Super Mint RZM M7/36 by E. & F. Hörster, just an opened Timecapsule
This is a late war RZM but its in Super condition.
The overall fit is great, no big gaps, no chrome lifting.
A scabbard thats straight no dents, all paint is there, and an virgin ball at the top.
The insignia are perfectly inlayed, and now we come to the screamer: the Blade!
Its a full 100% cross grain blade, with perfect dark grey burnish, the grain realy pops of the blade.
Normally i search for the early ones, but having a RZM in the condition is just Super.
Enjoy this lovely dagger.

Nice stuff Gerrit. Im pretty much the same by going for the earlier stuff but this looks unissued and definitely worthwhile having.
You're spot on with this one, Ger! No runner marks, paint chips-no nothing. It doesn't matter all that much if it is a late war when it's in This kind of shape. Look at the shine on that grip eagle! This one didn't bang around on some Brown Shirt's belt for years! Beautiful find!

Thats a time machine job that one!
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

Throw it in the trash...its missing the little brown leather hold down retaining loop found on the hanger................Other than that...Minty Mint!!
The wood is perfect..and the type I like seeing on these late examples...and has perfect contour ridges. The runes button is perfectly inlayed. A beauty from head to toe...or tang nut to tip.
Was this from that widow you and I talked about before Regards Larry
