Title NSKK dirk, RZM marked M7/68
Nationality German
Period 1941
Price £450.00

This is the SA dirk 1933 pattern, modified with a black finish to the scabbard by order of Korpsfuhrer Huhnlein in 1936. The RZM code stands for the firm Lauterjung & Co of Solingen. The NSSK were the motorised arm of the SA, providing it with truck and motorcycle elements, co-ordinating training programmes with the Wehrmacht in war time.

Good examples of NSKK daggers are becoming harder to find and this one ticks most of the boxes on condition. The paintwork appears to be original, possibly an early period repaint. The blade retains virtually all original factory finish, eg extant grind marks. The wood of the grip shows some age staining and a small gouge to the obverse with some lifting of the EPNS finish on the mounts at the edges of the woodwork. The scabbard has a few old dents on the leading edge. There is no damage to the top nut. Two screw heads have been somewhat mangled. There are some minor dents to the bottom chape.

The pommel arrived safely today... It's a nice little object and really quite tactile... As usual, it was a pleasure to do business with you and I look forward to finding something else in your stock to tempt me.
