4/5/18 - This is an original WW1 era production German boot knife with an Imperial proof stamp. One side is proof stamped and the reverse side is Gottlieb Hammesfahr Solingen stamped. The blade has some discoloration and spottiness, but overall is in great condition. The wood grips are excellent and completely in tact. The scabbard is black painted and has minor chips but this is normal. No dents on the scabbard. Guaranteed original.
