That is a real early beauty with a great grip.
Gau Pommern marking on the back of the crossguard.
its Sa rune has a little wear but besides that its in a wonderful condition.
Its has a nice dull patina on the nickel fittings, and its blade looks good too.
Does it have its original cross grain? its hard to see on these pics.
I love the fully anodised scabbard, no dents, no crushed ball, excellent.
Its a rare maker you got here.
Below the R.Siegert listing of the maker.
Hi Len..welcome to the forum..I seen this dagger on the GDC and I thank you for sharing it with us here. Nice original early period producer..as I commented there although the producer is a rare maker..the Gruppe mark "P" for Pomerania is rare especially along with it being upside down on the lower crossguard. First I seen of an upside down "P".
Tight Crossguard to grip fit..no gaps...Nice!!...and as Gerrit pointed a beautiful grip..with which appears to have a Nice Cherrywood stain to it.
The oils in the human hands also played a role in coloration of certain woods..that added to its color. Thanks for sharing. Regards Larry
