This is one of the last Soviet Army daggers ever produced. The 1958 change in uniform regulations made further production of army daggers largely unnecessary: from that point on, Soviet Army (and Air Force) officers would wear a dagger only for special occasions and as a rule, wouldn't permanently own one. Complete with a scabbard and a set of vintage hangers.
