K004679 OFFICER'S DAGGER PORTEPEE.
BACKGROUND:The Kriegsmarine was the last of the three branches of the German Armed Forces to adopt a Nazified dagger on January 28TH 1938. The Kriegsmarine dagger was a modified version of a traditional design that dates back to the creation of the Prussian Navy in 1848. The main modification of the Third Reich era dagger was a change in the Reichsmarine flame shaped pommel to one featuring the national eagle with swastika. Originally designed as a functional item to secure the blade sidearm to the holders wrist the portepee evolved into a purely decorative accessory and was to be worn with all Kriegsmarine Officers daggers.
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: Silver/aluminum braid portepee with stem, slide, crown and ball all intact. Well worn and used example.
