Exceptional 1930s Chinese Nationalist Kuomintang Presentation Dirk, Twist-core Damascus blade

Exceptional 1930s Chinese Nationalist Kuomintang Presentation Dirk, Twist-core Damascus blade

( ID: cd1279 )

An exceptionally rare 1930s Chinese Nationalist dirk made with a twist-core damascus blade.  This is the second such dagger we have had in our collection, see here for another sold in 2014, when our thinking was that it was an Inspector General's dagger due to the sheaves of wheat along the crossguard. However, since then our research indicates that due to the style of the lion along the spine and pommel which is close in form and type to that found on Nationalist General's Lion swords, coupled with the twistcore blade (of similar form found on the example sold by us in 2014)...
