This is the short model sidearm for the Feuerwehr, introduced about 1936, for wear by senior NCOs and was worn as a 'walking out' weapon, with a Feuerwehr portepee tied to the belt frog. The belt buckle would have been the standard Gott Mit Uns variety surrounding a marching swastika. There are no maker's marks.

This 20cm blade has no swage and a somewhat wider fuller than the other more frequently encountered version.

This has a steel hilt, not the more commonly encountered pot metal type, which retains some 95% plus original EPNS finish. The scabbard paintwork has old refinish to it. Both bakelite grips are perfect. There is some minor bubbling of the EPNS finish to both sides of the blade near the point.

testimonials

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.

I should have written sooner, but I did want to let you know that the photos arrived safely and are absolutely fabulous. I could not be happier with them.

Thanks for the excellent service and great photos. I hope we have occasion to do business together again.
