does anyone know anything about this sword? it's been in the family since 1942, looks brand new. I believe it's a hunting sword with skinning knife.

    German hunting knife called a Hirchfanger. The larger blade used to dispatch { kill } the game and small blade for field dressing. Check this site for aprox. value, taking into consideration that prices here would be a tad on the high side.

    Thanks so much, you were very helpful. This is a German sword brought back from World War II, also the case is probably leather
