Japanese WW2 Naval Officer’s Dress Dirk Dagger

japanese-naval-dirk-3

free-shipping-1

An original and fine example of a Japanese WW2 Naval Officer's Dress Dirk Dagger.  This is a relatively scarce WW2 naval officer's dirk and few turn up that are complete as with this piece.  I believe this to be a late-war example as the materials used are not of the same kind of quality that were encountered in pre-war and early  war naval dirks.  The materials used in earlier dirks were later needed for the war effort.

Complete with scabbard

The dirk comprises a moulded composite "fishskin" grip bound with copper or brass twistwire and gilded brass hilt mounts.  The blade is plain and the dirk comes complete with a wooden lacquered scabbard with brass mounts.  Overall condition of the dirk is very good.  Blade length is 8.25 inches (13 inches overall).
