German Fighting Knife Dagger
German Staghorn Grip Fighting Knife. This fighting knife was made during the German Imperial era and used through WW2. The blade is constructed of die forged steel which was lightly sharpened over time. The hilt, flashguard & pommel have a black finish. The blade of this knife is 6- 1/8 inches long (156mm), single edged with a false edge that runs back about 1/3 of the way. The blade exhibits slight graying on its surface (photos 3 – 7). The black painted steel scabbard is the typical fighting knife type that tapers towards the tip (photo 10). It is constructed of steel and retains over 85% of its original black paint. The upper reverse of the scabbard has a brown leather hanger and belt loop. The hangar is retained to the scabbard by steel rivets. The leather is in excellent condition and the snap clip still works (photos 1 – 2). The male portion of the snap retainer clip is missing some of its surrounding leather and was repaired in the distant past (photo 11). The staghorn styled grip is 100% intact and held in place by steel rivets with dressed heads on both sides. This knife is a very fine, and rarely seen, Imperial Bayonet Knife.
