Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgLuftwaffe flight crew gravity knife with an original cord lanyard. This example is manufactured by Stocker & Co, Solingen and has the seated king mark as well as SMF. These knives are sometimes referred to as paratrooper or fallshirmjäger knives but this is incorrect and in fact they were issued to all flight crew.

Hitler Youth Knife

Posted in Daggers with tags , , , on November 28, 2010 by The Dude

Flag_of_the_NSDAP_(1920–1945).svgHere is a Hitler Youth knife that I obtained from Colorado. It’s in absolutely mint condition. In fact if it wasn’t for the RZM tag still attached to the belt loop I would have said it was too good to be true. As it is this is about as good as it gets except if perhaps there is a mottoed blade out there somewhere.

Both the blade and the tag on the sheath are RZM marked M7/13 indicating the knife was made by Arthur Schüttelhoffer & Company from Solingen-Wald.
