The stainless steel version of the Skrama, designed for those who work under constantly wet and humid conditions.

This is naturally no axe, nor a precision tool for extremely meticulous work, but something in between and a solid and dependable companion above all.

The modern German army combat knife is - rather surprisingly - a tanto design. These were probably too threatening for the domestic German market, so they were sold to the knifing capital of Europe, Finland.

Essentially a sturdy thing meant for fighting and general use. 5 mm thick tanto blade, PA6 polyamide handle, with the steely part going all the way through it. Blade length 17 cm, total length of the knife about 30 cm. The material used in the blade is 440A forged, stainless steel. Hey, if it's good enough for the German Bundeswehr, it should be pretty high quality. These are made by Eickhorn Deutschland.

The frog is a bit more retro by its polycotton materials, but otherwise pure 21st century (in a good way): MOLLE-style attachment on the back along with a regular belt loop means you can attach this to anything, and under a hidden velcro flap you'll find a sharpening stone. If necessary, the knife & sheath can be removed entirely from the frog.

Condition

Used, and it shows: the blade will likely need some care (most have a millimeter of the tip of the blade missing like the knife in the picture), the sheath & frog might have old desert paint or German tape applied by the previous users.

Very nice, very sturdy double chisel-ground (on both sides of) tanto blade, heavy-duty thermo-plastic handle, nice sheath (with diamond sharpening "stone" attached). My blade was not damaged, and comes to needle-sharp point. The blade itself looks strong enough to pry up a truck. Back 1/3rd-ish of blade is serrated. ODGreen/Black blade coating worn through to steel in spots, indicates the knife has been well used.

Very good value (when compared to NEW KMs, about 1/2 the price), and a nice collector's knife! I have not seen these on the U.S.A. market before, so I was overjoyed to find this.

Very good BW Kampfmesser, tanto and as good as it gets, perhaps the only Varusteka surplus that is more expensive than a new BW one, although the price have been lowered. Check eickhorn solingen for their new BW messer. But nothing beats a knife that has seen real battle. The full tang blade is great, option for a knife strap down at the end of the shield and/or ar the end of the rear of the knife. Rear full tang to break a skull, eeuur mean glass....Buy one... I can recomment. My own knife is a custom made to order Eickhorn KM1000 with desert shield and desert grip / desert Molle in Special GT Night coating, a KM1000 will last more than several lifetimes.
