MATCHED SET OF KREIGSMARINE DAGGER HANGERS.This is another decent set of navy hangers I acquired recently. Navy hangers continue to be very difficult to source, so I buy them whenever I can. this is another matched set. The gilded aluminium buckles and clips all match. The casting marks on the reverse of the buckles are the same, so the lions head fronts are the same!! No particular wear to the moire fronts or the velvet backings, however you can see these HAVE been worn with a dagger and have seen proper use etc. The shorter strap has the retaining chin attached, but the small hook that goes with it is missing. Something that can be found on various accessory sites and Ebay, I imagine. Even a reproduction one would work. A nice set, priced very competitively. Be good to add to a similar conditioned dagger.

LOVELY USED SET OF THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGERS HANGERS.This set is complete and has been used to carry a dagger quite a lot, so is not one of the used 'mint' sets I have had in the past. Both straps are matching, the gilt plated grey alloy buckles have the same casting marks at the back etc. All the snap clips work properly and the top one on the shorter hanger has the retaining chain and hook. The longer strap is in virtually mint condition as it does not carry the weight of the dagger. The smaller one shows a bit more wear, as this one took the whole weight of the dagger when carried. The dark blue moire fronts are fine, there is a little wear to the long one just inside the buckle. Hardly noticeable. The blue velvet backs are in good condition, with a little more use on the shorter strap. A very good set to go on a 'as worn' dagger.

THIRD REICH FIRE OFFICERS PARADE SWORD - EICKHORN -WITH KNOT.As pictured and listed in the Eickhorn catalogue, this is the plain gilt hilted parade sword carried by Fire Officers. It has a plain, rounded dove-head hilt, with no engraving. Completely smooth. No political or military affiliation so no swastika on the piece at all. The hilt is gilded aluminium, but the gilt has dulled down to a brass like finish. Black celluloid grip with thin twisted grip wires. There is an original to the piece, Fire sword portepee. If you peek under the knot at the hilt, you can see the protected surface and rub marks. Scabbrd is black painted steel. The blade on this piece is marked with the post 1938 Eickhorn squirrel. Blade has a steel finish reather than a nickel plated on and is quite dull in places, but would certainly polish up. No damage or pitting though. If you have a Fire bayonet, dagger collection, they certainly wore this sword too!

LIONS HEAD PARADE SWORD-'BLUCHER' BY EICKHORN.This is one of the more unusual and difficult to get patterns of the Field Marshal series of swords made by Eickhorn. They offered a 'run' of Officers parade swords all named after different, famous German Field Marshals. The is the 'BLUCHER' named after Gebhard Leberecht von Blücher 1742-1819. The sword is about 38" overall with a 322 blade. The lions head hilt is solid brass then gilded, and the lion has red glass eyes. The crossguard has an outstretched eagle and swastika. Under the crossguard is stamped the letter DRP, for Deutche Reich Patent. Black celluloid grip is wrapped with triple brass wires. Blade is nickel plated and in mint condition. It is stamped with the post 1938 Eickhorn squirrel trademark. A nice looking sword and a good addition to the Eickhorn sword series.

To complete your dagger with a set of these and a nice knot, brings it back to how it was worn. These are a lovely set of gilded aluminium navy dagger hangers.

REALLY EXCELLENT EARLY '33 SS DAGGER BY KLAAS, NUMBERED, WITH VERTICAL HANGER.I can't say enough about this really nice dagger. Purchased from a contact in the West of England last week, it's everything you want from an early 1933 SS man's/officers dagger. Untouched and uncleaned, seems to have never been apart. All sold nickel fittings with a nice dull yellow patina. Solid black ebony grip with nickel grip eagle. One tiny sliver of wood missing from just next to the SS button, but otherwise perfect. SS button has no chips or damage and perfectly fitted. Lower crossguard is marked on the reverse with a Roman district number I. The crossguard is also stamped underneath with the original owners SS number '45562'. I have not attempted any research yet. Scabbard is in great shape and has ALL of the original black anodised/blued finish present. There is some original lacquer present, but just under the hanger and at the edges of the scabbard. Fitted to the scabbard is the ORIGINAL SS black leather vertical hanger. It's always been on here and has moulded to the contours of the scabbard etc. I gently took it off and there is a picture of it. It's SS marked on the inside RZM and SS in circles plus 1/34 (M1/34 Karl Wurster, Markneukirchen). This is a fabulous frog. SS marked is worth £400 on it's own!! The dagger has a beautifully clean blade by Robt Klaas. It's MIRROR bright and 98% mint, with the usual in/out surface scratches and the off small blemish, the motto is deep and crisp and has the background burnishing. A super blade here. Overall, a wonderful, classic 1933 SS dagger in great condition.
MINIATURE LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY SMF WITH ADVERT.As many of you know I have also collected miniature daggers for many years, most enjoyable! The miniature Luftwaffe 2nd Pattn. dagger made by SMF is one of my favourites. Miniatures were made either as 'salesman's samples' or as advertising 'giveaways' as letter openers etc. A good marketing gimmick popular at the time. This is one of those. Dagger is normal in every other respect. Nice airplane grey fittings, orange celluloid grip with tiny grip wire. Grey scabbard with both hanging rings present. Blade is nicely nickel plated and on the reverse has the tiny stamped SMF seated king logo and DRGM. The obverse of the blade has a lovely etched advert/trade mark ' Striwa Lichenfels ' (Lichtenfels is a town in the Upper Franconian region of Bavaria, Germany). STRIWA were a garment/jacket manufacturer during the war, made long leather greatcoats for the Gestapo too! They are not in business any longer. A great little miniature, in super condition, and well worthy of a place in your collection.
ORIGINAL KRIEGSFLAG, BATTLE FLOWN-NICE SIZE.These Kriegsflags are always so popular, they are the core of a collection, and ideal to line a drawer or put underneath a dagger display. They were one of the most sought after souvenirs during the war. This one has a little damage to the flying end, but nothing major. It is a nice size 100 x 170 and is marked as such along the hem. It's also marked with the maker in Oberkotzau which is a municipality in Upper Franconia in the district of Hof in Bavaria, Germany. It's been stored away from the light, so all the colours are bright and brilliant. There is no staining or leeching from damp. It's made of a high quality cotton linen, rather than the rough sack cloth some are made of. The hem is complete as is the integral rope, which is stitched securely in place. There are a couple of holes in the lower edge, both about 3cm across. A great looking flag indeed.

BEAUTIFUL NAVY DAGGER WITH ORANGE GRIP, SAILING SHIP BLADE AND KNOT!I have always liked WKC navy daggers, and THIS example is one I am asked for over and over again. WKC made a very good navy dagger indeed. Some of their grips were celluloid over wood and some were solid celluloid. The solid ones seem to age well and turn this great orange colour, which gives the dagger a unique look. The dagger has all brass fittings, with a vast amount of the original gilt still remaining. The pommel is unique to WKC, with the slightly extended swastika legs. The crossguard has a lot of gilt left and the release button works a treat! The deep orange grip is wrapped with a single twisted brass wire. Wrapped around the grip, pommel and crossguard is the original rayon 42cm knot. It has aged with the dagger and turned a nice 'gold' colour. There is a little fraying to the cord where it comes through the last part of the knot. The scabbard is dent and damage free, and retains nearly 100% of the original gilt. The blade on this example is the 'sailing ship etch'. Showing a fully rigged 3 mast ship etched into the blade along with anchors and scrolls. WKC did the standard etched blade too, but this 'sailing ship' type is much rarer. Etch and blade are in perfect condition, and have a covering of protective oil/grease. The WKC logo of a Knights head is deeply stamped into the riccasso. A classic and great looking dagger. Excellent addition to a navy collection, and VERY hard to find with an undamaged ORANGE grip.
MINIATURE LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY HORSTER.This is actually quite a difficult dagger to acquire and own. EF Horster were the second most prolific miniature dagger maker during the Third Reich period. This is typical of their size, about 7.5" overall. Thy made a similar army dagger miniature, a 1st Luftwaffe dagger and some swords too. The detail on these miniatures is absolutely superb. Tiny pommel and crossguard, EXACTLY like the large counterpart. Orange celluloid grip, with tiny twisted wire wrap. In perfect proportion. The scabbard is cast in grey metal and again is identical to the full sized version. The blade is nickel plated, has a needle sharp point and the EF HORSTER name is deeply etched along the blade. Great looking piece and ideal to go with other miniatures or beside a full sized piece.
