An early slant grip, tapered tang textbook Model 1935 - Wehrmacht Heer Dolch by E. & F. Hörster of Solingen. The blade on this one looks goof. The acid etched “E. & F. Hörster Solingen” maker mark is dark crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible, all the way from the hilt to the tip, as you shine it in the light! The fit is nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! The blade rates Exc+. It shows aghe grey and staning towards the tip along with the common surface scratches throughout. The leather buffer pad is lost to time. The steel based, nickel silver plated scabbard provides wonderful detail with the random pebbling and hand enhanced oak leaf and acorn bands! It remains completely dent free. There is some plating bubbling to the sides. The original throat retaining screws remains intact. The nickel-silver plated eagle crossguard provides beautiful details throughout the eagle’s head, wings, wreath, beak and chest. The pommel and ferrule are also beautifully detailed with proud oak leaves and acorns throughout. Early on Hörster purchased WKC parts, as is the case here. The desirable slant orange trylon grip is in good condition. It does have some cracks throughout. A good early piece!
