"SMF" Kriegsmarine gravity knife value?

I have a gravity knife with a marlinspike with "SMF SOLINGEN ROSTFREI" on the blade and what looks like an eagle with "5" on it's chest on the base of the marlinspike. It's missing the trigger, but otherwise in good condition. I believe it's WWII (maybe earlier, maybe a short time after) but that's just my guess. It lacks an Nazi markings, but I'm not sure if general issue Kriegsmarine knifes are or aren't supposed to be marked as such. I don't know much about knives as far as their history and value goes. Any help you given will be greatly appreciated.

It's a German WW2 paratroopers knife. It is in relic condition. The blade is worn and has been shortened, the locking arrangement is gone, and it has a broken spring. Value is very little in this condition.
