ARMY OFFICERS DAGGER
The Army dagger can be found in several type’s, with engraved blades and ivory grips, etc but we are going to describe the standard type of this dagger..
The metal fittings of the hilt and the entire scabbard are normally silver plated, however, in late wartime production, several less expensive finishes were utilized (aaluminum). The pommel of the Army dagger bears a relief design of oak leaves and secures the blade to the hilt. The grip can vary in color from white to orange. The crossguard shows on the obverse the national eagle with stretched wings and wreath encircled swastika in his talons. The standard blade of this dagger is a plain blade without a motto, unless the purchaser desired to order, an engraved blade or Damascus blade. The scabbard is made of steel and has two suspension bands which are decorated with an oak leaf motif. On the scabbard bands are rings to put the hangers on. The complete length of the dagger is 40 cm. The dagger has normally a aaluminum portepee which is 42 cm long. The hangers for this dagger, are a double strap, detachable fabric hanger, constructed of aaluminum facing sewn to field grey velvet backs. The buckles are oval and bear oak leaf design.Sometimes the owner of the dagger did jeweler-engrave his dagger with his monogram and/or with an important date in his career.
