Thank you very much Uwe for your answer.

Do you have a picture of such a dagger? For me, it is completely unknown what kind of dagger it could be.

I suspect it might be something like this Reichswehr-Schutzen-Jaeger Rgt. presentation dagger.

Hi,

a "Degen" is not a dagger, it is called Épée (or "small sword").

These weapons, as examples, are "Degen":

An 'honor' epee seems a strange award for a Freikorps fighter. So, he most likely was in the regular army as the Reichswehr was heavily involved in border defense.

Maybe this helps:
The soldier served in the Reserve Infantry Regiment 211, which in the file was also called the Volunteer Regiment "Fischer". So obviously a regular regiment, which fought within the Freikorps.
