Looks like ww2 German Wehrmacht (Army) Stiefelmesser, or bootknife.
Here's a German website that sells all sorts of militaria. The knife was sold and it didn't say for how much.

Another website, some German was asking the same question as you about three years ago, the going price, back then about 200 and/or about $234.
