Indiana Cutlery Co Italian Made Euro Tactical Auto (Stasi Copy)

European Tactical Auto (Stasi Copy)

If you've been a customer of ours for a long time you'll recall the East German Secret Police Knife (Stasi) we offered in the mid 90's. It featured Micarta Handles and was marked "ERFURT" on the tang. The Ministerium für Staatssicherheit (Ministry for State Security) knife is now very collectible . 

This is the Italian Made Prototype version that was distributed by "Indiana Cutlery" of Italy with Green Aluminum Handles. This "pre-production" piece is completely sterile (no markings).  We offered these also, (way back when), and at that time referred to these as the ETA (Euro Tactical Auto). We found a small batch of these and now you have a chance to add one of these to your international collection. 

It features a Satin Polished 3 1/4" 440B Stainless, wide designed, clip point blade that comes shaving sharp. Measures 4 1/2" closed with a flush mount release brass button located in the center of the handle. This side opener is unique in that it is one of the few models made that uses a spring other than a coil or leaf spring; it is a unusual torsion spring (refrred to as a V-Spring), that is very powerful. Ultra heavy-duty Lockback design that locks up like a drum. Superb Quality Piece from Italy. Highly Recommended . Includes a Nylon Belt Sheath
