What you have is not an OHT- the One Handed Trekker is the civilian version of what you have, which is the One Handed German Army Knife, also known as the OH GAK.  What's the difference?  Pretty simple- the OH GAK has the olive green scales with the German Army crest on it.  The OHT has black scales with a red and white Victorinox shield printed on it.  The OHT also has the toothpick and tweezers, which the OH GAK variant is missing, likely because soldiers are expected to just lose them anyway.

Functionally the OH GAK and OHT are identical, but it may be interesting to you to know you have the actual military variant!

You beat me too it Def.  I'm not up to speed on the history of this knife, was it designed for the German Army and then come out as the OHT or the other way round?

PS in case you didn't know cliosguy, this is basically going to be the next issue knife for the Swiss army as well.

Don't worry about it "some people" are way to anal about the proper name.     ;) :D   :twak:

Just enjoy it whatever name you give it...  "Swiss Man" would be a good name for it, just a thought.   8)

Wow an OH issue Swiss Army knife, wonder what color it would be and will it have the crest of the swiss army. Very interesting.

Thanks for the link.
I like the style better than the GAK, wonder when would it be on sale for the general public?

The standard bladed Trekker model existed, previously and was modified with a one handed blade and serrated edge specifically for the German Army contract.  So, depending on your point of view, the Trekker was first since it was around previously, but the GAK was first because it was the reason for the OH blade.
