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. Generic pattern aluminum hilt fittings show light surface wear with much factory lacquer remaining which has turned a dark amber color. Medium orange celluloid grip showing superb age toning is perfect with no cracks or chips and is complete with tight twisted brass wire wrap. 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 dark blue/black leather blade buffer pad. Dent-free blued scabbard retains much of the original factory lacquer which has aged to a yellow color. Scabbard suspension bands show superb detail to the oak leaf motif and scabbard is complete with two side-mounted flathead throat retaining screws. Nice example of a rare 2nd model Luftwaffe dagger with Voos pattern double-etched blade. EX++/Near MINT.
