Hi there,

I recently inherited these https://imgur.com/a/DcjzYdD pocket knives from my grandfather who was a pretty avid collector of militaria.

Just wondering if anyone can help in identifying them to let me know if they're legitimate and of any value?

Big thanks in advance to anyone who can help.

Welcome, RCX, to GDC.

Sorry to tell you they are of post war manufacture and have no collector value. You might trade for a pint or two down the pub, but that's it.

thanks for the info, good to know. I figured this was probably the case after reading up on how there were a lot of these sorts of things made after WW2.

Appreciate the help.

there were nazi theme pocket knives for sale pre war early on.. I saw them in a period catalog once with all the other 'kitsch' , cigg cases, watch fobs, rings, etc. Sorry but don't remember what they looked like... Keep searching you might find something on the net..
