M 1881 Dragoon Enlisted Man's Shashka with attached bayonet, by the Zlatoust Factory, 1917 issue. In very good condition. Made in the year of the Revolution, this sword was a witness of many tragic events that followed and was possibly still used in combat in as late as WW2.
Navy officer dress dagger with leather sheath, early to mid-1950s. In very good condition, an attractive piece showing some wear but free of any major flaws.
Navy officer dress dagger with "Bulat" maker mark, dated 1989. An outstanding, obviously unissued example is in near mint condition. This is one of the last daggers produced during the Soviet era.
Army (Land Forces) officer dress dagger , dated 1957. This is one of the last Soviet Army ZIK daggers produced before production was discontinued during the following year. Extremely attractive piece with medium toned grip, in excellent condition.
Navy Admiral or Officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, circa 1947-1948 issue. Very impressive early piece in gold brocade with black liner. Comes complete with dagger hangers, gilded hardware and belt loops. In very good to excellent condition.
Navy dress belt with dagger hangers for a uniform of a Captain, 1st Class, 1960s- 80s. In gold brocade, of the same quality but narrower than an Admiral's belt, this type was allowed only for Captains 1st cl. (equiv. of Full Colonel in the Army) whereas lower ranking naval officers used belts in softer gold cloth. In excellent condition.
M 1940 Waist Belt with Hangers for Navy Officer Dagger, 1940- 1947. Early, narrower pattern, featuring so-called "kind lions" on the buckles and without the larger round buckle up front. In excellent condition. Fits up to a 42" waist. This rare and desirable WW2 model is a perfect accompaniment for a wartime-dated or a very early post-war Soviet dagger.
M 1947 Waist Belt with Hangers for Navy Officer Dagger, 1947-1955. This early post-war example with "angry lions" can be a superb addition to a late 1940s - early 50s naval dagger. In very good condition.

M1945 Army General's Belt in gold bullion brocade for wear with the dress uniform, complete with dagger hangers, dated 1947.

Leather knot for a general dress sword, circa 1960s-70s. In near mint condition.
