Navy Officer Dagger with Damascus Blade and Ivory Grip by WKC Solingen

This 2nd Model German Naval Dagger is in Near Mint condition and complete with hangers and knot. Naval Dagger is with Damascus Blade, Ivory Grip and with Distributor Marked Blade (J. Robrecht Hofl. Berlin). The maker mark is by WKC Solingen.


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 crossguard below features fouled anchor center blocks, and the four-sided quillons have panels filled with fine pebbling. The quillons terminate in stylized capstans.

Blade: The fine genuine Damascus blade measures 25 cm. It is a beautiful blade, in nearly full mint condition and 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. The blade edge at the ricasso is the marking with retailer; it reads, “J. Robrecht Hofl. Berlin”.

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.
