    We just got a batch of Victorinox One Hand Trekker Knives in. These are true German Army Surplus, and were definitely issued. I'm impressed with their condition, for knives that were carried in the field. German soldiers must take good care of their kit. Both plain and serrated edge knives are available.

    Our price is $30 with Free Shipping to any US address. International shipping is cheap. You can find them here on our site: https://5col.com/products/victorinox-one-hand-trekker-knife-german-army-surplus

    The One Hand Trekker features the following tools:
    • Large One-Hand-Open Locking Blade
    • Phillips Screwdriver
    • Bottle Opener
    • Large Locking Screwdriver
    • Can Opener
    • Small Screwdriver
    • Wire Stripper
    • Reamer
    • Wood Saw
    They also have a small split ring for attaching lanyards or key rings. The handle scales are Olive Drab and are stamped with the Bundeswehr eagle insignia.

    Wow, really good price! I bought a couple from another source and paid about $10 more. Great knives, everything you need for outdoors work and nothing you don't. The two I bought are for my kids' first knives.

    These are rock solid knives! I got one in a trade a few years ago. Not in the best of shape, but seems to be heavier and stronger than my sak civilian trekker.

    Bump for a left handed friendly delight. I just picked one up NIB camo version a couple weeks ago and love it. Operates easily with left hand as the lock release is opposite of most lock blades I've had in my hands. I love the Bundeswehr eagle insignia on these.

    Fyi, I got the serrated blade and simply ground them to a plain edge. Since they are also chisel ground, I beveled the other side as well. They turned out great and I can get them shaving sharp.

    For real, I'm not trying to threadjack, just trying to show what's possible with these awesome knives. Very much worth it at these prices. You can see, I replaced the German eagle with the monograms of my kids (Maggie & Victor.)

    Thanks for sharing those pics. Good to see what's possible. I like the monograms. That's a really nice touch.

    Just opened mine up. Not one sign it's ever been used at all.

    Very very happy with my purchase!
