    This knife is much more like the USN Divers knife, and much different than the knife in the first post...

    What are the thoughts of you hard core knife guys on the original knife?

    Agreed on the first comment. The original German knives are very much like the US versions. Virtually identical in appearance but for the brass handle instead of wood. There were a handful of makers. Henckels as another example. All of the original knives that I have seen and handled were of that ilk. There is a decent period photograph of one of these knives in-wear that appears in one of Johnson's reference books (not sure which volume). The knife in the original post is a fantasy piece in my opinion. I like nothing about it .....
