Thanks Andy for your reply. Im not very knowledgeable of German Navy ordnance marks but would assume the Wa stands for Hasag, Hugo Schneider AG, Abteilung Lampenfabrik, Leipzig. Maybe some of the forum members could enlighten us as to the numbers 886. Im thinking that your knife might be one of a kind made on board by a navy machinist out of cannon shell of some sort.

hi bama
thanks for your import and intresting opinion i have to agree and disagree on two different wording could have been made by a machinist on board the sub 886 if there was such a numbered sub i dont think it was made out of a cannon shell by a machinest i believe it was made with the W.K.C. company with thier knights logo it would be hard for any machinest to engrave that knights logo same as kens knife and last i do believe its a one of a kind made untill some one comes up with another then there is to that exists thanks you very much for your help god bless andy militarynut
