The matching scabbard still retains much silver plating .The dagger has a very attractive matching black age patina as it has not been cleaned for a very time.Complete with brown leather RAD officers straps in fine condition.

ITALIAN MVSN 1925 MODEL OFFICERS DAGGER.
This is a very rare example of the Italian Fascist 1925 model poniard dagger and was the first dagger adopted by the Italian Fascist government, some parts of these rare daggers were produced in 1925 by using left over parts of Italian bayonets, an early version of recycling. Steel hilt still retaining much original silver plating showing wear on the high points.The black wooden grip plates are in fine condition and both sides are inset with the Italian Fascist insignia.The blade on this model dagger is blued cruciform steel and almost certainly they used up old bayonet blades to produce these.The crossguard is stamped on the reverse side MVSN and on the reverse side with issue number A773. The scabbard is in nice condition and again it is almost certainly constructed from an Italian bayonet scabbard with two scabbard bands and belt loop added at the factory. A very interesting dagger, it has been some years since i have had one to offer for sale as they seldom come available and especially in nice condition. [Condition: Exc++]

SS ROHM HONOUR DAGGER BY HAMMESFAHR WITH VERTICAL LEATHER HANGER.
This is a rare SS dagger which was originally etched on the blade with the Rohm inscription, when Rohm was declared a traitor on June 30th 1934 and executed the owners of these daggers were ordered to remove the offending Rohm inscription from the blade, only 9900 of these rare daggers were awarded in 1934 to the very early SS members compared to several hundred thousand of the standard SS service dagger making this a very rare dagger even with a ground inscription. All early nickel silver hilt fittings, the reverse lower guard is stamped III.The black ebony grip is in fine condition with no chips, cracks or other damage and it is inset with the SS insignia and silver eagle.The blade is also very nice and still retains some cross-grain finish, the obverse side features the SS motto, the reverse side has been professionally ground to remove the offending Rohm dedication and also most of the makers trade mark, only the lower part of the trade mark remains but the maker is obviously Gottlieb Hamessfahr Solingen, there is some faint spotting to the blade but it is still very bright and retaining much original finish and is actually very nice. Complete with black anodized scabbard which show's light wear but no dents or other damage, even the ball on the lower nickel silver fitting is perfect. Complete with rare black leather frog hanger.This is a very nice example of a rare SS Rohm honour dagger which are very difficult to find even with the insription removed. [Condition: Exc++]

THIRD REICH ENLISTED MANS FORESTRY DAGGER, UNUSUAL VARIATION BY THE RARE MAKER PUMA.
Although i have sold many forestry cutlasses over the years i do not recall having one before by Puma, it also has some unusual makers features. Gilt brass hilt still retains some original gilt finish and it has a nice age patina, the clamshell is the fluted type.The fine quality stag horn grip plates are in mint condition and they are complete with all six acorns, the acorns are different to the standard type and are much more attractive and stylized and are obviously a feature of this rare maker.The blade is double etched with forestry and hunting designs, the blade etch is slightly different to what is usually seen and is again obviously unique to this maker, the blade has some faint age spotting but it is still very bright and attractive. Complete with black leather scabbard complete with gilt brass fittings. This is a very interesting dagger and would be a fine edition for a forestry collection and for some reason the enlisted mans forestry dagger with stag grip is always harder to find than the officers model.
