WW2 Nazi German Kriegsmarine Officer's Dirk
/ Dagger, Horster, For Sale
In very good condition, a WW2 Nazi German Kriegsmarine Senior
Officer's Dirk / Dagger by E u F Horster of Solingen.
The quality scabbard bearing acorns rather than lightening bolts
shows this dirk was once owned by a senior officer, such as a commander
of a U-Boat.
The 9 3/8 inch finely etched blade is in good condition but with
some age and rust spots. The blade is firm in the hilt. The grip
has a little wear and some spots on the obverse side (where it was
once worn and rubbed on the officer's tunic), but nothing too serious.
Twisted grip wire present and correct. The hilt is all good, very
little wear. The dirk sheathes and draws well.
We bought this dirk at a provincial UK auction which was not well
advertised below what we would normally expect to pay / see such
a dagger fetch, and so can pass on our good fortune by offering
it at just £1000. Please quote item reference V48. Further
/ full sized images available upon request. Box 0999-0.6 (1.107).
