It looks like a very nice dagger - one of the nicer ones
condition-wise. These days, mediocre and messed
with pieces seem to be way overpriced anyhow.
If the price was right, I'd be happy
I've seen these misfit grips on the Model 33's before, but I still don't particularly Like them. To me, they were probably the end of the day production pieces or the day the supervisor took a long lunch at the beer hall. They are Original and Authentic, but that doesn't make them any prettier. Personally, I would prefer a perfect fit grip that doesn't tower over the guards. The piece originally posted is a fine Emil Voos in great over all condition. I can see nothing amiss with this particular one.

thanks for showing your Voos dagger, the Gents said it all i guess.
Nice looking one with a grip that doesnt has a perfect fit, but its seen a lot on SS daggers, early and late one.
Although some makers made perfect ones...
We see a way better fit on the SA daggers, but the ratio was 1 to 10? so they had a lot more practice i guess
The fact that SA daggers grips are made of way softer sorts of Wood, will also be a main reason for better fitted grips, easier to work with then dyed hardwood or ebony.
