Beautiful double etched blade is pictured in Wittmans SS book page 394. The inscription on this piece is done in panel form and is the same as the ss honor swords minus the name and date. Beautiful burnishing behind both inscriptions and great detail to the SS runes and swazs that adorn the dedication left and right of the SS motto. And the personalization by Himmer on the other side. It is a Dachau period piece as it has the ”PND” initial stamped on the reverse. The upper hilt is extremely nice and the scabbard has only minimal paint wear but is original. As with all Dachau pieces as all parts are stainless steel.
