Germany, SS. A Model 1936 Chained Leader’s Dagger Named to W. Knapp, SS Member 31411

(SS-Ehrendolch). Instituted in December of 1933 by Heinrich Himmler. (Issued 1933-1942). Measuring 374 mm with the scabbard on, featuring a 221 mm long magnetic nickel-plated steel blade, with factory dull edges and a pointy tip. The blade is diamond shaped, and is etched with the SS motto “Meine Ehre heißt Treue” on the obverse, depicting very faint marks common to extraction and return to the scabbard as well as very faint bruising. The cross-guard is constructed of nickel-silver, with light scratches to the surface. It is decorated with eight un-darkened grooves and fits snug with the black hardwood grip. The sides of the cross-guard facing the dagger are marked with “W. Knapp, SS-N.:31411” in clear stamping. The grip itself is free from dents or cracks, fitting tightly against the upper and lower cross-guard. The German national eagle sits snug in its place and is level with the wooden grip, without significant gaps between the eagle and the grip. The roundel sits equally snug and flush with the grip, featuring the SS runes embedded in black enamels. The pommel nut is tight, with minor marks from previous loosening. The scabbard is that of a Model 1936 chained dagger, constructed of black-painted steel, with nickel-silver fittings, with all four fastening screws present. Attached to the scabbard is a multi-link chain decorated with “skull and bones” motifs, as well as SS runes. The spring-loaded clip at the end of the chain is functional, featuring a black leather belt loop attached. This dagger shows light signs of period use, without obvious signs of excessive wear or abuse, and is in overall better than very fine condition.
