Thread: Czech Gravity knife

  1. #1

    Czech Gravity knife

    Thanks to a friend of mine I was able to obtain this knife. The knife + the knife maker is a big mystery - no one knows who he is, where he lives. Time to time he sells one of these knives to a army/pawn shop in southern part of Moravia (around Brno) but leaves no contact info...

    I like that a lot, very spartan. Funny thing, nobody knows the guy or his whereabouts, but the blade has several markings and numbers on it?

    Yup... He is trying to mark the knife as if it was official army issued knife. He managed to confuse many collectors over the world. Just search for CZ 77 knife

    So, was the CZ 77 a real knife that was issued during WWII ? and are these new ones copies of them?

    I do not think it was real but I am no expert. These are no copies....

    From the info on the internet, it looks like there were 1000 of the originals made during WWII. Various counterfeits of the German gravity knife from WWII and this Czech variant have popped up of dubious quality.
    This one appears original or a very well made copy?

    I recall seeing one of those somewhere and I thought the price was too steep for me.
    It may well have been at a swap meet / flea market in Finland , but I definitely have seen something like it.
    Pretty cool in a crude sort of way.

    I do not use the knife - this particular piece is just part of my collection. I am quite happy that I was able to obtain the knife - I have not seen many in recent years. Actually I saw only about two more.
