A Swiss army knife but made for the German army. In Finland, our soldiers use their puukko for everything, but in Germany, the bayonet is for evil deeds and the pocket knife for utility tasks. If you like more subdued colors and don’t need pliers, this SAK might just be for you.

  • In stock 48 pcs. Sold 15 pcs in the last two weeks.

The manufacturer may vary. In some cases, you'll see known brands like Victorinox, but we haven't sorted these by all the various contractors. These were all issued by Bundeswehr so they're good.

Features

These are a bit more modern in design with ergonomic handles. All the metal parts are stainless steel, the handles are made of durable olive green polymer.

  • Knife blade with a partly serrated edge
  • Tin opener
  • Flathead screw driver and bottle opener
  • Phillips screw driver
  • Awl
  • Keyring
  • Length a tad over 11 cm (~4.3”) when closed, width 1.7 cm (0.7”)

One thing we really want folks to notice is the order of the combo blade: the straight part is close to the mouth of the edge, where it is most suitable for whittling and other tasks you generally do with a straight edge. The serrated part for cutting through ropes and such is moved over and still does its job. Sadly, the most common orientation of these features is reversed, but the Germans got it right this time.

German Army Surplus

Although these have seen military use, they are in surprisingly good shape. The signs of use can mainly be seen on the blade, which you might want to sharpen right away. The hinges will probably need some oiling as well.

I didn’t buy it here but my mom gifted me with one for finishing University. It’s very easy to handle but left handed users may want to adjust how they handle the tools; especially the can opener.

I did not buy it here but have been using mine for over 10 years. Very nice little tool for daily and outdoor use. The serrated blade is surprisingly good to use and does not really need sharpening if you don't make it do things it is not supposed. BTW, I paid like twice of the price here but still think it's a good deal.

So now I am a "pocket knife" guy. Surprisingly handy little tool. The only con is the randomness of condition, out of three one was ground down and the blade so bent it had to be returned (which is effortless).

Well used but not well oiled. The blade is very dull and there seems to be a requirement for soldiers to use knives as screwdrivers and of course bend the blade tip. There is also a nice reside of some long eaten meal, on the can opener. All to be expected considering the conditions of use. In total I'm pleased with my new knife.

Bought two as I didn’t want a dud, but neither were!! Lots of crud, lots of cleaning and oiling needed, but come up looking really good after the clean, they just need a bit of TLC. They are well used, lots of scuffs and a couple of small nicks on the outside, lots of scratches on main blade, which seems to possibly be due to the close location of the saw blade, rather than misuse by our BW friends. Will have a go at sanding and polishing the scratches out. Overall, a great buy for the money, where else can you get victorinox quality at this price?

It says under features "separate saw", but I see no saw in the pictures....

Yeah, it’s not shown in the pics but they should be included.
