Philips “Knijpkat” type 7424 torch

65.00

Typical wartime “Knijpkat” torch. These flashlights where made utilizing forced labour from Konzentrationslager Herzogenbusch. Unlike most of the wartime used flashlights the “Knijpkat” doesn’t have a battery but uses a small internal dynamo. This is the Aluminium 7424 model which never was finished with green paint such as the 7424-03. The Aluminium variants are said to be made from recycled aircraft aluminium. The mechanism is still in great condition and the torch still works!
