Title NSKK 1933 pattern dirk
Nationality German
Period c 1933
Sold

Nice example, with fruitwood grip and solid nickel silver mounts. Only faulted by modern paintwork and slightly scruffy nature of black leather strap. Complete with original belt loop, showing black staining fading to brown, indicating, together with the black strap, that it is an original NSKK dirk which someone has repainted at some stage.

The blade is inscribed 'Alles fur Deutschland' (everything for Germany) on one side and with the maker mark and logo of 'C.&R. LINDER SOLINGEN WEYER'. The reverse crossguard is marked 'Ns' for Nieder Sachsen (Lower Saxony). These dirks were carried by the motorised Stormtroops throughout the Third Reich period. Both before and during the war, their function was the training of Hitler Youth for tank service at the front, amongst other things. A friend of mine's uncle was a member of this unit, as his prospects in the Bavarian civil service were enhanced by membership!

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
