Navy Officer Dagger [2nd Model] by E.&F. Hörster Solingen

This Hörster example is very attractive Kriegsmarine 2nd Model, 1938. The maker mark is stamped by E.&F. Hörster Solingen.

Grip: The grip is a fine, celluloid type. The grip is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The crossguard also has good detail to the fouled anchor center block. Acanthus leaves decorate the surfaces of both of the crossguard arms, and they end in nipple-centered buttons.

Blade: The blade of this example is in near mint condition being a fouled anchor style double etched motif. The bright surfaces contrast nicely with the 100% gray backgrounds of the etch. These backgrounds show off the etch very nicely on this blade. The reverse ricasso is stamped with the trademark by E.&F. Hörster , and the original felt blade buffer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard is straight throughout, being the lightning bolt type. This scabbard has good detail to the palmettes around the bands, and to the lower lightning bolts, ermine feet, and acanthus leaves. The carrying bands show a little minor wear to the surfaces but the detail to the overlapping oak leaves and acorns is still there. The eyelets have triple serrations, also showing some minor wear.
