This is one of the longest swords i have ever seen. It is an early Dachau model in stainless with an officer SS knot attached in original tie. The hilt is perfect condition and the blade is stunning. Has an interesting floral motif engraved on both sides and the initials “LS” on the ricasso. The blade is straight and the burnishing is perfect. The scabbard has normal wear and a bit of a slight dog leg about 12 inches from the bottom. Very hard to find these style swords engraved like this.
