Luftwaffe Dagger [M1937] with Portepee by Gustav Spitzer, Solingen

This 2nd Model Luftwaffe is in EXC+ condition throughout. This 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger has good airplane gray darkened fittings throughout. The pommel appears to still have traces of the original finish over the obverse swastika. It has good oak leaves around the double circles which enclose the swastikas on both sides. Model 1937. The total length is 43.3 cm. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: Gustav Spitzer, Solingen.

Grip: The grip of this dagger is an off-white example. It is wrapped with a twisted brass wire. The crossguards have matching toned aluminum, featuring an eagle which flies to the viewer's left and clutches a mobile swastika in his talons. The reverse pebbled pattern is still good, with most of the factory blackening intact. The upper quillon arms have the engraved oak leaves and acorns, with good treatment over the leaves, being a shaded style rendering. The ferrule matches the other hilt fittings. Setting off the fine hilt is an original luftwaffe short portepee.

Blade: The blade of this example is a beauty. It is completely mirror bright and has all of its crossgraining and nice sharp point. This blade grades in full mint. The reverse ricasso is etched with the rarely seen trademark. It features a circle surrounded by the firm's name and location, C. Gustav Spitzer Solingen. Inside is a prancing lion, one paw raised, with a flickering tongue and upward pointed tail. The original, small-style leather blade buffer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard is a generic type and it has good pebbling throughout. There is some age darkening to the airplane gray coating but it is not bad and matches nicely with the dagger’s hilt parts. The throat is a thinner style and it is retained by two headless center placed flush mount screws.
