Small world and your timing is impeccable. You mentioned you had read the other post and my comments regarding the Wusthof. On that thread I mentioned that Voos and Wusthof both used two extremely rare cross-guards. Your's shown above, being one and the other shown on the Wusthof thread.
Here is another early Voos owned by a good friend ( I am sure he will not mind me sharing his link ) but bearing the alternative cross-guard shown on the Wusthof thread.
Your dagger is a peach, lovely early Voos trademark and fittings, it must have just missed out on a slant grip but that is really irrelevant. Is the blade tang tapered?
Congrats, lovely rare piece!.
Nice find Ronnie!!............Hunting the trophy to be had for all to admire,, is the best part of the hobby

The Blade is like a mirror, and the hangers dress it up perfectly! Excellent find! Now put a nice minty portapee back on it!

Hi, your dagger is very nice, I´m looking for years to find similar early EMIL VOOS dagger, and I can´t find it, you are very lucky! There are so many collectors that collect and hunting for daggers like yours, but only few daggers left
great dagger and looks even better in the flesh , and thanks for the big brekkie mate trying to sober me up ;-)
Lovely dagger Ronnie ! I love the marks left on the crossguard by the original portepee !
