Large example of the hunting knives produced in the early 20th century, many of which served as trench knives as, lacking the foresight to anticipate the stalemate of trench warfare, knives were not issued German infantry. This example specifically relating to the War as the blade is marked simply SOLINGEN, in defiance of international standards requiring MADE IN and country of origin. Additionally, the blade root has a thumb recess for the clandestine throat slash grip. Large deer foot grip. 10” length. Proper and probably original scabbard marked MADE IN GERMANY with inked names to the back. Best example we’ve offered.
