Here we have a Model 1934 DLV Knife (German Air Sports Association) (Deutscher Luftfahrt-Verband Fliegermesser) by F. & A. Helbig Gaefler of Steinbach Kr. M. The bright blade on this one looks good. The engraved "F. & A. Helbig Gaefler Steinbach Kr. M." maker mark is nicely executed! good crossgrain remains all the way from the hilt to tip. It has a perfect tip and solid fit. The blade has some minor age and spotting, it rates an easy Exc+. The original blue pebbled leather buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based blue pebbled leather covered scabbard looks excellent! Typical scuffs and hits and it retains a near perfect seam! The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings look excellent. The ball is undamaged. All four screws remain tightly intact. The throat is textbook marked with the DLV emblem. 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 some age throughout. The end of the crossguard is "K" marked, again textbook for you guys checking me against the references. The black enameled swastikas are practically perfect! Finally, the original hanger is intact with a solid well working nickel-silver clip. An excellent example you will be proud to own!
