My best guess as i have seen some examples similar is that it's a field made knife. Hope that helps.

err, it may seem OBVIOUS, but I will ask anyway...

What dimensions is it?
Blade length, etc.

LT says it reminds him of local newspaper small-ads worded something like "Shoes for sale, £30"...

...and the LT got HIS commission on the battlefield!

BUT, it seems to have a raised slotted thumbswell on the back edge in front of the crossguard, so we two (LT & myself) would say its a definite factory made knife.
May open my copy of Cole after we've had our tiffin/K9 chunky chunks to I.d. it for ya...

Jon & LT Spike

But I don't think its worth contacting Time Team for this one!

Try - dropped in the woods by some over excited young Jaeger after he'd just got all emotional following the successful shooting of some Boar/Deer/Goat/Rabbit/Tourist; either that or he was carried away during a romp/picnic/knee trembler in the Wald with his junge fraulien...

Thought the crossguard looked a little Hitler-Youth-dagger-ish...

Its a PUMA brand, White Hunter model. Been in continual production about 40 years or so; but ya may need to ask an expert on modern cutlery production dates, etc.

I AM actually looking for one of these...

Is it for sale?
Does he have the scabbard & box for it?

LT sends his best wishes with regards the knife too; well, after his profanities had been removed the only word left was Bestest. Or it started with something that sounded like bestest!

Mmm.
