Jake's HoldOver: I am allowed to own a gun but not a knife that has a
blade which opens by pressing a button, spring or other
device in the handle, by gravity, or by a thrust or
Holly Stewart: I just bought a German Army Paratrooper Gravity knife LL80 brand new from
this website and wow the blade is tight no blade play at all and the blade
is sharp. The company sent it to me fast too and I paid $64.00 for it,
which is great.
Timur Herrmann: Its Not made by "BUND"
"BUND" is the Name of the German Army
Nikolas Maes: things that are scary are often illegal in some places :D
Christian Evers North Star Armory: "messer" means knife and "BUND" refers to Bundeswehr- the German Army
Chris John: There also is a navy version of this knife, saddly those knifes are illegal
in germany so i only ever so one once fpr real. But i was amazed of the
Ed A.: Illegal in Michigan :'/
3vegemite: Bund is not a company, but a short form of Bundeswehr, meaning German Army.
Messer is knife, Truppe is troup or team.
Thomas Dittrich: Hello I´m Thomas from Germany.
I Like the video but I just wanted to add that the company" B-U-N-D" is not
a company its our Army. Befrore 1945 it was called "Wehrmacht" now it´s the
"Bundeswehr" in short Form:"Bund"eswehr ;)
David Schoen: The producer is wmf and BUND stands for Bundeswehr
HSBU Raptor: Really? F*CK Logic. They're made in Germany. But in Germany they aren't
Al Machado: Yes there is a fair amount of blade play. Without this I doubt the blade
would release and slide in and out so easily. Just my 2 sense.
Al Machado: The one I picked up around 20 years ago was used and had a pretty scratched
up blade and a slightly blunted marlin spike but I dug it up and put it to
a stone and now it shaves hair. On the blade there is an etch that says
'Solingen 75" and the plastic od green scales are embossed 'Bw'. Very cool
Ed Cook: I have three of these knives. All were given to me by my cousin in the
These knives are great as long as you understand their construction and
Yes there is some play to them when you first extend the blade. Close the
lock and shake it and the blade locks in place. (If it doesn't you have to
open the knife and clean it.)
They are heavy due to their style of construction. Then again they are
As for use, I have one strapped to my Back Pack shoulder strap when I'm
camping. It comes in handy.
Kiertapp: And theyre illegal in Germany
Dupa Krowa: why do German paratroopers have the weirdest knives?
Gabe Musashi: @GearBuyersGuide this argument is freaking funny, why do i NEED a sword? why
do i NEED two ibanez destroyers!? why do i NEED a computer?
Gear Websites: @tom10167 nice.. thanks
Nick Smith: @Teufelsnachbar667 ur kind of a vagina buzz kill
xxsaberwarrior564: im gessing that this knife failed a lot when a german tryed to stab and it
hit and went back in
GIGOM: @tom10167 you need cloths its illegal to be naked
Christian Scheer: That's right the Knife was also issued to armoured vehicle crews.
tom10167: Not everyone buys things they need. I own a television, a motorcycle, nine
watches, and a closet full of clothes. I don't need any of them but I have
them because I like them and want them. Rather than judging other people
you should spend some time figuring out why you are unable to grasp such a
WorkerBee2011: Is this the same guy who does gunwebsites? Either way its cool
igrenade: @Leonidasll75 everything's illegal in ny.
Paul Silva: I need one
10106106: @GearBuyersGuide Because it is easy to open??? Do you even have to ask?
1)Someone with only one hand2) Someone who has weak hands 3) Someone with
arthritis 4) A mountain climber --- just because YOU don't need it, doesn't
mean that anyone else in the entire world can't use it. People just lack
critical thinking skills.
Arpoky: Director of Lulz: And it's made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff! And
you gotta act now, because you know we can't do this all day. Call the
number on your screen: 1-800-GRVTYKNF.
APrvertedBanana: Where can I buy one of those knives and are they easily found unused or are
most of them used already?
david john Huxtable: yeh no doubt its 1940s technology its pretty functional knife however i
didnt like the sound the blade made on vertical gravity inducement! as it
sounds kind of a lot of play in the main blade if it was smoother glide in
out id buy one!! BUND comments were interesting theres always some clever
pickley around! i knew what you meant your not german nor were you in the
nazi youth movement so i forgive you!! herr gearbuyer! heil hitler!!!
Hans Brox: Even then it´s illegal, but you´re allowed to carry it with you in
fulfilling terms of duty. Laws are for everyone...even for soldiers in
their freetime. So if you´re on your way home and use THIS instead of your
regular pocket knife to cut things open, that you can´t open with your
teeth or nails and you meet an overmotivated police officer, you´ll
probably have a little one-sided, loud and clear dialogue with your
superior. I only know, what´s law and what has been promised, not if it´s
Abraxian Absolution: That thing makes a wonderful sound.
mikekcmo6742: you should have tested it on that damn cell phone buzzing lol !
styler797: Well im from austria and "bund" is another word or short term for the
german "bundesheer" which is the german army lol so its not made by "bund"
it just says its an army knife :-)
FrontlinerCdV: "BUND" only means it belongs to the german forces(or the german state in
general, even though I must admit I´ve seen this for the first time in the
Bundeswehr too), its not a manufacturer.
Jeep546: And where?
ebi1277: How much, and whered did ya get it?
martialme84: Messer = Knife(literally) Kapp = cut, cut off, sth like that LL - (which
you forgot to mention) stands for "Luft Lande-" which is the German
equivalent of your "para" and Truppe, which stand for troops. So it means
sth like "Para-troops". "Knife, cut/cut off, para-troops, 1Each" is what it
says on this little box. The number is what you search it by in the German
military equipment lists...
dimmddr1: Illegal in Canada. Damn!
Zach Green: i am seeing a lot of blade play in there
VpR81: @ZzX42 xDDDD
143yamaha: crap. illegal in ny
HondoMcRaven: Geman armed forces recieve small items like knifes, forks,spoons etc from
various manufacturers who all build the same stuff. So I can't tell you,
who manufactured the knife
Remington597man: i sure as hell know ya swedes know how to make one hell of an
axe/hatchet!!! Unrelated but my 2 favorite hockey players are from sweden,
Nicklas Backstrom(#19) and Marcus Johansson(#90) both of the washington
capitals. greetings from Washington DC mate...
UBRCHARGED: As far as i know, all military stuff from Germany is top notch. In Sweden
we also have pretty good military stuff but Germany is way better than us
on making firearms and that kind of stuff. We make quality defence stuff,
doesnt really have anything to do with the knife, but i have freedom of
wolschou: @ripcalwill Just in case you like to know: The Knife is not made by BUND,
that means Union and is how most german military equipment is marked, like
the ARMY-Tag on american gear. The logo on the Blade is WMF, which is a
german company maufacturing high end table wear, glass and porcellain as
well as cutlery. As for the markings on the box: Messer, Kapp means Knife,
Sever (as in severing chute lines). and LL-Truppen is short for
Luftlande-Truppen, meaning Airbourne Troops.
Nick Smith: so does this mean if I take it to the moon, I won't be able to kill zombies
Gear Websites: yes, gravity knives wiggle a lot just like OTF knives of any type
penguin123446678: goddamn send button,k. as i was saying, especially Americans...then again
Germans and Americans are left on a sour note... pity.i dont even know if
Philippines has this knife...all we have are imported stuff and crap
knives, Swiss is fine but bamboo knvies?! xD German inventions are great
The281093: The german laws in general aren't too bad only our weapon laws aren't worth
the paper on which they are printed^^
