Original WWII German 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger by WMW
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger in good condition. These aluminum mounts are done in the typical fashion, the pommel being heart shaped. It is nicely rendered throughout the oak leaves, with fine hand enhancements, and the swastikas are nice and bold.
The crossguard features the usual eagle, flying to the left and clutching a swastika. There is little wear on this guard, and the reverse has a good, crisply pebbled panel. The upper quillon arms have engraved oak leaves and acorns, with fine pebbling added to the surfaces.
The white grip of this dagger is most attractive. This grip is in perfect condition but for a tiny hairline crack on the obverse grip, it is very solid. The grip is tightly wrapped with springy aluminum wire.
The scabbard is a nice example missing most of its nickel finish, with the convex bands. The throat is retained by two flat head side screws. A very nice scabbard with no dents or dings.
The blade of this dagger is also in good condition. It is still nice and bright and has some of the original crossgrain and a needle-like tip. There areas of age. The reverse ricasso is etched with:
The original pebbled leather blade buffer is in place within the deep recesses of the guard.
A very nice iconic 2nd Model Luftwaffe Dagger.
