Thank You Ė Itís nice to see another example you really took this topic to the next level by posting those other two examples. Interesting this 2nd example is fitted with what looks like a generic scabbard this could be another clue to the time frame this guard was used.

Unfortunately the pic is very small but I think we see enough to be able to compare.
We can say that on rare occasions VOOS did use this crossguard type "regularly".
Tom, your photographic skills are unbeatable. Wish I could do at least 10% of them.
It is the icing of the cake, when such a rare bird is pictured in such a tasteful, skillful manner.
Regards,

Tom,
That third one from Gercolector, I do not think that scabbard was originally matched to the dagger. Could be wrong but pot metal Generic scabbard bands are normally very late.

Jon thanks I was wondering about a mismatch? Was not sure as I thought Voos may have used some generic scabbards.

Tom and Jon, I was thinking the same thing when I saw that scabbard, mismatch...

I am wondering whether the company reserved the use of the single oval TM for etched daggers only, even though Toms outstanding dagger above contradicts this theory?.

It would be really helpful if anyone with a Voos, etched or not, could post some pictures.




Degens,
I don't know if this is mid-period or what but it has a tapered tang and slant grip. It's so black that I had to take it into direct sunlight so you can see the hilt. -Serge-

The best crossguard has to be the Alcoso High Lift.



It's currently in my auction:
