EMIL VOOS, SOLINGEN with stylized tree trunk and snake.  Hilt fittings show very light surface wear with superb detail to the fittings with factory darkening remaining in the recesses of the oak leaf pommel and crossguard eagle feathering.  Deep yellow grip shows only light wear and no chips or cracks and is complete with tight springy aluminum wire wrap.  High quality plated, double-etched, unmarked Emil Voos style blade grades EX++ with no blemishes, age, or scabbard runner marks. The etch pattern is a “textbook” pattern featuring a intertwining floral pattern and Luftwaffe Eagle to center obverse. Lower portion of etch features “three driples”, which is correct for a maker marked Emil Voos pattern. Blade is complete with leather blade buffer pad.  Grip is complete with a 42cm aluminum bullion portepee and appears original to the dagger and grades EX++.  Dent-free steel scabbard shows very minor surface wear to aluminum oak leaf scabbard bands and rings.
