This is an Original WWII German RAD Knife with scabbard. It was made by ALCOSO of Solingen. Handle of knife, and hand guard are void of almost all original silver finish, and Aluminum has begun to oxidize. Scabbard still has most of the original silver finish, but has since corroded over 30% of the surface. One of the plastic grips is broken and currently missing about half of that grip. Blade is in excellent condition, and is inscribed with "Urbeit adelt", and the makers mark. I believe this was either stored improperly in a garage or actic for a number of years, or was found in the dirt. Scabbard fits tightly, and obviously protects the blade well.
Selling to help collector's preserve history.
