    Appears to be a nice EF Horster ...with sailing ship motif.

    can you supply a few more pics of the scabbard and crossguard ?

    Hi guys,
    I am sorry, but I think I have only a bad news about this dagger.
    Best,

    Hi Stevade.
    Yes, of course. First of all the blade. With a sailing ship etching and a logo on the wrong side of the ricasso is the blade in my opinion postwar. The grip is not a Hörster one. I don’t like the crossguard as well, it’s also not a Hörster one. To determine of the scabbard are better pictures needed, but on the first glance I don’t like it too. That’s all is of course only my humble opinion.
    Best,
    Oleg.

    Hi Oleg

    Here are other Hörster Kriegsmarine Daggers like yours ..... these are not post war fakes as the are advertised with some of the top well known dealers.
    Some with the catch and manufacturers trademark on the front of the blade, and some at the back of the blade.

    Unless you know different?

    Hello Stevade,
    unfortunately the fact that a dagger is on a known dealer's website is not a guarantee of originality.
    If you would have a look on the first and second pictures of the dagger with a logo on the backside of ricasso, you will see that this dagger has a crossguard not by Hörster. A release button has been replaced as well. The grip seems also not to be a Hörster one and it has been turned up. In my opinion is it not a good dagger. By the way, not the only one on this website.
    Best,
    Oleg.

    It might be worth having a look also at Danny's thread "Kriegsmarine Dagger Collection" dr73 and post #46 for his Horster example.
