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 movement. WOW!
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.
Nikolas Maes: things that are scary are often illegal in some places :D
Timur Herrmann: Its Not made by "BUND" "BUND" is the Name of 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 knif e:D
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.
Ed Cook: I have three of these knives. All were given to me by my cousin in the Bundeswehr. (Fallschirmjaeger)
These knives are great as long as you understand their construction and limitations.
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 almost indestructible.
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
Christian Evers North Star Armory: "messer" means knife and "BUND" refers to Bundeswehr- the German Army
Dupa Krowa: why do German paratroopers have the weirdest knives?
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 legal!
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 knife.
suprqt: Hidden blade
WorkerBee2011: Is this the same guy who does gunwebsites? Either way its cool
blauerBMW: it´s made by WMF Württembergische Metallwaren Fabrik
