A First Pattern Early Luftwaffe Dagger by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie A.G.

This is a textbook example of a well preserved first pattern early Luftwaffe dagger by a rare maker. Measuring 490 mm with the scabbard on, this dagger features an exceptionally well preserved 304 mm long nickel-plated magnetic steel blade. The blade’s reverse ricasso is double-struck with the maker marked “WKC” on the reverse, along with the maker’s stylized knight logo. It features a double-edged flattened diamond-shaped design, with minimal scratches common to extraction and return to the scabbard, as well as two light dings on the edge of the blade, with a sharp tip. The thin black leather blade washer remains fully intact and attached to the dagger beneath the crossguard. Both side of the downward-sloping winged aluminum cross guard feature a gold-coloured sunwheel swastika in the center. The dark grip shows very minimal signs of wear, and is overall well preserved, with twelve rows of semi-tightly wrapped twisted wire. The aluminum pommel is also well preserved, but slightly loose, due to the slightly shrunken wooden grip. Similarly to the crossguard, the pommel also also features a bright, and well preserved gold-coloured sunwheel swastika on both sides. The scabbard is constructed of an aluminum base, with firmly attached aluminum fittings, and a black leather covering - all without major signs of wear, but with a slightly bent tip. Attached to the scabbard is an aluminum dagger hanger chain with a spring-loaded fastener, marked “Ges. Gesch.” and “OLC” on the reverse. Overall, this dagger is in extremely fine condition, serving as a textbook example of an early period Luftwaffe dagger.
