A rare item to see outside of Germany - this is a very old German hunting dagger. I estimate from the pre or interwar period.
This style of dagger would have been used in the field to apply the final blow by hunters to small game.
The handle is somewhat worn, and clearly has seen its fair share of action.
The blade is firmly attached to the antler hilt, thought the metal bolster is a tiny bit wobbly. But considering this was handmade, it is likely this flaw was present at creation.
Handle 3.5 inches long, blade 3 inches long and razor sharp.
