    between 100.00 and 200.00 over here depending on condition. I saw a guy on a knife forum had the little mil crate and manuals with them. Since they are auto knife they technically can't be shipped over here because USPS shipping is a no no, on top of other state to state shipping laws as international would be same thing basically. It could be grey area as to how they would be descibed as. I have seen them go on gunbroker in the states go for 250.00 to 300.00 dollars.

    I would agree these are a grey area much like German gravity knives. AFAIK, there is no spring in those, correct?

    It must have some kind of spring. Because it works just like a switchblade. Push button blade flips up, no matter the orientation.

    PolishMilitaryKnivesC.jpg

    Thought I'd upload a photo of my Polish Military knives. The Wz55 (dated 1956) and the Wz53 in the middle of the top row are both NOS. The other three are all issued pieces that show some degree of wear/use. It is notable that the Wz53 on the right has had the blunt point sharpened to make a fairly nasty slicing knife. Does anyone know the Wz designations for the pilots knife at the bottom?

    I also have a NOS Wz92 but it has the bright blade and not the blacked out blade and really didn't fit in the picture

    RNL = ratowniczy noz lotniczy

    RNL = ratowniczy noz lotniczy = rescue air knife.

    Overall lenght: ca. 205 mm
    blade lenght: ca. 90 mm

    45 "teeth"

    AFAIK the RNL was developed by the Air Force Institute of Technology and was manufactured in the company WIFAMA in Lodz, Poland, from the seventies to the mid eighties.

    Very nice examples! A friend of mine has one of the combat knives that he took off an NVA Soldier who no longer needed it. If I can talk him into it, I'll try and put some pics of it. He said it was in great condition.

    Thanks for the info and great pictures Reibert.

    Also, if you know where I can get a scabbard in good shape for the RNL, I'd like to know. My scabbard is pretty rough.

    Easier to get a complete knife, than a single sheath ...
    But, such knives are pretty hard to find.
