    Fake sorry ............Scabbard should be alloy metal, handle very rarely ivory, usually celliod plastic......oh too much to list, and...........

    Germans have this whimsical way of spelling their country....they spell it Deutschland

    This is a fairly early parts repro made in Germany as souvenirs for Allied troops. The same company also produced SA daggers.

    The grip is horrid. However I believe they were sometimes, though rarely made from galalith (Milk) which was unstable but cheap to mould.
    Could this be one of those handles.
    You could try the hot needle test on an inconspicuous area?
