photo-3.JPGThis complete example was done by Robert Klaas from 1938. I had the scabbard re-done to look like new. The blade is straight, no nicks, with light sharpening and runner marks. But the most striking part of this piece is the way the motto,'Blut und Ehre!', 'blood and honor!'. is deeply etched which is seldom seen, and retains most of its black background.
