UNUSUAL SMALL SIZE DAGGER.
I am not exactly sure what country this dagger originates from as i have never seen one before but it has a number of features that are reminiscent of Yugoslavian daggers of WW2 so there is a very good chance that this is where it originates from. The dagger measures about 25cm long and so is about the same size as the German Hitler youth knife so possibly this is some type of youth knife. Brass crown pommel, the black celluloid grip is in perfect condition. Near mint plain blade. The scabbard is completely decorated with oakleaves. Complete with leather frog type hanger. If you can identify this dagger I would be very interested to hear from you. [Condition: Near Mint]
