This German Army Officer's Dress Dagger is really a striking example of the excellent German craftsmanship that typified German dagger production prior to World War II, and during the first couple years of combat. The dagger was manufactured by the famous Solingen cutler Eickhorn and is clearly marked ALOSA SOLINGEN with a scales hallmark on the reverse ricasso of the blade. The blade retains the majority of its original bright finish and much of the original cross polish. The blade is full length, finely pointed, and free of any pitting or corrosion, showing only some minor scabbard wear and a handful of light surface scuffs. The silver plated mountings have a really lovely, untouched and tarnished appearance, The celluloid grip has a rich, deep creamy ivory color that is very striking. The grip is in fine condition and is free of any breaks or repairs. The grip shows only some light wear but no gouges or chips. There are 4 tiny and hardly noticeable surface pits on the back side of the grip. These pits are extremely tiny and difficult to see with the naked eye and are only mentioned for exactness. The fit of the grip, mounts and blade are excellent and the dagger is 100% original and had no replacement components. The silver plated scabbard is in very fine condition as well, showing the same dark, tarnished appearance as the dagger mounts. The suspension rings are both present and the scabbard is free from dings or dents.
This is a very fine example of the Nazi Army Officer's Dress Dagger as approved for wear by all army officers of the Third Reich. The Army dagger was initially issued on May 4th, 1935 and was designed by Paul Casburg, It was produced in three different handle colors; white, yellow and orange. The dagger blade measures 10.25 inches and it is in the traditional stiletto style with a flat central ridge. The total length is 14.5 inches. The cross guard depicts the typical German National Eagle, clutching a German Nazi symbol surrounded by a wreath in its talons. It is overall a gorgeous example of a Nazi Army officer's Dress Dagger in just fantastic condition. The dagger is untouched and unaltered and has a brilliant blade with a fine maker's mark. This is a dagger you will be very proud to add to your display and is one that you will never have to make any apologizes for.
