Sold Item Notice

With bespoke, special order high grade brass fittings, the workmanship of particularly the hand crafted scabbard is exceptional. This deluxe version of a WW2 Nazi German Kriegsmarine dagger is made even more collectible and valuable above other rare deluxe models are the oak leaves and acorns; this dagger / dirk was once the property of one of Nazi Germany's most senior naval officers.

The 9 3/8 inch etched blade is in very good condition but with some wear and staining; the etching is authentic period acid etched (not post war). The blade is firm in the hilt. The grip is a little grubby and worn, plus the twisted grip wire is missing (this can be fairly easily replaced). The fitting are of pure high grade brass, not gilt metal; there are a couple of very small steel section pins (such as two of the back feathers of the eagle) used to make the dirk stronger. The scabbard is superb, a mass of oak leaves and acorns, even to the suspension rings. The dagger sheathes and draws well. The locking pin mechanism works. Please note: the small felt stopper does come with the dagger (it fell off and was missed out of the photos).

Regular deluxe WW2 Kriegsmarine dirks sell for over $10,000 in the USA; this flag officer's dirk is in a league above them due to the rank of the original officer owner. There will never likely be another one available to buy, so a huge investment opportunity here at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P21 (0205). Further / full sized images available upon request.
