

Wanna show you a "Kampfmesser der Wehrmacht Luftwaffe".

Such "boot-knive´s" were in use in units of the "WL" in it´s "Feld-Divisionen", ("field-division´s"), and the "Fliegendem Personal", ("flying personell").

Also units of the Wehrmacht-Heer used this fighting-knife !

The Fighting-knife of the "WL" is known with the marks, ("Luftwaffe acceptance-mark"): "Eagle 5", or, "Eagle 6".
Also the letter "W", or, "S", marked on the blade.
There´re also Luftwaffe fighting-knive´s without any marks.

Some collectors believe, that the "W" and the "S" are the shortcut for makers.

Rgds.,

R.
