DLV Glider Pilot Knife [M1934] with Hanger by Gebr. Heller Marienthal

German DLV [Deutscher Luftsportverband] Glider Pilot´s Dagger. Model 1934 - 1st version. This DLV Glider Pilot's Dagger is in Near Mint condition. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: Gebr. Heller Marienthal.

Grip: The Dagger has fine heavy nickel mounts throughout. The crossguard has a square center mount with an inserted medallion on both sides. This medallion is decorated with enameled mobile swastikas. The quillon arms slope downward and are in the characteristic tripartite design, evoking the image of a set of wings. The “K” and “H” stamping can be seen on one of the crossguard ends, which no doubt is the initial of the producer of these mounts.

Blade: The blade on this example is in near mint condition having fine needlelike tip. The reverse of the ricasso is deeply etched with the pleasing marking of a balloon man selling his wares. The balloon man walks over the firm’s name, town and location Gebr. Heller Marienthal bei Schweina/Trh. This fine blade is protected by the original matching blue grained leather washer.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is completely straight and has blue Moroccan leather covering with very fine grain. This leather is in EXC++ condition, matching the grip exactly. The scabbard mounts are of matching nickel silver. These mounts have twin decorative lines just in from the edges, and are retained by nickel sides screws which are in place.

Hanger: The ring has an attached short hanger. The leather is retained by two oval nickel rings, one on each side, both of which are in turn retained by two rivets. The solid nickel silver snap clip is an early unmarked example, matching the metal on the rest of the piece.
