Title Army dagger, model 1936
Nationality German
Period c 1936-40
Sold

This dagger, maker marked Tiger Solingen, is a classic pre-war piece in a high quality EPNS finish. It would have been worn by army officers in the late 1930s and the early years of WW2 until 1942, when the high command ordered the officers to discontinue wearing them and replace them with a handgun.

This comes complete with its aluminium bullion knot and set of straps. There is some minor age wear to the straps. The blade has all the original cross grain polish and there is little or no wear to the EPNS finish on scabbard and mounts. The orange bakelite grip is perfect.

Tiger is a fairly uncommon maker for these daggers, being rather more famous for SS and SA pieces.
