    Beautiful dagger! It seems Höller is one of the makers that used this type of grip relatively often. I've seen several of these grips on Höller armies over the last few months.

    Nice Mario..love the specs inside the glass.

    I have always wondered what moved an officer to purchase a glass grip prone to being cracked..chipped or broken. I know maybe for the same reasons of Ivory grips..or trying to be hot shot officer..with a cool grip. Yet if it was me...I would want a cushy office job..and not on the front lines with this type of grip. Still its a nice piece of candy to look at.

    Love all the digits on the logo too. Nice. Regards Larry

    Well I am wondering if this grip was ever white! Most collectors agree that all army grips were once white. But how about this material? Would love to hear some thoughts.

    I often wondered if these were made to resemble Amber. They made artificial Ivory grips so did they make artificial Amber grips? We all know how the Germans loved Amber

    Exactly what I was thinking Tom! I think we can call this artificial amber.

    Most Army Dagger grips were made with material called Trolon, the term used at times {celluloid}
    There are shell over-wood base grip type... Shell/Plaster filled grip type and Solid type, These three types were the most common types.
    Glass/Amber Grips are rarely seen, mostly seen in the orange color , yellow is also out there. Glass/Amber were made of a harder material, Which made them brittle.
    Which I believe the Glass/Amber along with Ivory artificial Ivory and Ivory grip were all optional grips.
    IMO the first two types grips types was found normally in white, were as the solid material Trolon was not, time and light caused them to take on there own characteristic change in tone, based on the material used to make them.
    I am sure most you guys know this, just putting my two cents in

    As a side note it’s interesting the Holler has a WKC scabbard. I also believe all grips started as white (for now) the wood and plaster cores did not change color due to the different composition of the outer material. Here is a few pics for your guys files note the Luftwaffe’s on the wall one is a white grip the other is not and the army well…
