unexplained-events:

Srbosjek which literally translates to “Serb-Cutter” in Croation and Serbian was a knife used to kill prisoners in Croation Concentration Camps during WW2.

It was mainly used by the  Ustaše because they preferred to cut the throats of their prisoners rather than gassing them. The curved 12cm blade made that task quick and smooth.
