Ek het 地 vriend hier in Nelspruit wat messe maak vir 創 ekstra inkomste.  Deur die jare het hy al vir my 地 paar gemaak teen 地 baie billike prys. 
地 Paar jaar gelede het ek 地 stel van vier identiese messe laat maak vir al die Adriaans in ons familie.  My Pa was die oudste (A1jan), my jongste broer 2de oudste (A2jan), my seun die derde Adriaan (A3jan) en my broer se seun (A4jan).  Met my Pa se afsterwe het ek sy mes gekry.  Die geskryf is in die staal in ge-ets. 
Hy het ook vir my 地 stel van 6 steak messe gemaak.  Steak eet is soveel beter as 地 mes vlym skerp is. (Jammer vir die dowwe hout.  Ek moet dit 地 slag weer seel met byewas)
My nuutste toevoeging is 地 slagmes.  Die mes werk fantasties.
Hy maak messe vir alledaagse gebruik.  Dit bly vir my 地 plesier om na die messe te kyk.

Hou baie van daai slagmes! Lem se vorm lyk of dit baie lekker sal werk. Het n effense skerper punt as gewone slagmesse wat goed sal wees waneer mens n vlies of sening net wil "vang".

Not sure but certainly a commemorative, from the period it may have been a decent manufacturer /supplier. More details from the blade markings please?

Anyway, I think it is Uber cool and if it's been in storage for a while and survived the way it has it is good quality. May not be worth much except to a collector but still something that is nice as an heirloom or as a daily side piece.

I like it. Some history there  ;D

DS, that example is the best I've seen. Known by some as the Fernando Essex 1952 Van Riebeeck Festival Pocket Knife.
Numerous companies bought and branded them for the festival in 1952 as company presents

Blade is stamped with Horse Tools co Pty Ltd Jhb. Really cool. So some almost 70 years old. Nice.

I've owned a Glock Feldmesser for some time, but have long lusted after a genuine K-BAR US Marine fighting knife. I finally got hold of one not so long ago:
'69 Model.

Guys in my mind a fix blade will be better. This is purely for tactical use.  Not to big though. Think a 8-12 cm blade?
