German Luftwaffe 2nd Model Officer’s Dagger F.W. Höller
Luftwaffe dagger, measuring 428mm with its scabbard on, with a 255mm nickel-plated magnetic steel blade, having a slightly bent tip (only visible from profile). The blade’s reverse ricasso is marked with the maker mark of “F. W. Holler of Solingen”, depicting overall excellent surface condition. The black leather washer at the crossguard junction is present. The cross guard is constructed of cast aluminum, and is in the shape of an attacking eagle clutching a swastika in its talons.. It features an off-white celluloid grip with ten rows of twisted silvered wrap in the recessed of the ribbed grip without interruption, but with a D shaped crack in the celluloid across the grip. The pommel is also constructed of aluminum, exhibiting a swastika with an oak leaf design. The pommel itself is tight, as are all fitting. General condition of handle is better than very good, as seen in images.
The scabbard is constructed of silvered metal (magnetic), with a traditional pebbled finish, ball final, and with the throat retained by a single mounted screw, and aluminum oak leaf bands with rings.
Overall a very nice example and displays very well.
