Title Officer's dagger, model 1843
Nationality Swiss
Period c 1943-65?
Price £150.00

This is the classic Swiss officer's dirk, which replaced the sword in 1943. I can remember seeing these being worn by Swiss officers in the mid-60s. It is stamped at the forte 'ELSENER//SCHWYZ//VICTORIA', with a number on the reverse '155780'.

This is a good example, complete with its original porte epee. The blade has virtually all its factory finish, with a little minor staining at the point. Most of the original paintwork remains on the scabbard and the hilt has fruitwood grips. The leather hanger is also in good condition.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
