Rare Italian Poignard Dagger- Very difficult piece to encounter in any condition. This is a sound example, but far from mint. The nickel plated fittings on the hilt retain 50% of their finish. The inlayed Fascist bundles located both on the obverse and reverse of the black wooden handle are intact. The steel cross guard has the MVSN (Milizia Volontaria per la Sicurezza Nazionale) deeply etched into the center. The reverse of the cross guard is marked F 316. This piece is totally untouched and uncleaned and as such, there is considerable light rust spotting to the steel scabbard. I believe some of this will clean up but I am not going to touch it. The back of the scabbard has a long thin steel belt loop. The four edged blade is made of steel. The cutting edges have slight nicks, but overall the condition of the blade is quire sound. Very good example of a rare Italian edged weapon.
