Featuring a double-edged blade with steel cross guard and wooden grip secured by two steel rivets and steel pommel. This dagger is comes complete in an all steel belt scabbard with angled belt loop. The scabbard front is embossed with the Fascist logo of the famous bound axe and rods over M.V.S.N., which stood for "Milizia Volontara par la Sicurezza Nazionale" known to the rest of the world as the Blackshirts.
This “second pattern” MVSN dagger, unlike the first pattern, was completely and originally manufactured to the designs of the then new Fascist Party specification, and it was intended to serve both as a dress dagger and as a useful combat knife. A good many examples were carried by conscripted members during the Second World War and later became war trophies. This is a historically significant dagger, replicated with great care and exactingly quality.
Approximate Blade Length: 8.5”
Approximate Overall Length: 13”
Note: This is a very unique design and even though it appears that the blade is on backwards it is not. Please see page 76 of the fabulous book: "Fighting Knives" by Fredrick J. Stephens
