The Nazi Kriegsmarine were the last of the German armed forces to authorise the wear of a Nazi issue revised dagger – this dagger became official on 28th January 1938 and replaced the traditional design that originated with the Prussian Navy. All Officers in the Kriegsmarine were authorised to wear the dagger for dress and ceremonial wear.

This dagger has the desirable hammered finish to the brass scabbard. There is one area that is dented towards the lower half of the scabbard, but does not distract to the excellent quality finish. All scabbard fittings have very fine details and are excellent quality.

The eagle pommel and anchored cross-guard have 95% of their brass wash remaining, very nice condition indeed. The white celluloid grip has three very fine hairline cracks, but the grip is secure. The brass wire wound into the grip is tight and in perfect condition. The daggers opening catch is working perfectly and the dagger fits very firmly into the scabbard.

The blade is good to excellent and has very nice crisp engraving and maker marked with the Alcoso Scales – Solingen.

A nice example of a dagger that will become scarce in the not too distant future.
