A recent edition - I was fortunate to buy this from the family of the returning veteran. This early slant Ernst Pack & Sohne army has everything you could ever hope for on an early Pack. The guard is an early brass based type -2 you dont see this crossguard often certainly much less then the Pack type-1. The pommel and scabbard bands are heavily enhanced by a talented engraver at the Pack factory you have seen his work before and quite unmistakable when viewed. The dagger overall is minty with no issues worth mentioning. The army came with some early hangers with brass based fittings and leather tops as you can see the top fitting has torn loose and gone to time. I have been promised a picture of the veteran when I receive it I will post it the picture will stay with the dagger while under my watch.

Hard to beat an early Pack. Outstanding dagger Tom!
The workmanship applied to them is superb. I love that pommel!
Almost enough to rekindle the love affair but for the fact that
daggers like this have all but dried up.

Damn I wish I had half your luck! wink

Congrats!

Thanks for looking guy's - VB your right these slants are becoming difficult to find but as John Z says the hunts part of the fun isn't it ? I was unsure of the condition when I bought this as the sellers pictures were very poor but the uncertainty quickly diminished when I pulled this out of the box ! Its a real pleasure to share with fellow collectors.
