German Imperial Presentation Fireman’s Dagger-Some also reference this as being a short sword as it measures approx. 25 ½” in length. This is a beautiful presentation example and a sight to behold. The solid brass hilt is heavily adorned with the pommel cap being an imperial fireman and the cross guard having a very deeply engraved fireman’s motif. The black celluloid handle along with the double wire grip wrap is intact and considering the age is in excellent condition. The black leather scabbard with solid brass fittings is also in excellent condition. The obverse of the upper scabbard fitting is heavily engraved with the following “1886-1906”. The figurative translation that this was presented to Cpt. Hilm Kernaten for his devoted service. The red felt buffer is missing a small portion but is in otherwise excellent shape and is present under the crossguard. The double engraved blade has the fire motif. There is some minor plating loss but overall, the blade is in near excellent condition. A choice early offering!
