This Nazi dagger is a mirror of the one designed for naval Nazi officers in 1938. Featuring a 9" stainless steel double edge blade with polished silver engravings stretching up to the tang guard. The wrapping design featured on the handle is one of the original characteristics. Includes antique silver plated blade scabbard. 15" overall.
The original Nazi dagger was authorised by Hitler in May 1938 to commemorate his visit to Rome. It had a stylised eagle’s head pommel and a mother of pearl grip.
The cross guard featured a national eagle with upturned spread wings; the eagles face to the viewer’s right. The eagle’s feet held a wreath with a Nazi swastika at the center.
The scabbard was identical to the Army dagger but had larger oak leaf suspension rings. The scabbard was silver plated.
