DESCRIPTION

Beautiful Luftwaffe dagger acquired directly from the English family of the soldier who returned with it as a war souvenir after WWII many years ago.  Features a beautiful artifical damascus blade with raised gold motifs on both sides.  The dagger was most likely made by the Krebs firm.     Exterior bears beautifully gold colored swastikas on each side of the pommel.  Scabbard is very dark, and is actually heavily silver plated.  The blade is small rosebud artificial damascus, and bears raised gold motifs on both sides of the blade.  The obverse depicts a floral panel, inside which is written "Lever dood üs Slaw" which is Plattdeutsch (a local dialect) which means "better to be dead than to be a slave."  The reverse bears a set of initials giving a clue as to the original owner's name.  These raised elements retain over 90% of the gold coloring.
