Original Hlinka Guard dagger.  Exterior features heavy brass fittings, a perfect factory wooden handle, a perfect scabbard with 99% original paint, and a rare original factory hanger.  The cross guard is marked "HG" for Hlinka Guard.  Factory polished double edge blade is perfect.  The Hlinka Guard was the militia maintained by the Slovak People's Party in the period from 1938 to 1945.  It was named after Andrej Hlinka.  The unit was known for its participation in the Holocaust in Slovakia; its members appropriated Jewish property and rounded up Jews for deportation in 1942.
