No maker. Although unmarked, this dagger exhibits all 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. Aluminum hilt fittings show light surface wear with excellent detail to pommel with pebbled background surfaces and crossguard with relief-style oak leaves featuring left-leaf-over-right-leaf motif on the upper surface of the quillons. Light orange grip shows some surface wear with one hairline crack and two small chips near grip ferrule, and is complete with twisted wire wrap. High-quality, plated, double-etched blade grades EX+/EX++ showing faint runner marks with a few small specks of wear, but no nicks to cutting edges. Etched panels retain 99% of the light gray background frosting and blade is complete with leather blade buffer pad. Steel scabbard retains much of the original factory gray finish with no dents or damage to the scabbard ball. Scabbard suspension bands show superb detail to the oak leaf motif with pebbled background surfaces and two side-mounted retaining screws. Nice example of a 2nd model Luftwaffe dagger with Voos pattern double-etched blade.
