When seeking for rare SS em examples ...it does not get anymore rarer than this producer. 

Only a handful of these have been observed over the years and my guess would place a production number at 50 being a special order or bestowed as an honorary gift to a diplomat or a person of special interest. 

This example above has where it counts the most and that would be the excellent condition of the blade and its crossgrain. Opportunties like these do not come around at all andthis would be the time to acquire to complete an SS dagger collection by the producer type.
