WW2 Germany Luftwaffe fighting knife LUFTWAFFEN-KAMPFMESSER boot dagger, original “trench camo” painted metal scabbard; very good overall condition, considering the age.
Hard-to-find original WW2 era German “LUFTWAFFEN-KAMPFMESSER” German Air Force fighting knife with original all-metal “boot carry” scabbard. The dagger is in very good shape overall; this Germany WW2 Luftwaffe fighting knife is in 100% serviceable condition still. 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). I have a similar LUFTWAFFEN-KAMPFMESSER but in much-better condition, please take a look.
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 Luftwaffe “eagle 5” proof mark on ricasso. The blade in in great shape with no pitting with original gray patina throughout; the blade is razor-sharp still. No edge nicks or dings on the spine; the tip is intact. Original hardwood handle scales are in great shape with no typical nicks or chips; the pins have been field-replaced with tiny brass nuts and bolt; all parts are tight. Original metal scabbard with the classic “leaf spring” for boot carry is in great shape; but the internal blade spring within the scabbard has been removed. The scabbard is field-painted with OD-green camo paint over the original black finish.
Almost 80 years later this original WW2 Germany Luftwaffe fighting knife is in 100% serviceable condition still – this type is hard-to-find nowadays. In general, most of Luftwaffen-Kampfmessers were used in the field as intended; specimens in better grades are hard to find nowadays – this WW2 Germany Luftwaffe fighting knife will be a great addition to any collection. This attractive original WW2 Germany Luftwaffe fighting knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way, it is in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos; Mauser K98 clips are not included with the knife 😉
