Hi Matt,,this is a rare RZM type by Ed Wustoff. This dagger is in great condition for being near late period. The scabbard looks to be Anodized due to the crazing on the surface...or is it painted? hard to tell in the photo but a Good dagger. Nice pick up!!

It does appear to be painted over an anodized finish.
Well done Matt, she's lovely

Great dagger indeed.
Is it realy paint over the anodized scabbard, or just the lacquer finish that shows wear?
btw a pity you dont ship to Europe anymore
I realy love the Herder SA you once sold me........
Good find Matt, very nice
