As the son of two German born parents I figured it was time to get one of these for my collection:
West German Army (Bundeswehr) Eickhorn Paratrooper Gravity Knife – circa 1982

I love those, oddly enough many state stipulate grav knives as their own type of knife weapon. IE Switch blade, automatics, and Gravity knives.

There was a colt branded version of this knife that I always wanted but then I found out it was a copy of this knife. Such a cool knife. That ice pick thingy is for knots!
