Some manufacturers plated blades however they are more frequently encountered with a horizontal “Cross Grain” Finnish. Etched presentation blades as well as Damascus steel examples are not unknown however such exotica should be viewed with caution by todays collectors.
Army Dagger Scabbards
The first 1935 Army dagger’s had heavy silver plating applied to the”pebble” decorated brass scabbard shells .From 1936 scabbards were produced in steel some with a nickle finish and late issues with the gray oxide finish.Fitted to the scabbard were two hanger suspension rings with oak leaf patterns onto which the hanging straps was clipped.
Hanging Straps & Knot
Army Daggers were worn suspended on two hanger straps, united by a belt clip at the top. The silver braid faced straps were backed with field grey velvet . Oval buckles with oak leaf patterns and matching silvered slides.
A Silver 42-43 cm Knot or Portapee was worn tied around the dagger grip .
Army dagger production had ceased by mid 1943.
