If its real very rare and desirable knife!
(and as such subject to fakery) i do like what I see in the knife, but can you get better pics of the scabbard.

the edges were designed for razor sharp cutting, like a straight razor. But this also made the edge very fragile, and could break if used to pry something.

Looks like it was made yesterday, which does not make it a fake. I do not like it.

Agreeing with another poster on the re-issue of these in the 90's. They did a great job on those and now with light age they are slipping into the market like alot of the 1950's-60's collectors items made to fill in the spots of those collections. I have seen the D-Day clickers that came out a few years ago by the same manufacture now at the shows as originals with some nice wear and rust on the springs. Always a game of "Cat and Mouse" and now even more I see collectors drop out of favor of their collections due to the struggles of keeping 1 step ahead of the restrikes. I know some of us as dealers look at large collections and if we see one bad thing the WHOLE collection goes under scrutiny. It's ashame but true atleast at my store. I am glad people get on this site (Myself included) to keep up to date and use it as a reassuring tool for their collections and items they are interested in purchasing. Keeps the community alittle bit cleaner for all of us and more educated along the way.

Notice how the "thumbprint" on the knife in question doesnt extend completly to the edges of the ricasso ? Pommel doesnt appear to be pinned either . Both indications of post war production. Again JMO.
