The dagger blade bears the manufacturer mark of the firm of David Malsch. The nickel plated blade has some spots and gray smudges, but overall the blade is bright. The pommel displays the sunwheel swastika on each side. The leather covered grip shows wear and scuffs. The grip remains wrapped in triple wire. The crossguard and scabbard fittings are nickel silver the carrying chain is aluminum. The scabbard is covered in leather and while it has a number of small scuffs and chips, it remains intact and presentable. There is a shallow dent in the leather on the lower section of one side of the scabbard.
