A BEAUTIFUL GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS DAGGER WITH STRAPS AND ORIGINAL KNOT.I am really pleased to be able to offer this beautiful dagger. Perhaps one of the 'prettiest' if not most elegant of the Third Reich daggers, and it's complete!! This is an EICKHORN piece, with post 1938 squirrel etched to the blade. Dagger just looks lovely with the old nickel silver finish remaining everywhere and it's been left to age and gather patina, which adds to the 'look'. I really can't find any faults with it to tell you about. Mother of Pearl grips are a nice ivory colour. Tied in the assumed correct manner is the original bullion knot. Although there IS a special knot for these daggers, that has very thin cord and a smaller ball, they are rarer than the dagger itself, and it does seem that most Government Officials, used a standard 42cm army type knot. This one has been on here for a very long time, as it has rubbed and worn where the tie comes over the crossguard. Fantastic detail to the crossguard eagle, all the finish and patina are there. Scabbard has full silver plating with no dents or damage to the surface. The scabbard bands are the normal oakleaves with smaller suspension rings. Blade again is wonderful, 99% perfectly preserved with all crossgrain polish and needle sharp tip. Accompanying the dagger are a lovely set of matching Government straps. These have the bullion 'herringbone' weave on the front and deep blue velvet backings. These hangers have been worn and used, as has the dagger. The fittings are in great condition too, with a DRGM marked top clip and de-luxe 'push in' lower clips. I cannot emphasise how nice this dagger looks overall, it sort of 'glows' with originality mad a sense of history. It is also very favourably priced, especially compared to US examples.
HITLER YOUTH KNIFE WITH MOTTO.This is a decent HJ knife, complete with the 'Blut und Ehre' etched on the blade. I am always being asked for these and it's the first one I have had recently that's affordable as mint examples are making £500+ it seems.
Anyway, It's been used, so not a mint item, but remains in good condition. It's made of steel and then nickel plated. The plating has rubbed off in the normal wear areas, around the pommel retaining strap and the edges of the crossguard. Grip is chequered Bakelite and the enamel HJ diamond is deeply set in the obverse panel. Blade has the motto etched on one side and has the RZM maker on the other. It's RZM M7/2 1937. This is the code for Emil Voos, and is a typical product for them as they always featured a small HJ diamond on their HJ daggers. Blade is fine, has been used etc. but not really sharpened etc. Not digs or nicks and the motto is very readable. Scabbard is very nice with most of the ORIGINAL black paint on both side, with just a bit of age to show it's real, original paint. Leather work is all fine and supple and the grip snap loop popper works perfectly.
UNTOUCHED, UNCLEANED NAVY DAGGER COMPLETE RIG, STRAPS AND KNOT!I was pleased to pick this dagger up this week as it is something I really like to find, and untouched piece. Not mint by any means, but this 'reeks' history! and looks as though it was just removed from the officers belt yesterday. Dagger is a nice Eickhorn marked piece with etched blade. All brass fittings, there is a little fire gilding left in places, but mostly the brass is toned with patina. It has not been buffed or polished. Very nice fittings overall. Super cream celluloid grip with twisted brass wire. It has the ORIGINAL cream celluloid knot that has been tied in place for nearly 80 years. It has a little wear on the swing areas, and rubbing to the surface where it touched the uniform etc. However it's FROZEN in place and never been off for all that time. Scabbard is the standard type with lightning bolts etc. The lower part of the scabbard is not dented per se, but has just be slightly flattened from wear and use. I see this a lot with navy daggers as the brass scabbard is so thin and fragile. Rather than being oval and rounded, the surface on both sides is flat. You can't actually notice this, and it's obviously happened due to excessive use and wear. Again, I like things like this as it gives the piece character. The blade is stamped with the post 1938 Eickhorn squirrel on the riccasso. The blade is deeply etched both side with the anchor, dolphins etc. The charcoal background etching is present. The very tip of the blade ahs a few very small surface blemishes, seems there was some moisture in the scabbard and it's affected the very tip of the blade, hardly noticeable and the nickel bright polish finish is still there. To complet the dagger are a set of navy straps. These seem to have been with the dagger for ever, as they also show the same wear and patina. The fittings are gilded aluminium and all are fine and look prefect. There is a very little wear to the backing of the shorter strap, so they should. The buckles are a matching pair.Overall a very pleasing looking dagger indeed. Priced very competitively.

LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS SWORD BY SMF - NO SCABBARD.This is a all aluminium fittings Luftwaffe Officers sword by the SMF company in Solingen. I purchased this many years ago from a family who had the complete sword. However, the son's told me they used to have half each and 'play war'. Unfortunately the scabbard part either broke or was lost and they only kept the sword itself. The sword has aluminium crossguard and sun wheel pommel. Both still have 99% of the fire gilt in the swastikas etc! The blue leather grip has triple twisted wire and both the leather and wire are in near perfect condition. The blade is marked with the SMF seated king trademark. As the blade has not been protected by being in the scabbard, it's somewhat dull in places and could do with a good clean. However, it's in decent condition and has no nicks or rust pits. The blade measures 26", so will fit in most scabbards as it's one of the shorter blades. Then most Luftwaffe pilots were not tall!!! If you have a scabbard or would just like this as a decoration, it's a nice piece.

UNISSUED NAVY DAGGER BY EICKHORN WITH 100% GILT FINISH.Eickhorn made a lovely dagger and for it to look like this after 80 years is a credit to their manufacturing skills. For a change this has the more uncommon, later Eickhorn squirrel stamped into the riccasso of the blade. 9 times out of 10, it will be the normal post 1938 squirrel holding the sword in front of him. This trademark type is thought to have been used from 1942 onwards. Has a squirrel looking over his shoulder, but still holding the sword. dagger is in absolutely beautiful condition and as I said has 100% of the fire gilt over all of the brass surfaces. Unfortunately, it has not been handled too well and there are a few surface dents on the scabbard. Looks like it was packed away with something heavy. In my opinion, it's never been worn as there is no evidence of a knot or hangers ever being on it, and the small surface dents are not due to 'in-wear' damage. Nevertheless, this is a 'cracking' looking piece and makes one of the 'loved and polished to death' navy daggers look very old! The blade is of course mint too. With needle sharp point, and ALL of the charcoal grey definition in the back of the etching. Grip is a perfect piece of cream celluloid, with thin twisted brass wire.
A very good looking dagger.
WHITE GRIP ARMY DAGGER WITH ORIGINAL KNOT.This came from a small estate sale last week along with a nice navy dagger (also listed). Completely untouched piece, it is one of the later produced pieces that have a dull grey finish overall. This is virtually all still there. Very nice cream celluloid grip with no issues, and the ORIGINAL silver bullion knot, still tied in place. The crossguard has the 'flat-hatched beak' eagle, a generic type-design used by quite a few companies. The scabbard is dent and damage free. The blade is stone mint! With complete 100% crossgrain polish running down both sides. There is no maker to the blade. This is actually a very nice looking dagger of the type. I have priced it competitively.
MID-PERIOD 1st Pattn.LUFTWAFFE DAGGER WITH CHAINS.Taken in part-exchange at the last Birmingham show, this is a decent example of a so called 'mid-period' 1st Pattn. Luftwaffe dagger. I suppose it's a fair description as these daggers were certainly made of different materials throughout their history. Early ones are all heavy nickel and nickel plated etc, there are all aluminium versions and then there are these, which are a combination of both. This is made by Emil Voos, who were not a huge maker of Luftwaffe products, but are very well known for their quality and the famous Voos 2nd Luft with double etched blade and ivory grip!! A stunning dagger. The dagger crossguard and pommel are made of the wartime grey alloy and then nickel plated. This was a very popular metal alloy, and many daggers and bayonets are made of this as it is injection moulded. Plating is very good, slightly thin in some places, but covers everywhere. Pommel and crossguard swastikas are very clear. A very nice blue leather covered grip with triple wire wrap. All original leather with no damage. Scabbard has very decent blue leather covering. All original and matches grip colour etc. The upper and lower scabbard fittings are steel and then nickel plated. They show a little age, but otherwise are very good. The chains are attached and are the aluminium versions with an OLC marked belt clip. This period of dagger had this combination of fittings, steel, alloy and aluminium. Typical construction. The blade is stamped with the Emil Voos trademark of a snake around a tree stump. The blue leather blade washer is present. The blade is a polished steel type, has quite a lot of surface scratches which should polish out, but is very sound, with no edge nicks or pitting. A good example of it's type and I have priced it VERY competitively for an original piece.
RAD MAN'S HEWER BY RARE MAKER - PUMA.I have had many RAD hewers, I like them as they are a substantial dagger with lots of 'gravitas'. However, I can't remember having one by PUMA before. There are quite a lot of makers and I know people collect them by the different manufacturers. So here is a different one for you! It's a later produced item, with the hilt etc made in steel and then bright nickel plated. All metal parts have received the same 'bright' plating and it looks good. No antique burnishing finish was applied to these daggers, so they look very clean. Nice stag grips with bright nickel screws abs retaining nuts. Hilt has a small patch of discolouration on the riccasso but otherwise all the finish is there. Scabbard fittings are also nickel plates steel and are in very good condition. No dents to the lower fitting as its steel and much harder than the earlier brass/nickel ones. scabbard paint is complete and original to the dagger. It has age to the surface finish. The blade is wonderful being virtually in mint condition. All original polish is present and the motto has all its grey etched colour. The PUMA trademark of a Puma head in a box with Solingen underneath is perfect and clear. Great later dagger with rare maker.

THIRD REICH NAVY BLUE MOIRE 'DAY' UNIFORM BELT - BRASS BUCKLES.These belts prove to be very popular with collectors so I have managed to obtain another. This is an EARLY Third Reich navy blue moire cloth undress belt. It's complete with all the early solid brass fittings, buckle and sliders. Later in the period these were made of the same metal as the navy hangers, gilded aluminium, but initially in the early 1930's they were solid brass. Beautiful detail and quality to the buckle and keeper. Lion's head sliders also lovely detail and these would have had the dagger straps attached to them. Dark blue moire ribbed material on the outside with dark blue velvet on the inside. This one hs been personally modified to just fit the original owner, and he had quite a small waist! There is no wear or damage to the out side of the belt and fabric at all. There is a very small patch of wear to the velvet inside just where the buckle catch is, but you can't see it.
Great looking, EARLY navy belt.

FANTASTIC 'HUGE' FORESTRY CUTLASS WITH SKINNING KNIFE BY CLEM & JUNG.This is a monster piece!! Measures 2' feet overall in scabbard! How these guys carried some of these daggers, amazes me! Anyway, it's a wonderful cutlass in great condition and COMPLETE with the original skinning knife!! This is a piece definitely carried in the Third Reich period as the Clem & Jung stamped trademark comes from that period. So probably made in the early 1930's and carried on from there. All brass fittings with a hard black leather scabbard, with provision for the skinning knife. Super dark stag grip, with original 3 brass acorns in a row. Fluted plain clamshell. Huge plain brass scabbard fittings. Each one numbered under the staples. Blade is really nice VERY clean, near mint with near perfect nickel plating and deep, dark etch panels which have not been polished over at all. The etched depict forestry and hunting scenes. Deer, hunters with rifles etc etc. Blade is triple etched with oakleaves running down the spine area. Clem & Jung trademark deeply stamped into riccasso. Skinning knife in equally good condition. Mint blade, stag grip has one matching brass acorn on the grip. Scabbard has, in addition to the normal bayonet- frog- type stud, twin brass rings on the top scabbard fitting. Two leather straps would have been part of the belt accessory to hold this huge dagger up, and would have gone to a belt fixing. Wonderful huge cutlass!!
