Well here's an extremely rare dagger you almost never see for sale. Out of an advanced collection this is a rare opportunity to fill an open slot in the collection. The bright blade on this one is in great condition with nice crossgrain and a beautifully executed acid etched Horster maker mark! The blade rates Exc++/NM The undented scabbard has detailed bands with the correct chased line approximately 5mm in from the front scabbard fitting edges. The fittings are all secured with headless screws. The throat is integral to the upper fitting as we see on 95% of these. The blue leather on the scabbard has excellent coverage with some honest scrapes and pressure marks you would see on original examples. This dagger also employs the textbook aluminum fittings with upswept hand enhanced Customs eagle wings. The unique Customs pommel with acanthus leaves is matching in tone and patina. The leathered grip is in awesome shape and correctly wire wrapped with springy twisted wire. The unique Customs ferule again has the correct leaf pattern. This Piece was used in Tom Johnson's reference and was owned by Herman Boelke. A beautiful piece waiting for you to take it home!
