A First Pattern Railway Dagger by Robert Klaas
A First Pattern Railway Dagger by Robert Klaas - This the finest example of this type we have had the pleasure of offering. It is an "untouched" example with a dark toning throughout. Produced by Robert Klaas (kissing cranes) TM. Plated silver hilt fittings show minimal wear with a pleasent patina to the pommel and crossguard. The telling black celluloid grip exhibits only very light surface wear with no cracks or chips. The blade is a prime example that grades near mint with only very light surface wear and runner marks. Leather blade buffer pad is present. The scabbard is dent-free with a drak patina. Scabbard bands are marked with an asterisk (which is standard for Klaas-produced daggers). Rare, original dagger.
