Hilt of dirk
Dirk, the hilt of the dirk consists of straight gilt crosspiece with a fluted knob at each end. The crosspiece is engraved with floral decoration and in the centre of the reverse of the crosspiece with a foul anchor motif. An eagle with wings semi-displayed executed in gilt acts as the pommel. The eagle clutches an oak wreath, which encloses a swastika and its head is turned to look across its right shoulder. A silver braid dirk knot is elaborately tied from the pommel to the guard. The amber-coloured bone grip is spirally bound with gilt wire.
