AndyB,
Thanks for the input. The tool is in my possession, it was sold to me as a "multi-tool pocket knife, possibly German, possibly ww2". By the way does anyone know if it had an official name?
Best regards
Tamás

Hi,
This particulat tool is part of an experimental/prototype Bayonet/knife introduced during WWII by the german army. It goes in the B/K bakelite handle and includes a can opener, a bottle opener, a thick needle for sewing, a skrewdriver with special feature to cut electric wire (and take off the plastic around them, don't know the english word), and I don't remember the purpose of last tool, sorry.
The one I did see already didn't have exactly the same features, as tools were not positionned like in this one.
I hope it helps.
ciao!

JPhilip,

Thanks for your input. The tool you mean should be the wire stripper and "spent cartridge remover".

Basically I know what it is (I do not know the German name of it though) and what the SG42 is, I would like to be assured if it is original or not.

It was found among the repearing tools of an old handyman in a bike repear shop in Debrecen (huge tank battle), just tools, no bayos How could it make its way to Hungary? What kind of troops used it?

Best regards
Tamás

Sg 42 means its a SeitenGewehr 42 - bayonet model 1942, in literature was mentioned majority of 10000 pcs in late 1944, proofed in field. Could be that a unit used it by fights in area of Hungary. But i believ more it was in a depot, when the story is true, while in last were found too much Sg42, majority were faked. best regards,Andy
Ps how many tools could You found there?

This is the first one I ever seen here in Hungary. I meant it was found among his motorbike repearing tools, none of the rest were army related. It was sold as "pocket knife, probably ww2, probably German". The guy told me he is sure it must be German, because it has a manufacture code and bears the remains of the blueing. It is also some precisely made old tool, so it must be German

In the other thread it is said that about 2.000 are proven to be made, the last 10.000 are not documented. Anyway, if it is original, it is rare as hell....

No serial No, only the usual ltk or 1tk (I have no idea what it means), so I don't know the year it was manufactured in...

... and believe me it had a price tag for that I couldn't buy even a Swiss army pocket knife.

Regards
Tamás
