Original Item: Only One Available. This is a fine Solingen-Produced totally original WWII German 2nd Model Naval Dagger, complete with the original “lightning bolt” style brass scabbard. Additionally, it also has an original bullion portepee tied in the correct Naval style, making for a great look.
This example looks to have been purchased later in the war, as many of the appointments are a simplified style. The pommel eagle has a nicely vaulted design on the Swas it is sitting on. The crossguard is the standard type, and has the portepee wrapped around it. The grip is in very good condition with a bit of age, but still has a great original ivory color, with minimal fading or discoloration. The original wire wrapping is no longer present, and we do not see any remnants, just some impressions in the groove where it would have been.
The portepee itself is in good condition, though it does show light wear and some oxidation, which has given it a lovely golden hue. It definitely has been tied on for some time, as indicated by the oxidation and wear pattern, and is most likely the original purchased with the dagger. Scabbard locking button is present, however the spring inside has failed, so it no longer holds the scabbard in place.
The blade is a very good example, in bright steel as opposed to the often seen nickel plating….
