Just wanted to ask, is the knife on the right side of the picture genuine? Looks like a One Handed Trekker (left handed)

Looks genuine to me. It would be an early one, judging by the elongated thumb hole.
Edit: I can't imagine a copycat producing lefthanders, as the market for these would be quite smallish..

I wouldn't be surprised to see other models with DAK scales. It's the first time I see a lefthander though. What about the tang stamps? Vic or Zwanenburg?

I believe that's a Van Zwanenburg Dutch Army issued copy. But not 100% sure. Not a lot of info on these but here's an old eBay listing for one.

When the Dutch army started issuing the new 111mm DAK in 1993 they simply ran out of supply. At that point some soldiers got a "civilian" version of the knife (Centurion) but they also issued a cheap knock-off of the DAK. That's probably the one jaya_man has (although i'm not sure because I have never seen one of the knock-offs). The cheap knock-off is said to be of inferior quality with a lot of blade play.

I was cleaning my DAK after wet stone sharpening, and I noticed it has something scribed on the one of the two circle on the KL side scale!
Looks like the date isn't only stamped on the scale front, but also on the inside   :think:
There's nothing like that neither on my 03 Swiss Soldier, nor on the old red pioneer I have... Is that a specific feature of DAKs?

I went to a car boot sale this morning, found nothing and they were already packing up.  :(

Stopped at an army surplus store on the way home that I had never been to, I heard from a friend that they had GAKs and I felt like gawking ( :whistle: ) at some.
I walked in, my eyes were drawn to a not-a-GAK.  :o

All I knew at the time was that it was a '74 DAK, and that the €10 label sounded like a great price with its relatively moderate wear?

I took her home, learnt that it was not made by vic or wenger. Still... For an introduction to the world of alox, its great. I love the alox itself and the inline awl(it puts the 91mm awl in its place :rofl: ).

What do you DAK experts think? It seems to be in nice condition.  :)

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

If nothing else,  its making me realise how good alox is. This is going to cost more than 10 euros.  :facepalm:

Arrrr smurf.  :facepalm:
Here I go again on that ghastly ship...  :gimme:


By the way,
The bottle opener has some slight play, could there be a washer missing or something?
If it was the rivet then would the blade(mounted on the same rivet) not have the same problem? (the blade feels solid)

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

This is also a DAK for the Air Force, as used in the bail-out / survival kits.

This piece of metal & plastic junk is probably the most worthless DAK in existence. It's a promotional item for the 'Landmacht' (=land force, or army).
The knife was found in the sand of an army training area, so there was at least one soldier who thought it was a good knife :facepalm: Or maybe he threw it away when he found out it wasn't....
I did not even bother to clean it.

Yes, these Richartz knife still have a little bit of quality. I think this cheap copy was a give-away for boys & girls during ' Landmacht Open Dagen' (= Army Open Days).

Commercial type DAK from German knife company ‘Herder’. Part of Dutch Army demolition kits. Nothing special.

Freidrich Herder is a well regarded knife maker.  That style is known as a European Style Electrician. Here in the US, our electrician's knives (often issued as the TL-29, or Tool, Lineman's 29) are typically two bladed, spear and a combination linerlocked wire stripper/scraper,and flat head screwdriver, usually with a shackle/bail to attach it to a lanyard), while typically the Euro ones are a one blade that also has a wire stripper in the tang. I have a similar Antonini.

Now that detonator is something cool.

If you ever come across another of those Herders, let me know.
