7/18/18 - This is an original WW2 production nazi army dagger made by Christianwerke. Christianwerke made army daggers are one of the more scarce makers, and therefore demands a premium price to other army daggers. This dagger is in good condition with some oxidation and areas of light discoloration on the blade. The maker-marked side of the blade has slightly more wear than the reverse side. The handle is excellent with no cracks or chips. There's surface wear / finish loss on the pommel and hand guard. The hand guard does have some minor "play" but isn't loose. The scabbard is original with no dents. Guaranteed all original and authentic.
