6/19/18 - This is an original WW2 Kriegsmarine dagger with the desirable engraved or "etched" blade. The blade is maker stamped by F.W. Holler and excellent overall. Very clean with minimal wear. The red leather stopper is still in tact although thin and shows wear. The handle is excellent with no cracks or chips, and a silver portepee is attached. The portepee has minimal fraying and is excellent as well. The scabbard has no dents or notable flaws. Guaranteed original and authentic.
