AUTHENTIC KINGDOM OF YUGOSLAVIA. M1924 ARTILLERY NCO DAGGER. One of the rarest daggers in the Kingdom of Yugoslavia army arsenal. The dagger was designed and used only by the non commisioned officers of the artillery units from 1924 till 1941. The Yugoslav army had a small artillery force with only about 200 NCO’s on active duty. Hence the small production and rarity of this dagger. According to sources, only about 600 pieces were ever produced. The dagger was manufactured locally, by the Vojno Tehnicki Zavod (war technology institute) in the city of Kragujevac. The grip is from wallnut wood. The guard is brass with serial number “7683” on one side and the letter “C” on the other. The steel blade has one fuller on one side and it is marked “BT3″ in cyrilics, wich is a VTZ – vojno tehnicki zavod – war technology institute. The scabbard is black painted metal. ALL STRONG AND FIRM.. NOTHING LOOSE OR WEAK. EXTREMELY HARD TO FIND! PLEASE SEE THE PHOTOS AS THEY FORM PART OF THE DESCRIPION. 2nd or 3rd item often ships for no extra charge when combined. Be sure to add me to your favourites list. AND PLEASE DO FEEL FREE TO ASK ANYTHING.

This is a good example of an early 20th Century German made Hunting Bowie Knife. It is mounted with a spear point blade that measures 8 1/4 inches in length which although remains very nice in its condition, does have surface staining to the polish. The blade wears the maker’s marking A. FEIST & Co SOLINGEN on one side of the ricasso. It wears a German silver cannon ball finial guard that nicely accentuates the beautiful and very healthy stag horn hilt grips. Overall the Knife measures 12 13/16 inches in length. There is no scabbard. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. Check out my other items. The item “German Hunting Spear Point Bowie Knife Stag Horn Hilt A.
