WW2 Italian MSVN Model 1935 Boot / Trench
Dagger, for sale
In good condition, a genuine / authentic WW2 Italian MSVN Model
1935 Boot / Trench Dagger.
There are a LOT of reproductions of this iconic Fascist M.V.S.N.
(Italian Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale) daggers
on the market, but this one is 100% authentic / genuine. Brought
by us from the son-in-law of a British soldier who brought this
home after serving in Italy. It is not that difficult to tell authentic
items like this from copies, natural aging is virtually impossible
The period sharpened 8 1/8 inch blade is in very good shape, firm
in the hilt. The cross piece aged but good. The grip worn but good.
All firm. The blackened / browned steel sheath has some very light
rusting but not too much. The knife sheathes and draws well but
does not full sheath; probably something got into the sheath and
is stuck there (may be possible to scrape out). Priced well below
the market average for an above average example, just £450.
Please quote item reference number V66. Further / full sized pictures
available upon request. Box 1033-49x13x5 (0.484)
