With SS numbers 237351. Complete with a vertical hanger with SS and RZM mark. All
nickel fittings and black painted scabbard. However, at some time this
dagger has obviously been kept in a damp environment. This has affected
it in two ways. Whist the is no material missing the ebony grip has
several hairline cracks running its length on both sides. The grip is
fine and is in one complete piece, but it has obviously swollen and
shrunk again. SS runes button is perfect, as is the nickel grip eagle.
Both crossguard are solid nickel. Lower one is stamped with the Roman
numeral 'I'. The blade is entirely complete, perhaps slightly blunt, but
the surface is covered with small pitting spots. There is nothing deep.
The blade has been cleaned and polished many years ago and actually has
a decent finish to it. The SS motto is still quite deep and clear. The

undamaged. There is a leather vertical hanger attached to the upper
