German Dagger (SW1155)

German imperial officer’s sawback dress dagger or short sword. Manufactured by Luke (mark on ricasso with logo). Blade is 20” long and sword is 25” overall. Blade is floral etched on both sides and shows a panoply of swords, drums, spears, helmets, and canons! Hilt parts and scabbard parts are gilted and retain 93-95% finish. Leather has minor scuffs but stitching excellent and the scabbard is in over all very good sound condition. Blade is very good with some minor pits near point and minor pits on the Riccaso. The etching is excellent. The wooden grip is excellent and in ebony. We have not seen one of these like this before. We are leaning toward this being a special dress sword for Pioneer (engineer) because of the military motif etching. Possibly a dress sword for an Engineer. Anyone who actually knows what this is please let us know!
