Germany WW2 Luftwaffe fighting knife LUFTWAFFEN-KAMPFMESSER boot dagger, proof-marked blade, orig “leaf spring” metal scabbard. Rare type in great overall condition.

Original WW 2 era German “LUFTWAFFEN-KAMPFMESSER” German Air Force fighting knife with original all-metal “boot carry” scabbard. This type was issued to the aircrews, as well s the German paratroopers; this knife was light, practical, and reliable in the field; and it was well-received.  This exact type is illustrated on pages 246-247, as well as in the center of the title page of the excellent French reference book Knives and Daggers-Bayonets Used by the German Army During 1914-1945 by Christian Mary (see the book’s scans attached).

Excellent shape overall; this Germany WW2 Luftwaffe fighting knife is in 100% serviceable condition still. This fighting knife is about 11-1/8” / 28.2 cm overall; the blade is about 6-5/8” / 17 cm long. The blade is stamped with “eagle 6” proof mark on ricasso.  The blade has been re-sharpened, no edge nicks; the tip is intact.  Hardwood handle scales are in great shape with no typical nicks or chips; a lanyard hole was apparently added in the field as this type was issued with “plain” wood handle scales. The iron handguard is nice and firm; all parts are tight with no play.  Original metal scabbard with the classic “leaf spring” for boot carry is in excellent shape;  the internal blade spring is tight and and holds the blade well. Original black finish on the scabbard is about 90% intact – this type is rare this nice.
