Naval Dagger - Named to 'Helmut Dinsen'

This dagger features a beautifully engraved 250 mm nickel-plated steel blade. With unsharpened edges, it remains clean, crisp, and in an excellent state. The blade's reverse ricasso is maker marked ROBt KLAAS SOLINGEN with the company's kissing cranes emblem, while the blade itself exhibits a beautifully engraved ornate design on both sides. There is only the common minor wear on both sides, along with some very light surface scarring. Nevertheless it exhibits a natural shine, in stands near extremely fine condition. Importantly, this blade is unique, in that the owner's name, "Helmut Dinsen", is scratched into the obverse ricasso. The fittings are gilded and intact, bearing an anchor on both sides of the cross guard, exhibiting crisp detail and high relief, with a blade release button. The off-white synthetic grip is smooth and free of chipping, along with being tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The pommel exhibits the Naval eagle standing upon a wreathed swastika. Both crossguard and pommel present nice patinas, with the hilt completed by an original silver bullion portepee in the correct tie. The ornately designed scabbard appears with only tiny dent between the bands. Both two bands display the detailed oakleaf pattern, all with the gilding intact, finished nicely by brass rings. A fine example of outstanding workmanship, in extremely fine condition.
