Original lanyards for the Luftwaffe Gravity Knives are extremely hard to find and easily sell for $200-$250 (180 -250 Euros).

You have the unique chance to purchase a lanyard made of original WW2 materials.

The offered lanyard is made of original RZ 20 paracord , which is almost impossible to obtain on the market. The sewing material was produced in 1942 by company "Gruschwitz" in Neusalz a.d. Oder, Silesia (after the war went to Poland and was renamed "Nowa Sol" - company was closed in 1945 by the Russians), which procuced for the Wehrmacht.

This is a German pilot and paratrooper gravity knife lanyard that was issued to the German Armed Forces alongside their knives.

All German paratrooper's had this lanyard attached to their gravity knife and pant belt loop so that if the event ever occured that they had to use their knife in a parachute jump then if they accidentally dropped the knife they would be able to recover it.

Other than the Luftwaffe air crews, whose flight suits already came with a set of lanyards, the Fallschirmjägers had to make their own lanyards - and they did!

Different variants existed - made of leather, hemp cord as well as these lanyards made of paracord, which were then tied e.g. to the belt. (these lanyards are referenced in the book: "Luftwaffe Gravity Knife" J.-P. Brüning, 2018)

These are authentic vintage lanyards from Germany, the material was found in a shop that supplied these at issue era and the remaining stock was finished to the original specifications by J.-P. Brüning the author of Luftwaffe Gravity Knife: Weapon, Tool, Tradition; 2nd Edition Hardback Book

If you are a collector of German WWII & have any gravity knives this is a must have to keep the originality of your knife.

This Is A True Collectors Item.  Do not let this unique item pass ! You may never get the chance again to purchase a lanyard like that!
