A REALLY BEAUTIFUL ARMY DAGGER WITH TONED FITTINGS, KNOT AND HANGERS.Sometimes you see a dagger in amongst many others and it just shouts out at you. This did it for me. It looked fantastic, untouched, uncleaned, with great patina and all the original accessories. Firstly dagger has a lovely orange/yellow celluloid grip in perfect condition. Looking at the fittings, they are high quality, heavily plated but have a high silver content so have toned down to a charcoal grey finish- beautiful! The origina bullion 42cm knot has been tied on this dagger for 70 years, it's also toned with age and patina and in fact looks GOLD (although it isn't). There is no damage to the knot ans it's tied perfectly and has not moved or been removed. Scabbard is perfect and dent free, again has toned to the same colour as all the other metal parts. Under the crossguard it's lighter where it's been protected. There are a super set of hangers with this dagger and have leather strengthening tabs to the tops. NICE hangers, no wear to the revers and great bullion fronts. To top all this the blade is STONE MINT, has 100% crossgraining AND has the rarely found 'half-sized' Eickhorn trademark stamped into the blade!!! This is a rare small Eickhorn type of trademark and is seldom found. Was used around 1940 it seems. A classic army dagger in every way, and I guarantee whoever buys it will love it!!
LONG 'PIONEER' EARLY DRESS BAYONET BY EICKHORN WITH FROG.I honestly cannot remember getting so excited in buying a 'Pioneer' type dress bayonet!! To find a real, untouched one now is SO difficult. Ordinary dress bayonets, bith short and long, are still very common. I think I have 5 or 6 in stock, but to find a REAL Pioneer type and by Eickhorn too, was a great find. They are referred as 'Pioneer' dress bayonets as thy lack the upturned quillion on the crossguard. It appears in the Eickhorn catalogue. Bayonet has nice nickel finish to the metal hilt etc. Bakelite grips are perfect. Scabbard is dent free and has 85% of the original paint finish. Blade is lovely with ALL nickel plated finish. Deeply stamped into the reverse of the blade is the earlier EICKHORN trademark which seems to have been used from 1933-1935. The bayonet has the original patent leather frog in excellent condition, still has the grey wool/felt backing to it. (frog is worth £50, on it's own!)
SS OR POLICE BULLION SWORD OR BAYONET KNOT.This is the more common of these knots that you find. It has a black top to the acorn ball with alternating black/silver threads underneath. I have seen these on original SS dagens and also police swords. Have also seen them on original bayonets too. Great quality, but not as heavyweight as the early SS bullion knots. In overall excellent condition. Seems to have been on a weapon of some type. Great looking knot. I think the ones with black tops are for NCO's and the plain silver tops are for officers, but that's just my opinion!

UNUSUAL SS OR POLICE SWORD/BAYONET KNOT.These knots are original, WW2 period, but I think I am safe to say, they have not been 100% identified. They follow the pattern of the SS sword knots, and that's what I believe they are for, either the SS dagen or the Police dagen with affiliation to the police. This type is slightly different to the ones you usually find as the top of the acorn 'ball' is silver bullion wire and not black. Below it has alternating black/silver bullion threads. The strap is flat silver bullion wire with twin black lines running through. A really nice looking knot and would really suit a sword or special dress bayonet.
EARLY HJ KNIFE WITH MOTTO BY BOKER.This is a good USED example, but that's exactly what they are supposed to be...used! Dagger is an early heavy steel based item, nickel plated. Grips are fine and there is a nice HJ diamond that is not chipped. Scabbard has had a re-paint some time ago, but looks fine, and the retaining top grip snap loop has been re-fixed, but works well. Blade is the early type without riccasso. Reverse has the BOKER trademark and the company name deeply stamped into the blade. The obverse has the 'Blut und Ehre' erched into the blade quite deeply so is very clear. The blade edge has been sharpened at some time, but has not damaged the motto. Hj knives can fetch up to £500 in mint condition now. This is an honest, ORIGINAL, used, early example and is reasonably priced.

SET OF MINT THIRD REICH NAVY HANGERS-MATCHED SET.I would say these navy hangers are either never used or unissued. A really mint set of gilded aluminium navy hangers. If you have a mint dagger and need a lovely set, here they are! All fittings are gilded aluminium, with 100% of the gilt finish intact. The lion's head buckles have the same casting mark on the rear, two little dots. The only thing that shows any age are the steel eyelets in the fabric in the middle of the buckle, they have both gone slightly rusty. The moire fabric and velvet backings are beautiful. Could only upgrade these if you found a set in a packet!!!

MINT SET OF SOCIAL WELFARE DAGGER HANGING STRAPS-V.RARE!I hate to say that straps like these are very rare now, but they ARE! When was the last time you saw a beautiful set of hanging straps for the Social Welfare officers dagger available? Yes, there are a couple of sets for sale in the USA, but they are also priced at around $1000 a set!! I just cannot remember having a set like this on their own. Over the past year I have bought several Red Cross officers hangers, but not these. They are really beautiful, hardly been used and are still stiff. The silver bullion fronts have perfect silver, with no oxidation. The twin grey/blue accent lines are prefect. The fittings on these hangers are unique. Aluminium with a pebbled finish, buckles and the snap clip at the top. The slides are just plain and the lower snap clips are also plain with silver washed finish. The reverse of the straps are a mouse grey velvet and apart from a tiny rust stain, are in perfect condition with no wear at all. Best set of Social Welfare straps I have owned!

GOLD WITH RED/BLACK FLECKS IMPERIAL NAVAL GERMAN SWORD KNOT.This has been tied to a sword or perhaps dagger at some time, but considering this is now over 100 years old, it's in marvellous condition. This is the long bullion parade knot for the Imperial naval dress sword. They are sometime tied to the dagger too, but as the ball of this one is fairly large, I think it's been used on a sword. Whilst usually silver bullion, this one is definitely 'golden' in colour and looks amazing. The bullion cord is interspersed with red and black 'fleks' woven into the bullion cord. There is one very small wear point in the cord, where it's been swinging on a sword, but it's really nothing. If you have a nice Imperial German navy sword, that needs a cracking knot, this is it. A beautiful example and really hard to find on their own.
SILVER BULLION KNOT FOR THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER.I always look out for these as they are incredibly popular with collectors looking to complete their navy daggers. Whilst they look IDENTICAL to most 42cm army dagger knots etc., there is one slight difference. The bottom of the ball is finished inside in a strange manner, which Tom Wittmann describes as looking like a 'cat's anus' !!! Well, I suppose he's right, but it's just all 'puckered up' to me! Anyway, why navy daggers had this slightly different knot, I have NO IDEA. .....but if you look on 99.99% of navy daggers (and navy swords), who hae an untouched knot wrapped around them, they are ALL like this, with the puckered bottom in-fill. Navy knots are also always at least 42cm long, sometimes a bit longer. Although not obvious, the knot used on the navy sword is several cm's longer still. Not noticeable until you put to together. This is a great knot, seems to have been on a dagger, but no wear or damage. Very nice thick cord and would look and tie really well on a nice navy piece.
SILVER BULLION KNOT FOR THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER.Purchased from the same sourse as the other navy dagger knot, the same description applies. Nice condition, no wear, will look great on period navy dagger.
