An important piece of equipment of the Devil's Brigade was the specially designed V-42 combat knife which was also part of the intensive close combat training. The handle of compressed leather discs ends in a pointed impact cap. A thick leather padding underneath the slightly curved pommel had to prevent injuries. The two-edged coated carbon steel blade of the dagger is made of SK5 and features a corrugated thumb rest around the area of the Ricasso. To this day the crest of the Special Forces of the US Army adorns this legendary dagger.
We not only deliver this exclusive collector's item with its classic leather sheath but also with a replica of the cloth insignia of the unit which is the red spearhead and with a reproduction of the original German sticker with the text "The worst is yet to come!". Additionally, it shows the 1st SSF label that used to be stuck on walls, cars, doors etc. behind enemy lines in order to demoralize the enemy. A premium collector's ensemble not only for aficionados of the military history!
Für Militärmessersammler hoch interessant und sehr gut verarbeitet!
Ich habe in den letzten 30 Jahren eine Vielzahl von Militärmessern gesehen und besessen, die Böker Modelle stehen für mich ganz oben in Originaltreue und Verarbeitung. Designbedingt nicht unbedingt erste Wahl um damit in den Wald zu gehen, aber ich hätte größtes Vertauen daß die auch "funktionieren". Interessant ist natürlich, das Boker USA im 2.Wk auch Messer für die US Streitkräfte gebaut hat.
