RARE WW2 ITALIAN FACIST DRESS DAGGER WITH ORIGINAL SHEATH A VERY RARE AND INTERESTING DAGGER
Nice original condition
This was originally a Mannlicher Carcano Model 1938 Italian Bayonet.The original grips have been re gripped with black Ebony wood grips. To the grips on the outer side has been added a brass Italian Royal Crown that is found on most WW2 Italian Military Badges All the metal work on the bayonet has been plated.The steel scabbard has been coated with a black enamel finish apart from the throat plate section at the top which has been decorated with a plated finish.Overall rather an attractive item. Its obviously been skilfully and converted from a Mannlicher Carcano Model 1938 Italian Bayonet to a dress dagger, given the colours for an Italian Facist Blackshirt Unit. This is a totally original item that was purchased with a collection of bayonets and military knives.
We did show this to a bayonet collector of some considerable experience and he said that he had never come on a bayonet like this one before, Another reason we think this worn as a dress dagger,
Not been able to find out anything about this dagger as yet, If anyone has any info would appreciate an email before we sell it.
Dagger dagger blade length about 17.7 cm, dagger overall length about 29 cm
As a collector I like to treat people as I would like to be treated,if you are not entirely satisfied with a purchase you can return the item for a refund, but we do not refund postage.Thanks.
