For your consideration is a nice original WW2 era enlisted mans German RAD Hewer by Carl Jul Krebs. These RAD Hewer‘s are fairly scarce and are among the lesser seen among the many types of German military daggers. They have a very distinct look and feel and are nothing like the other types of German daggers. It was an odd choice to reserve such a unique and beautiful dagger type for enlisted men in the RAD, but the Germans over-engineered everything so I guess it should be of no surprise. This is a nice solid piece with honest age and wear. These knives were carried by RAD men at all times and were meant to be used, which is why they often show much more wear than than other German daggers. The Carl Jul Krebs makers mark is well executed and is still nice and clear. The blade was sharpened by the original owner or the vet many years ago. The blade is very solid however and is in nice shape. A little staining throughout, and some very light surface pitting from the blade making contact with the runners in the scabbard. Most of the nickel plating is left on the grip with wear throughout creating a nice aged patina. The real stag horn grips are in great condition and have toned slightly with age and have a great look to them. Both grip screws are in good condition and both sides fit nice and tight with no gaps. The knife fits quite tightly into the scabbard, however I checked the makers mark of the scabbard and it too is made by Carl Jul Krebs and is marked under the top scabbard fitting “CJK”. The fittings on the scabbard look to me to be aluminum so possibly this is a transitional model? Original black painted scabbard is in good shape. Some scratches throughout but no dents or dings. The end piece has been lost to time and is not included, however one can be sourced online from time to time. If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Please contact me if you have any questions or concerns BEFORE BIDDING. This piece is sold AS IS and the way it was found. NO RETURNS so please be sure you want it. Thank you for looking and happy bidding! Condition: Used, Modified Item: No, Country/Region of Manufacture: Germany
