Model- Zeitler 77 (Austrian Military Field Knife)
Manufacturer- Eickhorn Solingen, Germany
Price is for 1 blade blank.
Blade length- 6.5"'
Blade Width- .86"
Blade Thickness- 3/16"
Tang Length- 2.5"
Tang hole diameter- .196" (5mm)
Steel Type- 55Si7
Condition- These blades are ground, heat treated, stamped with model name, have the guard welded on, and have a black coating on them(parkerized?). The blades do need to be sharpened. Overall they are in good condition, however, they have been shipped halfway around the world and stored away since the late '70s in crates so there is some wear/scratches from the blades rubbing against each other in the crates and there are also some minor corrosion/rust spots on some of them.
History- Zeitler was an Austrian knife company who contracted with Eickhorn to produce these blades. The Zeitler 77 model was made as a trial for the Austrian military in the late '70's. However, the Austrian military ended up choosing another model manufactured by Glock(Feldmesser 78) as their standard issue field knife and the Zeitler 77 model was not produced commercially for the military. These appear to be fairly rare as they appear to have only been produced for the trials based on the information that we have been able to gather.
