No maker.  Although unmarked, this dagger exhibits all of the textbook features associated with Voos produced double-etched blades: Impressive etch motifs, contrasting frosted panels, 2nd pattern Luftwaffe eagle with laurel sprigs, and heavy nickel plating. Medium orange celluloid grip is perfect with no cracks or chips and is complete with tight “spongy” wire wrap. Some gilt remains on the swastika of the pommel. High quality double-plated double-etched blade grades Near MINT showing only faint runner marks with no lifting, graying or speckling. 100% of the light gray background frosting remains in the etch pattern and blade is complete with tan leather blade buffer pad. Dent-free blued scabbard retains much the original factory lacquer. Scabbard suspension bands show superb detail to the oak leaf motif and scabbard is complete with two side-mounted flathead throat retaining screws. Comes complete with hangers (one broken hanger clip) and brown leather belt loop. Nice example of a rare 2nd model Luftwaffe dagger with Voos pattern double-etched blade. Near MINT.
