Knife for Luftwaffe by DAIMLER-BENZ ? Good or Fake ?

Post by David76 » 20 Dec 2019 14:04

Hello
I found this knife. I am doubts about the authenticity. Do you have more information about it ?
Silver RZM stamped Luftwaffe pocket knife with 2 blades. It reads "DAIMLER-BENZ-P. SCHICHAU ELBING". Reverse side bears the Luftwaffe eagle
Reproduction or not ?
There is a mark RZM but not compatible with the luftwaffe ! I saw several same pictures on the net but no addiontal information.
The quality seems to be really good and probably with silver on each side.
Many thanks for your comments.
Bests Regards
David

David, sorry, but the knife is a fantasy piece, poor quality, Hokey RZM marking, doubt there's any "silver" but not 3rd Reich no matter.
