$6,450.00

WKC, Solingen knight’s torso TM. Brass hilt fittings show only light surface wear with uniform age patina to “flaming ball” pommel and Navy-style crossguard. Blue leather grip is near MINT with no rips, tears, or loss of color and is complete with twisted brass wire wrap. Plated blade grades EX++ with faint surface speckling and light runner marks, but no nicks to the cutting edge and no damage to blade tip and is complete with buffer pad. Hammered brass scabbard shows a deep age patina with much darkening to oakleaf embellished suspension bands, with one indentation to lower reverse but no damage to scabbard tip and is complete with two retaining screws. Dagger boasts an original knot grading EX with much fraying to lower length, as well as a pair of very rare MINT hangers. Unmarked hangers show virtually no wear to the facings and velvet backings, with no tears or fraying and are complete with gilded fittings. Gilded finish shows only faint thinning throughout. The hangers alone are worth a significant sum! This dagger and its accouterments are simply not to be missed!
