Why do you think they are military rather than commercial.

While that would certainly indicate they belonged to a German soldier, it does not mean that they are not a commercial item that was purchased by a German soldier. There are many examples of American troops carrying commercially purchased hunting knives, jackknifes, etc. into combat so I would think German soldiers did as well.
