A Police Officerâ€™s Degen by Peter Dan Krebs complete with the original black painted scabbard.
The hilt with P guard and crossguard are in very good condition, the pommel with the umbrella type finish and smooth top.
The ebony grip is free from splits or other damage and bound with silver nickel rings with the copper coloured Police eagle which fits snugly in place between the rings, the ferrule with a nickel plated splay of vertical oakleaves.
Moving to the blade, the ricasso shows the trade mark of Peter Dan Krebs, the blade full length, bright and without damage. The leather washer (buffer) is I believe a replacement.
The scabbard retains a good 95% of the original black painted finish, the throat with decorative Wotan weave, the chape with nickel fitting. All four screws are in place.
The scabbard represents the only real issue to this lovely Degen showing a noticeable dent so typical of damage sustained by a closing door.
A very nice original piece which displays well.
