    I am no expert, but comparing the dagger to a good one I have been checking at Emedals it look to be a good one, not sure about the hanger though, wait and see what the real experts have got to say about it, Best Regards, Juan

    Ronnie, I think that by now most collectors have accepted the evidence (or a lack of) that the so-called black gripped "Funeral" Luftwaffe daggers are a collectors myth created to jack up prices. Instead being an originally white painted grip over black Bakelite (as manufactured) by Klaas with the paint now removed. That said, there are some guys who might like a black grip as a novelty, so like with many things it's a matter of personal preference (but not so much for the purists who don't like daggers that have been fooled around with). Best Regards, Fred

    I always wondered why they would have made a special dagger with black grip for a funeral ?

    It wasnt made for funerals Scott, just gained this name from collectors because of the black grip

    So its a made up term by a dealer long time ago, We will call it a Funeral dagger & add an extra $1000 to the price tag ?

    Hi guys, just for the sake of learning, why is that on Emedals they specifically sold a Klass dagger as a funeral and particularly not at a cheap Price?
