SS 1933 MODEL DAGGER BY BOKER COMPLETE WITH VERTICAL HANGER.

SS 1933 MODEL DAGGER BY BOKER COMPLETE WITH VERTICAL HANGER.

This is an exceptional example and SS daggers by Boker are one of the most desirable makers to find. All early nickel silver fittings, the lower crossguard is stamped I for Berlin. The black wooden grip is in fine condition and it is inset with silver eagle and SS runic badge. The blade is in extremely nice condition with much factory finish remaining to the SS motto, the reverse side is etched with the Boker art deco style trade mark featuring there tree design and makers details Boker Solingen, this pattern of trade mark was used by Boker from the late summer of 1934 for probably about a year, the earlier trade mark was a small oval and is often seen on Rohm daggers. Black anodised scabbard is also in fine condition with no dents or damage, it is fitted with matching nickel silver fittings, the lower ball has a few tiny dents from wear but difficult to see until closely examined. The dagger is complete with original leather vertical hanger, I doubt if it has ever been removed from the dagger and I am not going to take it of to look for markings, there is a green residue which you often see when leather has been in contact with nickel for a very long time and it is a nice feature to see. It would be difficult to find a nicer SS dagger. Exc++

VICTORIAN SWORD STICK WITH BRONZE FIGURAL HEAD OF DANTE.

The long wooden shaft is in excellent condition, pulling the handle away from the shaft reveals a long lethal steel blade. There is some very old twine or string wrapped around the very top of the blade to make it fit tighter in the scabbard.

Danti was born in the city of Florence in Italy in 1265, he served in the military and also trained as an apothecary but his carrier as a poet is what he is remembered for, he died in 1331. A most unusual antique sword stick. Exc++
