    Navy officer dress dagger with leather sheath, maker marked "ZIK", dated 1974.

    Navy officer dress dagger with leather sheath, maker marked "ZIK", dated 1974.

    Features Cyrillic maker mark "ZIK" on the blade above the date and gold warmish on the brass fittings. Very attractive Bakelite grip of relatively dark shade. The ricasso shows engraved serial number 24762. This is a very uncommon and interesting piece from the last series with the ZIK maker mark. During 1974, the maker mark was replaced with the Bulat mark which from that point forward appeared on all Soviet daggers. Any ZIK daggers from the 70s were issued in relatively small quantities and are quite scarce compared with the 1950's issues, but the ones from 1974 are particularly rare.

    In very good to excellent condition. The leather on the scabbard is nicely preserved showing just a few very minor scuffs, no significant wear, and still has beautiful gloss. Nearly all of the fragile varnish on the fittings and the grip is present showing only very minor wear on the handle guard and some nicks on the edge of the lower fitting - none of which are very noticeable or detractive. The brilliant blade shows practically no visible wear. One of its facets of the Bakelite grip is slightly less "tanned" apparently due to less exposure to light, which adds character. A very attractive piece overall.
