Title Luftwaffe flyer's dirk, 2nd pattern
Nationality German
Period c 1936-45

This is a nice example, with an Eickhorn blade in near factory finish, a nice silver-plated scabbard and the original gilding on the swastika on both sides of the pommel. These dirks were worn by all flight personnel of the Luftwaffe in WW2.

The only downside is the zinc crossguard, which, sadly, is showing signs of decomposition. Having said that, the zinc crossguard conforms to the Eickhorn factory pattern and undoubtedly was part of the dagger when it was made.

I am more and more pleased with the sword, and am wondering whether to do an article on it...
