Default Red Cross Hewer

Pictures of the red cross hewer I got along with the eick luft dagger. This hewer has the typical patent pending GES. GESCHUT stamping on the blade under the crossgaurd. Wicked sawtooth blade and to thinkthese might have been used to amputate limbs on a woulded soldaten!!

Default Hewer

Phil. The saw teeth were factory done. Since the red cross was not a military organization the tip of the blade had to be blunt and not pointed according to the geneva convention!!
