Need help identifying Kriegsmarine "boot knife"


Recommended Posts

I came across this knife which I am pretty sure is Kriegsmarine based on the engraved anchor. However I am not sure of the era. I thought it was WWII but now I am skeptical. The knife is 10 inches tip to pommel. Its acid etched and Solingen.  I imagine its probably not worth a heck of a lot but I was wondering what would this knife be valued at?  I do not want to purchase it and find out i paid double the price, I do not even mind paying the retail price because I have a nice grouping of Kriegsmarine items it will display nicely with.  Thank you very much in advance for the help!  19147007_IMG5778.jpeg.97fa3ce1367eed1b4f2c0cd893ba8a0b.jpeg73219101_IMG5779.jpeg.a0c20a795bd811ddb166e87b00792531.jpeg47161661_IMG5781.jpeg.8fe51c5cdc96872a21182d52826250f8.jpeg13157151_IMG5782.jpeg.47b95b6b852b19dcf1b1465cbaf5751c.jpeg95423410_IMG5784.jpeg.0dccc6c5f3fb4739e28790a6c29b7a2f.jpeg

There are two companies named "RODO" that come to mind.  One is a WWII period German "RODO" that made belt buckles.  I am not aware of them making any edged weapons.  And, there is a British "RODO" that did make knives from before the war until now.  It is possible that your knife was British made instead of being German.  I can't make out the wording below the "RODO" etching.
