This is a rare and extremely desirable Third Reich dagger, that is missing from most collections. This is an excellent original piece, in totally untouched condition. The double edged blade has a slight bend at the tip. It is marked with the commercial type “scales” maker logo of Alcoso in Solingen, the maker one typically expects to see with these daggers. The handle is attractive, with clean mother of pearl grip plates. The cross-guard eagle is beautiful, with darkening to the recesses that gives a look of depth. There is an army pattern knot tied to the handle. This dagger is complete with its original plated steel scabbard, which is nice and straight, but with a few minor rust narks in places. Good overall condition.
