Gentlemen,

usually not my field of interest, but this one catched my eye, imo they don't grow on trees in that condition.

Yes, I know, you guys are saying: "Oh, that's just a late RZM !".
Yeah, it is, Höller I would say. But look how nicely this piece was done, how lovely the dark wood grip fits to the metal parts. Remarkably that they produced such quality that late. The cross grain runs into the tip, all is marked correctly, even the leather hanger.

Hope you like it.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Best;
Flyingdutchman

A very good quality RZM. An RZM NSKK was my very first piece and I still have it. The fits are better than I have seen on many earlier daggers. They have a place in any serious collection of SA daggers.

Gentlemen,

thank you so much for your comments on this dagger.

Yes, it is quite rare, but sometimes one can find such un-issued things. Personally I prefer edged weapons with some patina on it, but that's just me.

Thanks again and best regards;
