Navy Officer Dagger [M1938] with Knot - WKC Solingen

This 2nd Model Naval Dagger is in near mint condition. A nice dagger here! The pommel is a beauty, having excellent detail to the bird's head, feathering, talons, wreath, and swastika in the center. The gilding is only worn a little bit on the ends of the half-folded wings. The crossguard also has almost all of the gilt. The rest of the guard is in choice gilded condition, to include the fouled anchor center blocks, the acanthus leaves on the quillon arms, and the button ends. The pommel is in excellent shape, having fine detail to the bird's head, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons, wreath, and mobile swastika. The crossguard is an excellent example, showing some minor usage, but still good detail to the fouled anchors, acanthus leaves, on both sides of the quillon arms, and to the buttons with their engravings around the circumference. The grip is a carved wood base, having good celluloid covering. This celluloid has turned to a slightly darker tone, still being in perfect condition. It is tightly wrapped with twisted, brass wire. The wire has trapped lots of original residue between the ribs. There is also an original-to-the-piece aluminum portepee. This portepee is set in the original double reef knot. There is some wire twisted around the bottom section of the cord, between the slide and stem. The lower stem and ball are in good shape, with an insert of flat style bullion. An interesting, original hilt here. The scabbard is is the lightning bolt style. It is straight throughout. This scabbard has good stampings to the palmettes around the bands, the lightning bolts, the ermine feet, and also to the acanthus leaves below. The scabbard is straight throughout, and has good, high-off-the-surface bands. These bands have good, overlapping, leaves and acorn mix. The eyelets are the triple serrated type. The blade is a double etched example, having outstanding, nickel plated finish. The backgrounds behind the etch are 100%, and this blade grades in mint condition, still having its needle-like tip. The obverse ricasso is deeply stamped with the knighthead trademark. The firm's initials are stamped below, WKC Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie. Solingen. The blade is protected by the in-place, original, off-red, felt buffer.
