Political Dagger Blade Tang Mark Identification Guide

This is an identification guide for the internal blade tang marks for Political Daggers. Tang marks were formed during the bladeforging process by the billet clamp. To the best of our knowledge, all the examples shown are original pre-1945 manufacture. If anyone has questions or suggestions, please contact Vern@GermanDaggers.com.
