A nice looking Personalized DLV Knife! The bright blade on this one looks good. The acid etched “F. & A. Helbig Gaefler Steinbachkr. M.” maker mark is nicely executed! Some crossgrain continues to remain visible. It has a perfect tip and solid fit. The blade rates an Exc++. It shows surface scratches and age grey/spotting throughout. The original blue pebbled leather buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based blue pebbled leather covered scabbard looks excellent! Typical scuffs and a near perfect seam! The solid nickel-silver fittings look excellent! The ball has a few bruises and continues to retain a nice round shape. All four screws remain intact! The throat is correctly marked with the DLV logo. The scabbard/dagger fit is perfect. The solid nickel-silver hilt fitting look excellent perfectly matching the scabbard fitting in color, wear and patina! The wood based blue pebbled leather covered grip looks great! It shows the odd pressure mark and some fading matching the scabbard. The end of the crossguard is “K” (kaster) marked. The black enameled swastikas are practically perfect! Finally, the original hanger is intact with a solid well working nickel-silver clip. The oval nickel silver binding piece is personalized reading: “E.Durst”. An excellent example you would be proud to own!
