    Looks good to me, a 4th model with 'B' type cross guard.

    Hi 3T..you had the thread in the right forum..as this belongs in the Heer forum..which I will move it back there for you. A good source reference on this topic would be Tom Wittmans Exploring the Dress Daggers of the German Army. Wittmann Antique Militaria

    Sorry Ned its not a generic B guard.

    Typical Generic A dagger, Tiger was one of those smaller companies that used Generic parts.
    Upgrade to an Ivory grip or etched blades could be ordered.
    This one has a later type C grip, produced from 1937-->1941/42

    This dagger has a nice patina and looks fine to me.

    Regards,
    Ger

    I like this dagger. I'm fond of that crossguard too.

    Glad to help out 3T...yet there is a greater expansion of learning to be found right here on the Heer forum from some of the greatest minds in collecting this type of dagger. Members such as World renown Tom Kendall..dr73.. Heers 68 ,, Gerrit . Tom Wittmanns book is a great starting point..and the icing on the cake can be found right within this Heer forum from those names I mentioned..and the exhaustive thread content also found therein. Enjoy your stay..and looking forward to any input you may have or edged beauties you would share with the community here. Regards Larry
