Original WW2 era (and certainly one of a kind) fighting dagger made from what looks like a much older European rapier. This so-called “theater knife” was expertly made by an unknown soldier or a sailor from a vintage rapier and whatever else was available at hand. A beefy split-stag and brass guard handle has a very positive grip; the pommel is decorated with a hand-cut bronze flower-shaped butt cap. The guard looks like a re-worked original rapier handguard cut into a half-moon shape. The handle is solid; all parts are tight with no play. The blade is a sharpened on one side; the tip is intact. The quality of work is excellent; all parts have a perfect fit with no play whatsoever – this dagger was definitely made by a very skilled and talented knifemaker.
The dagger is about 13-3/8″ / 34 cm overall; the blade is about 8-3/4″ / 22.2 cm; the blade is very sharp still; the tip is intact. An old stag has a nice amber shade to it; no chips or repairs. There is no scabbard. This original WW2 theater fighting dagger is in 100% serviceable condition still. Don’t miss your chance to add this unique WW2 Fighter to your collection! I have a similar-looking WW2 fighter available for sale – please take a look.
