Original German Army Paratrooper Gravity Knife made by Eichhorn. These were issued to elite German paratroopers who needed a knife that could be operated with one hand in the event of an accident. An excellent made knife, with the olive drab grip panel marked "BUND" so that you know its an original. This is a really well made knife, and they sell for twice our price at most other retailers.
Each knife features:
- Folding marlin spike, originally designed to offer paratroopers a method to untangle tight knots
- Olive drab "BUND" marked handle
- Blade engraved by "OFW"
- Blade measures approximately 4" and overall length of the knife is approximately 10"
- Blade extended and retracts by using the lever on the knife and gravity.
- Check local laws before ordering!
Please note: these knives were actually used by the German military. You may receive a knife that has been sharpened, has minor nicks, or shows others signs of use. All knives however are guaranteed to function reliably regardless of overall condition. You are actually owning a piece of history!
