    Hi guys,
    I would like to get some opinions on this KM before purchasing.
    Im not an expert on theese daggers, but would like to add a few KM to my collection. It looks unworn, beautyfull, like it just came out of the Eickhorn factory.
    Seller seems very serious and trustworthy.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Oleg...in your knowledge..does the light give the impression that there is total loss of the gilt that comes on these Naval daggers?

    Hello, Larry.
    The condition of gilding of navy daggers is also interesting for me: on some daggers we see fully preserved gilding, on others the gilding completely disappeared. In my opinion, the reason is in different conditions of storing of the daggers and, possibly, in different qualities of gilding by different manufacturers.
    Best,
    Oleg.

    I have the feeling that this dagger is way better than the pictures show. I would not be surprised to find out that daylight pictures will show that this piece is mint. Hopefully we get to see them.

    I think with the preservation of gilt the main reason comes down to how much handling the dagger has had over the last 75 years. Greasy sweaty hands coat objects touched with a corrosive cocktail that will dull gilt and wear it away over time. To preserve gilt, don't touch it, or clean after touching. Also keep dust from gathering on it. That's one of the reasons in museums the staff wear white gloves when handling artifacts. In this case it appears to be a totally unused dagger, perhaps shop stock never sold and kept wrapped up in a box for decades.
    The new owner hopefully will bear this in mind and limit his handling of the dagger, or at least carefully clean it after handling, so this incredible finish is preserved for another generation to see.
