Reproduction German Paratrooper Gravity Knife

Product Details

New Reproduction German Paratrooper Gravity Knife "take-down model". These were used by German Paratroopers during WWII to free themselves from tangled parachutes and there cords. These knives were made in two versions this is the "take-down model" meaning that the knife can be disassembled, however there really is no need to do so. The blade is released by the trigger on the side of the handle and slides in and out using gravity they are not spring loaded, the side houses an awl for untangling knots. The but end futures a swivel loop that is used to attach a lanyard. The handles are a nicely sanded walnut wood and they are RB numbered on the awl.
These are by fare the best reproductions on the market.

How to Use: To release the blade hold the knife in the upside down position and push the trigger forward when the blade is all the way out let go of the trigger it will lock the blade in place. To put the blade in follow the same steps but hold the knife upright.

Measurements: Closed blade 6 1/16 inches, Full Length blade open 10 inches. Most of them vary a little but only by 1 or 2mm.

Warning: The blades are sharpened. Also most of these are not perfect and can have a nick or dent in the handle. When fully extended the blades can have a little play in them.

The parts are not interchangeable with originals they are off by a hair so please do not think you will be using these parts to fix your original. If you try this you will most likely break it.
