Description

Very rare 1937 Water Customs Dagger (Wasserzoll). 

"ALCOSO Solingen" maker marked blade. Slightly stained. Dark blue leather finished handle with wire wrapping. Signs of use but no damage. Gilt aluminium fittings. Please note: the crossguard is minimally magnetic, which is absolutely correct and typical for ALCOSO daggers (a mixture of aluminium and iron). Matching officer's portepee. 

Dark blue leather finished steel scabbard with gilt iron fittings (magnetic). No dents. All three screws in place. With the original hangers. Constructed of black ribbed silk straps and gilt metal parts. Both snap clips are fully working. In addition, a leather belt loop.

A worn dagger!
