A scarce, original example of a WW2-vintage DUTCH fighting knife in very good condition. Ribbed, solid wood handle, with 8 steel blade which has grayed with age, but remains undamaged. Both the blade ricasso and the ferrule above the cross-guard are marked with the "Crown-Z" logo of the Netherlands. The scabbard appears to be of German manufacture, but it fits like a glove and may even be original-to-the-piece.
It remains in very good condition also, with surface wear and paint loss commensurate with modest field use.
