6/24/21 - This is an original Luftwaffe Gravity knife from WW2. The blade is in excellent condition with a Rostfrei maker marking on one side. The release lever functions without issue. The wood handle has no cracks or chips. The spike is Luftwaffe proof stamped on the base. A very nice example. The price is reduced due to the spring lever pivot not being numbered, and the rivet on the release lever is replaced. This is likely a post-war repaired knife.
