Title NSKK dagger with hanging strap and belt loop
Nationality German
Period 1939
Sold

This is an RZM marked blade, dated 1939, by Gustav Spitzer of Solingen. These daggers were worn by the motorised elements of the Storm Troops in the 1930s. They were responsible for training the motor transport section of the German army, eg motor cycles, trucks and, during the war, tank crews.

The paintwork on the scabbard is in excellent shape, retaining some 90%+ original finish, with no modern repaint applied. The grip is a nice fruitwood example. The scabbard mounts are steel with an EPNS finish. The hilt mounts are pot metal, also with an EPNS finish, largely intact but with some bubbling apparent. The grip eagle is an EPNS variety rather than the later aluminium type. Altogether a fine example of an RZM NSKK dagger.

The tipstaff arrived today and it's beautiful. I couldn't be more pleased. You're a pleasure to deal with.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
