7/26/19 - Original and excellent condition Nazi Army dress dagger. Rare maker "Rudolf Bechel" etched at the hilt of the 10-1/2" blade. The blade is bright, fully grained and with a fine, needle-like tip. The tip has a very tiny distortion, but nearly imperceptible. The crossguard bird retains good detailing throughout. The handle is a deep amber color with no chips or cracks. The scabbard is in fine condition with no dents and a nice looking age patina. Guaranteed authentic.
