Features the same materials, details and workmanship as the original from the solid brass tube sheath to the alloy hilt with matching brass finish (that often wore off with use for a very elegant two-tone look) that threads into the sheath.

Beautiful, but
Mine came blunt as a hammer, with an ''edge'' so thick and rounded it's practically like buying a steel blank. It's going to take a lot of work and the removal of a ton of material to even get anything close to resembling an edge on this. Beautiful and hefty piece though, it's just that for that price I'd expect at least a courtesy factory edge, but there's no bevel *at all*, it's like it's unfinished.

Fantastic Knife
This thing is fantastic and I am really happy with it.  Little pricey but Heavy duty and well worth it.  Solid construction  and very well made.  A  great addition to any knife or military collection.

I go along with Sam:  this thing is a moose.  Rock solid and ready for bear.  Yes, it's heavy but it can baton through sheet metal.  One of the finest knives I've ever encountered.  Sharp and easy to sharpen.  2 thumbs up!!

Very Authentic
I happen to have a good friend whose Dad served during WW2.  The Dad was able to bring back one of these German Diver's Knife as a souvenir.  This reproduction is as close to the original as can be.  The only downside is that the thing weighs a ton (being all metal).  In the water the weight wouldn't matter.  On Land, it's a moose.
