- SO,, it appears as a fixed blade.


does not fold, the blade retracts into the handle like the G. Hammesfahr Nr. 7043. There is a button near the pommel to release the blade.

has a silver-blade cover, to convert the knife to a silver blade fruit knife. - very rare knife also came with the original leather sheath.


- * So the button releases the blade to the extra / actual full-length blade.. That,is a very nice piece, thanks for the treat of showing us!...,Gaspare

I posted 7 Dec. 2022 on page 1 of this thread:

"This probably early 20th century wood handle Verlangerungsmesser was posted by Colin Davis on 6/10/2007 as "Unknown German hunting knife" on German Daggers.com. The bolster is marked "Gesetzlich Geschutzt" (Legally Protected) with an anchor in between. The term "Gesetzlich Geschutzt" is 1899 or later. Note that this model has a spear blade which is probably before 1945."

On 10 April 2024 one of these Verlangerungsmesser sold on the popular auction site for $229.50 + $10.50 S+H. The blade is marked "GESETZL. GESCHUTZT" over "No 354". Seller notes "The front bolster (ferrule) locks the blade open. The rear bolster (ferrule) locks the blade closed."

This locking device is probably why the bolster is marked "Gesetzlich Geschutzt" (Legally Protected) with an anchor in between. I did not bid on this example; the blade is in good condition with some nicks and the sheath was in poor condition, missing part of the sheath.

***Note that the handle could be horn and not wood. The seller did not note handle material.
