    Hello to all: new here, I'd read the Nick's thread about army dagger database and decide to put my two cents on it: A C. Gustav Spitzer, I liked it very much, it's a pity but the blade has been polished, you can see on the logo surface. Cheers!

    I'll have a go.

    It looks to have the early type Spitzer logo and a very nice (and rare?) Pack type aluminium crossguard, but the pommel appears not to be made of the same alloy, is this unusual? Could it be a parts dagger or otherwise tampered with or did they come like this??

    A little worn for my taste, but I like it. I'm guessing that
    the crossguard has been replaced to Re-Nazify
    this dagger.........

    Hai to all:

    Recently I have aquired an Army dagger and need a 2nd opinion about it, the grip is made of plastic material, no mark on blade. Sorry about photo quality.
    TIA

    LOL!! Well #1..its good to see that everyone is on top of the game,,and its refreshing to know also that memory has served well as this is a 5 yr old post from the WAF. Good memory.
    I have the same feelings as this is a parts dagger but I am reserved on the pommel not being authentic. Could be the photos or flash used. Regardless, I feel this is more of a put together,,recently. JMO.

    And Gerrit....No you dont get candy...you get beer here ...sorry! Regards Larry

    Hi to all here! Gerrit is right about the first post, When I bought it (on the net) the photos provided by the seller doesn't show the maker mark because is so erased that I can't notice it, when the dagger ariives I discover the mark and makes new photos of it. Of course I didn't change nothing in it, is in the same condicition that when arrived home.

    best regards
