A Model 1938 - Deutsches Rotes Kreuz (German Red Cross) Hewer. The blade on this one looks good. The crossgrain is easily visible and the sharp teeth to the saw back are in perfect condition. It is stamped “Ges. Geschützt.”. The fit is perfect. The blade rates an Exc++. It shows finger prints, age grey and spotting throughout along with the common surface scratches. The brown leather buffer pad continues to remain intact. The steel based, black enamel painted scabbard looks great! It continues to retain 98%+ paint coverage and it remains completely dent free! The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings look excellent, matching the hilt perfectly. All four screws continue to remain intact. The alloy based nickel-silver plated hilt looks excellent! The Third Reich red cross medallion on the crossguard has fine vaulting and detail! The correct bakelite checkered/smooth grip plates are in perfect condition! They are tightly secured by two oxidized steel screws. This one also comes with a fine crazed black leather frog that is split at the stress point. Overall it’s a solid example.
