Continuing on from the excellent thread on WW1 Fighting Knives started by Chris…

http://gmic.co.uk/index.php/topic/56870-ww1-fighting-knives-and-officer-bayonets/

.… I thought a look at those produced during WW2 would be of interest.

So… if you have any in the collection, please post them.

1st up is the Luftwaffe ‘boot knife’

This Fighting/utility boot knife was obtained from a veteran many years ago. He was an engineer and, as the story goes, took it off a very bedraggled "SS pioneer" at the time of capture.

A story is a story, but the date stamp (1944) use of late war metal and simulated wodden staghorn grips combined with a factory stamped unit designation, and proper style of armourer stampings found on the piece led me to believe his story.
