Here’s a nice, honest, early Land Customs Dagger from a hard to find maker, Paul Weyersberg.
The deep blue/green leather grip is exquisite, showing only a few nicks to the leather, and a nice tight, heavily tarnished silver wire wrap. The grip fittings have some areas of the original silvering remaining, but much has been lost to time. The eagle and pommel cap detail is still sharp and prominent, with very little use wear.
Moving down the dagger we see a clean, mirror-like blade that can only be described as amazingly preserved since “mint” doesn’t even do this one justice! The “Paul Weyersberg & Co Solingen” maker’s mark on the reverse is 100%, with a nice, crisp etch, and a gorgeous deep gray tone.
The scabbard on this one has quite a few nicks and dings in the leather wrap, but nothing that could not be repaired by a skilled leather smith. The silver fittings have the same deep tarnish as the silver wire on the grip. Personally, I prefer a dagger that shows it’s age, and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint in that arena. This early type scabbard is a nice variant to the ones we typically see with these Land Customs daggers, in that the trip embossing encircles the entire fitting, not just the front side as is the case with many examples. A nice bonus indeed! This one also has the more discrete hanger ring band loops (we usually see these more pronounced).
Overall, this is a nice untouched Land Customs dagger that has never been cleaned, and never in a collection.
