SS NCO'S PARADE DAGEN, BY WKC.A nice looking sword this. Long and in excellent condition. This is the SS NCO's sword carried by all NCO's members of the SS for parade purposes. Not so quite 'in your face' as the officers version. The SS runes are cast into the pommel only. The black ebony ribbed grip is completely plain, with no wire or badge. The scabbard is the same as the officers apart from the bottom fitting which is an integral steel drag, and not a separate fitting. All fittings are nickel plated and are in wonderful condition, with no lifting etc to any of the hilt fittings. Scabbard has a full coat of black paint, with very little signs of wear. Blade is beautiful, I would say virtually mint, with a semi-matt finish to the surface. WKC trademark appears on the riccasso, and on the reverse, a set of SS runes stamped into the surface. A WKC trait. A very nice example of a SS NCO's parade sword.

NEVER OFFERED BEFORE SS/SD BLACK SWORD OR BAYONET KNOT.I have never been able to offer this type of SS knot before. It is one of the rarest available. Usually known as the 'SS NCO's sword or bayonet knot'. Knot consists of a silk/linen type long strap in black with twin WHITE/cream strips running it's length. The ball has a cream body with a black top. The stem of the knot is in cream with the SS runes in black in a black circle. This is repeated on the reverse side. The quality is amazing and the details are crystal clear. The SS runes are woven into the cream fabric 'bevo' style, and are separate from the circle. It has seen some wear, but is basically mint. These knots do appear on SS NCO's swords, but according to Tom Wittman's SS book, which contain period photos of this knot IN WEAR, they are worn by the SD and not the SS. There is a picture of them in use on page 169 of the book. Whatever it was actually used for, it is a MEGA rare dress knot. I doubt if I will ever offer another original one like this.
ULTRA RARE, SS OFFICERS BULLION SWORD KNOT.Perhaps the most difficult sword knot to find? This is in lovely condition, wide bullion strap with twin black lines running all through. Large bullion ball with flat weave bullion stem with the SS runes in black within a circle. The edges of the stem are hand stitched in tiny thread, and the quality of the SS runes each side is perfect, a sure sign of originality. These knots are always in high demand and SO difficult to find. Unfortunately the price of them has continued to rise, as collectors want them to complete their SS officers sword.
THIRD REICH / WEIMAR NAVAL OFFICERS DRESS SWORD + KNOT.I am really pleased to have found this naval officers sword. It seems to be one of the most difficult parade swords to find these days. This is a really nice example by ALCOSO and has the small, early trademark on the blade. These swords basically did not change from Imperial times, through the Weimar period and then into the Third Reich era. This one dates itself in two ways. It has a lovely Weimar period navy eagle stamped into the top scabbard fittings, but it also has a period Third Reich bullion knot, tied in place around the grip and hilt. So this was carried by a naval officer throughout his career in both naval periods. Super detail to the brass fittings, heavy brass lion's head with plain eyes. Nice cream celluloid grip with triple wire running around. A bullion Third Reich parade knot is tied in place. Scabbard is hard black leather and is in excellent condition, no bends or damage. Triple brass scabbard fittings are all fine and present. Blade is a navy 'piped back' type, is a nice plain nickel plates steel and is in perfect condition. The top scabbard fitting and folding hilt are stamped with a matching issue number.

THIRD REICH PARADE SWORD-HOLLER 42-PATTERN.I actually can't remember having this particular pattern made by the Holler company. It's designated as their 'type 42', and is an all brass lion's head sword. The hilt has quite an unusual appearance, as it has perhaps 80% of the original fire gilding and lacquer finish. Where it has flaked off or been exposed to the elements, the brass underneath has oxidised to nearly black! Effectively it is nearly a mint finish, with no damage etc. Lovely lion's head with two red glass eyes. Perfect celluloid grip which is wrapped with the trademark HOLLER 'springy wire'. (they used this exact wire on all of their daggers and swords). Crossguard has a closed wing eagle and swastika. Hilt is quite unusual as it has a little screw at the reverse rather than pins holding it in. Scabbard has its original black paint and is in excellent condition with no bends or dents. Blade is a lovely piece of steel with 100% of the nickel plating. The Holler trademark is visible underneath the reverse langet. Nice sword.

NEAR MINT EARLY BRASS LION'S HEAD THIRD REICH ARMY SWORD BY MwM. PERSONALISED!I really enjoy buying swords and they are great value for money. Pro-rata they are much cheaper to buy and collect than daggers, and there is a great variety. This is a very nice early all brass Infantry Officers parade sword. It's made by the unusual maker MwM Waffen. A very high quality sword, having solid brass fittings and two red glass eyes. Brass seems to still have most of the fire gilt finish and the grip is wrapped with the original green leather portepee. Superb detail to the lion's head and outstretched winged eagle and swastika cast into the crossguard. Reverse langet has been professionally engraved with the original owners initials. Looks to be 'A Sch'. Grip is perfect black celluloid with triple wrapped brass wire. Scabbard has 95% of the ORIGINAL black gloss paint, and has no bends or dents. Blade is a beautiful nickel plated piece of steel, and again has no damage or nicks to the edge. A really GOOD example of a parade sword.
NR.MINT ALUMINIUM LUFTWAFFE SWORD WITH FULL DOUBLE HANGER.This is a fantastic looking sword, and being aluminium, looks like it was made yesterday. All 4 swastikas on the large pommel and crossguard are beautiful, bright gilt and show no wear at all. The grip and scabbard leather have kept their original colour, there were a few age scuffs, but have been covered with matching leather polish and now look nearly invisible. The twin twisted aluminium springy wire wrapped around the grip is perfect. Scabbard is in matching condition, no dents or bends and the fittings are a bright brushed aluminium. Blade is STONE mint, is heavily nickel plated and has the makers mark of F.A.HELBIG lightly etched into the surface. Connected to the upper scabbard rings is the original crescent shaped leather hanger and aluminium box clip. ( the leather connected to the rings had become very weak and broken, so I have re-inforced it with near matching strips of leather). Attached to the box clip is the original later Luftwaffe sword hanger. These are selling for £200 on their own, but I have left this with the sword as it came. Hanger consists of a clip sandwiched between the leather covering to protect the sword and uniform and then a top box clip. This is a cracking looking sword, complete with all accessories.
FANTASTIC MINIATURE LUFTWAFFE DAGGER-SMF + ADVERT.As some of you may know, I have had a long association with collecting miniature Third Reich daggers. It's still one of the things I try and keep if it's lovely! The only reason I am not keeping this one, is I already have one identical in every way, condition, type etc. This is a lovely, mint example of the classic miniature Luftwaffe 2nd. Pattn dagger made by SMF. These daggers are all just over 9" long and reflect the BEST quality workmanship. If these are photographed with no scale reference, you would think they are full size. Perfect aluminium fittings that show no wear at all. Lovely scabbard which has 100% of the original blued finish. Tangerine orange grip is perfect with tiny silver wire running around the grooves. The blade is marked with the tiny SMF logo of the seated king and marked DRGM. The obverse has a wonderful etched 2 line advert for the ' Niedersashsische Tageszeitung- Hannover. This was a Third Reich newspaper started in 1932 (I think). This little dagger was given away (or sold) as an advertising gimmick and would have been used as a letter opener or similar. This is really one of the nicest SMF miniatures I have offered in a long while. Condition-wise it is faultless, and with the advert on the blade, quite a rare and historical thing.
HUNTING ASSOCIATION DOUBLE SIDED CAR PENNANT.Purchased with the dagger just listed, this is a lovely 100% original, double sided green cloth car pennant. Made of rough green cotton material, and complete with the small clip and attaching string. There is a machine embroidered Hunting Association stags head on each side, in multi coloured threads. There a re a few moth holes here and there to add to the authenticity, but none affect the DJ badges. It's quite small pennant, so will fit very nicely into a Hunting or Forestry collection and lay underneath a dagger or DJ badges.

THIRD REICH SUBORDINATE FORESTRY CUTLASS WITH EAGLE & SWAZ CAST IN FERRELL.Forestry and hunting cutlasses have been around in Germany for a very long time. Their association with the woods, animals and hunting goes back 100's of years. It is a proud tradition to carry a Hunting Cutlass and they come in my elaborate forms. With the advent of the Third Reich in the 1930's they readily absorbed these organisations into their midst. Goering, a keen hunter, made himself their Commander in Chief. Whilst they became part of the Third Reich, they hardly ever had any swastikas incorporated into their design. The Hunting cutlass has a very small silver badge on the grip, the Forestry Association cutlasses were by and large plain and devoid of the swastika. A few manufacturers made new designs and incorporated the eagle and swaz into the casting. This is one of the few makers who did. Luneschloss cast a small eagle into the Ferrell. As this is a subordinate cutlass, the grips are plain stag with 3 brass acorns each side. ( a senior cutlass would have ivory or cream celluloid grips) All brass fittings, make this quite a heavy and long dagger. Black leather scabbard is perfect and the two bras fittings are numbered and held to the leather by small brass screws. The blade is an absolute beauty on this dagger. Seems to have been kept in a light grease so is basically in mint condition. Hunting and animal scenes are deeply etched along each side. ADDED TO THIS, theyre is a beautiful Hunting Associating stags head etched into the riccasso with the small swastika between the antlers!!! I have owned several other of these daggers made by Luneschloss, and they all had the same etching and DJ head, so this must have been their standard etch with this dagger. A really super cutlass, heavy and long, and looks marvellous. If you collect Hunting/Forestry pieces, don't miss this one.
