Airborne Jump Knife - Field Made - 307th AEB
An original WW2 Airborne jump knife that is named to Charles R Birnbaum - 42036214 - 307th AEB - 82nd Airborne. He was a replacement in 1944 and fought in the Ardennes and Rhineland.
The knife has been field made using the blade from a Luft dagger and then having a handle grip machined, it is very unique.
The wear on the leather scabbard shows that knife and scabbard have been together a very long time. The name can be seen written on the back of the scabbard.
A very unique knife that is from The Overlord Collection and is being sold to fund new items.
