Stellar example of Luftwaffe (Air Force) sword by the firm SMF in Solingen. The blue leather scabbard has no dents or damage and the leather is in fantastic shape. The aluminum fittings and grip are nice and tight with no major damage or cleaning. The blade is also in a fantastic shape with light graying in areas, this also is uncleaned and without any major damage or sharpening. Near the hilt is the trademark of SMF Solingen, as well as the Luftwaffe inspection mark. There is also the addition of an Officers portepee knot wrapped around the grip. Just an overall amazing example that would be perfect for any serious collector!
