Description

A very fine second luftwaffe dagger here! This is a solid celluloid type grip with a nice orange color on one side and a slightly lighter orange color on the other side. We see this from time to time from daggers that have been exposed to sunlight on only one side over many years, causing an uneven UV light related toning to develop. We know from late examples and factory painted white grips that these were originally all white. The blade on this dagger is very nice with a few oxidation spots and runner marks. Id give it a 8.5 out of 10. The scabbard is really choice, having nearly all the original air plane grey heavy plating still remaining with just a few spots that it is popping off. I forgot to clean it up before the photo shoot and was already committed, so you will see the remains of some white residue from a previous owners polish compound. This will easily clean up with an oiled cloth and maybe a toothpick and some Q tips. A solid example!
