Navy Officer Dagger [2nd Model] by F.W. Höller Solingen

This Höller example is very attractive Kriegsmarine 2nd Model, 1938. The maker mark is stamped by F.W. Höller Solingen.

Grip: The Höller pommels are slightly smaller than most of the other types, and have a nice angle to the half-open eagle wings. This nicely offsets the wreath and mobile, which is executed in deep relief. The crossguard has the usual fouled anchors in the center blocks, with a decoration of acanthus leaves on the sides of the quillon arms. The button ends are nicely hand enhanced, with nipples that jut out quite far. The grip is a lighter tangerine color orange. The grip is in perfect condition and, as we usually see on Höller pieces, it is tightly wrapped with springy copper wire. The original-to-the-piece portepee is set in place in a Naval reef tie. This knot is the later nylon type, but die to the usage and age it has tones to a fine golden color.

Blade: The dark and crisp acid etched fouled anchor blade on this one looks great! The fit is nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point. The reverse ricasso is etched with the early form of the Höller trademark, being slightly more detailed that later versions. It features a set of double ovals which contain the firm's name and location, “F.W. Höller Solingen”. Inside is the famous thermometer logo, with too many digits to ever count... or 17 on each side. The leather buffer is still in place. The brown buffer pad continues to remain intact.

Scabbard: The scabbard is 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. The throat is retained by two headless brass side-screws.
