DDR Army Officer's Dagger

This dagger has a 252 mm long nickel-plated steel blade, with unsharpened edges, remaining bright and crisp, having a very sharp, near perfect needle-like tip. The obverse ricasso is numbered "0 22 67", with a leather washer at the base of the blade. There are faint scratches overall on the blade, common to extraction and return to the scabbard, exhibiting a natural shine. The crossguard is also nickel-plated steel with acorn icons on either end. Just above the crossguard is a solid push release, to unlock the scabbard from the dagger. The handle is fabricated from an off-white synthetic material, with five ridges, creating a firm grip, the handle completed with a pebbling at the end of the pommel, the dagger measuring 362 mm in length. The accompanying scabbard has a metallic black steel painted body, with a nickel-plated chape with ball finial at the closed end. The locket is also nickel-plated steel, displaying the coat-of-arms of the German Democratic Republic (DDR) above a elongated framed oakleaf on the obverse, while the reverse has a blank elongated shield. To the right of the locket insignia there are two rings attached on the side, for suspension of the dagger hangers, the scabbard measuring 25 mm x 290 mm overall. The dagger hangers have silver bullion uppers with gray wool backers, the accompanying hardware fabricated from silvered bronze, exhibiting oakleaf designs, with slight gilt wear on the upper clip, measuring 52 mm x 290 mm. Also included is a 15 mm x 68 mm belt loop, with matching silver bullion uppers and gray wool backers, the ends sewn together to create a loop to be slid over a belt and comes with a D-ring for attachment to the upper clip of the hangers. The dagger and scabbard retain their original finishes, along with their ever present DDR look, in extremely fine condition. In their cardboard box of issue, with divided sections, exhibiting wear from storage, the box in near very fine condition.
