In very good condition, a WW2 Nazi German Kriegsmarine Senior Officer's Dirk / Dagger by E u F Horster of Solingen.

Sales enquiries

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).
