Imperial Naval Dirk [M1905] with Damascus Blade and Ivory Grip by WKC Solingen

This German Imperial Naval Dirk is in EXC+ condition and with Damascus Blade and Ivory Grip. The grip is of extremely fine Elfenbein in totally perfect condition. Model 1905.

Grip: The grip is a very pretty genuine Elfenbein, still being in perfect condition. There are some very attractive striations on both sides, with tones and gold and graining throughout the entire grip. This grip is wrapped with twisted brass wire. The pommel is one of the extra-cost, high finial types. These finials are way up there, with finely serrated edges supporting the orb and cross at the top. The upper portion of the pommel is hand checkered. The six domed shields that surround the pommel are all pebbled, alternating between designs of Prussian eagles and crosses. The crossguard is the standard Imperial style, having some nice laurel leaves shown in the neck area above the center blocks. The center blocks bear the usual fouled anchors on both sides.

Blade: The fine genuine Damascus blade measures 24,4cm. It is a beautiful blade, with an attractive pattern. The ricasso with slanted edges where it meets the blade. It also has dual fullers and a needle-like tip. The reverse blade is stamped with the turn of the century W.K.&C. Knight Head trademark, and the original tan felt blade buffer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard is a real beauty, is the ultra-rare and almost never-seen scabbard being a factory hand-chased example of superb beauty. The scabbard design blends panels of hand-raised oak and acorn sprigs with the hammered design of the scabbard shell. The workmanship is incredible and extremely striking. The scabbard remains nearly all of the original gild finish still remains - a piece of jewelry here! The bands are also custom-made. The eyelets have the same engraved-style oak-leaved surfaces that WKC delivered on most of their standard hammered scabbards. The hanging rings have connected oak leaves raised out of both sides - nothing was missed on this choice scabbard. Even the lower chape button has engraved oak leaves. A super-skilled craftsman spent a lot of time on this scabbard! The throat is retained by two dome head, brass side screws.
