First of all, I would like to say that I do not know anything about old knives like this one.

I purchased this at a local shop beacuse I thought that it might be a WWII knife, and might be historically important.

For Ebay's sake let me make it clear, that this is NOT an Nazi knife or item.

It took me forever to find out that indeed this was a rare German knife, but from the 1950's. T are two versions of this knife. This one is the RARE Hard-to-Find model. The more easy-to-find common model has a larger hand guard. These sell for $50 or more on Ebay. ( Please seach completed sales, you will see it's true )

This is what I have been able to find out. If any of this information is in error, please let me know so I can make the corrections. This is a highly-collectable Black Forest Hunting Knife, hand-forged in Germany by Korium . It is made out of the highly prized Solingen Steel (SS). They are carefully weighted and balanced since they were made as throwing knives.

T are three different knives put out by the manufacturer. The other two feature a naked woman on the handle and an eagle on the other.
