Nice Police officer degen / sword with the lobster maker logo of Peter Dan Krebs. The blade is an extremely crisp and clean matte finish example fitting quite snugly into the handle. The lower hilt has the double lightning bolt SS proof, reflective of the fuzzy difference between the leadership, duties and even personnel of the police and SS organizations. The grip has a very nice looking copper police eagle inset and nickel fittings with patina matching the rest of the handle and scabbard fittings. The grip wood correctly has a black finish which is rubbed through on the higher relief between the wire wrapping bands. This rubbing is smooth and the product of years of gentle use and not chipped or cracked; Just gently smoothed over. The scabbard has all the appropriate screws in both top and bottom fittings. The scabbard center tube has its original black paint with use wear more on the side that would rub the wearer's left leg. Sword in scabbard is 37.5 inches with blade length of 31.5 inches. Nice untouched example with a gently worn exterior housing an extremely clean blade. Great chance to own an honest example for a low price.
