DLV Dagger Flyers Knife by Paul Weyersberg

SOLD!

These DLV Flyers Knives are becoming harder and harder to come by, and even more so with the original blue leather still in tact. We have here a DLV dagger from maker Paul Weyersberg Solingen. The grip has 100% of the original leather wrap still securely in place, with a few nicks from use, but no splits along the seam like we usually see with these.

These DLV Flyers Knives are becoming harder and harder to come by, and even more so with the original blue leather still in tact.

We have here a DLV dagger from maker Paul Weyersberg Solingen. The grip has 100% of the original leather wrap still securely in place, with a few nicks from use, but no splits along the seam like we usually see with these. The nickel silver guard and pommel have a very nice age patina and no signs of tampering or removal. In fact, there is visible green verdigris showing between the fittings. While the black enamel of the Swastikas are still complete, there appears to be some scuffs across both, more visible under magnification than to the naked eye. On the guard we see the original leather scabbard buffer pad, and the letter “K” stamped into the outer tip of one of the wings.

The blade condition is very typical for these DLV daggers. We see on both sides of this blade what appears to be some steel wool marks lengthwise. Why we see this treatment so often on these daggers is a mystery. On the blade’s reverse is the Paul Weyersberg & Co. Solingen maker’s mark still in tact and very visible.

Like the grip, the scabbard’s leather condition has survived time remarkably well. Time is almost never good to this leather, but in this case time lost that battle. Aside from a small section along one side of the scabbard where the leather did crack and peel away, the remaining leather is in remarkable condition. Total leather coverage on the scabbard is approximately 95%. The patina tone of the fittings match the grip fittings completely, which we like to see. The only notable damage to the scabbard is a small thin impact dent between the scabbard body and the lower tip fitting. The leather scabbard hanger is still present on this one as well, which is also something we don’t see all too often. Typically these leather hangers (like the leather wrapped scabbard and grip) dry out and break off over time.
