Purchase: RLB Leader Dagger [M1938] 2nd Model – Paul Weyersberg & Co., Solingen

Weyersberg Paul & Co., Solingen

This 2nd Model RLB [Reichsluftschutzbund] Officer's Dagger does not appear to have been cleaned in many years if at all. It is a fine piece having solid nickel silver plated hilt mounts. Model 1938. The reverse ricasso is etched with the oval trademark of this firm. The ovals contain the firm’s name and location, Paul Weyersberg & Co. Solingen.


Grip: It is a fine piece having solid nickel silver plated hilt mounts. The pommel cap still has its original pointy top and the top surfaces as well as the edges around the pommel are in good condition. The edge of the pommel has a decorative groove that runs around the circumference. The crossguard features the stubby winged, art deco eagle which looks to the viewer’s right. This bird grasps a wreath with a open swastika within the wreath. The crossguard arms are a triangular shape and each arm has three grooves in its surfaces. The pommel and crossguard are nicely patinated. The grip is a wood base. It is bulbous in the center and tapers on both ends. The leather shows some usage signs but overall it is still in first rate condition. All of the original grain is still intact. The grip features a button having a sunburst in the backgrounds. The original silvering still appears to be intact throughout the sunburst.

Blade: The blade is still fairly bright, with good, needle like tip. This blade has a mild covering of "smudge", but it is very light, and the blade is only affected slightly. This blade still grades at excellent plus, and perhaps with a little cleaning, could come up even nicer. The reverse ricasso is etched with the dual oval circles which contain the firm's name and location, Paul Weyersberg & Co., and Solingen. Inside is a downward pointing sword, positioned between two wheat shafts. The original blade buffer is in place.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is straight throughout. This metal shell is covered with leather. The scabbard mounts are the silver-plated steel base type. This would indicate that this piece was made as a 2nd Model and was not converted from a 1st. These scabbard mounts have deeply patinated surfaces. The center and upper mount are equipped with eyelets and hanging rings.
