Description:

The use of black plastic as grip material for Wehrmacht uniform daggers is uncommon, and has been the cause of speculation. Theories include that it was intended for wear at funerals and other somber occasions, or that it was to be painted a branch-appropriate color in lieu of colored celluloid. 14 1/8" OAL, 9 5/8" blade, standard hilt and pommel, metal sheath and a silver ribbon faced hanger. The blade shows a slight bend near the tip, otherwise good.
