Per Ed's request, I will post pictures of my CJ Krebs 2nd Lufts.

Note that at one time, I also owned a 1st Luft and a Voos style etched 1st Luft (now for sale on Tom Wittmann's site) by CJ Krebs.

1st up is this large double oval marked 2nd Luft.

This has a small single oval etch, but also sports a Voos style etched blade.

That's it, all I have in CJ Krebs at this time.

All from -Kronenkrebs- (crown crab) maker but you, JohnZ are the true and real king of crabs!
Very nice collection, thank you for the extra effort of showing them in a separate thread.

Yes, thank you much.
A super collection.
Love that small single.
Thank you
Ed

PS: John, I have looked at that First Luft on TW many times.
I can only drool, and think how many firearms I would have to sell to own one.

Hello JohnZ, just looked into a dictionary Krebs=crab. Sorry if this is unsuitable. Perhaps -king of crawfishes-?

Just a quick Thanks again for showing your Krebs Luft's. I look at them often.
A super collection, all of them.
Still not sure of the one I will be hunting for first. They are all nice.
Hope to make the Ohio show in April to get started.
Thanks again

Have not seen you in many yrs but want to say you always have super stuff and your pics are nice!

You have any frozen juice or what they call glass handles? I always loved those!

The trademark on their SA daggers is similar to the Luftwaffe example above.
