SUPER LITTLE NSFK/DLV FLYERS KNIFE- PROJECT.I have had this knife for many years, and was always going to get around to 'sorting it out'. It's a decent example by SMF Solingen. However, when I purchased it, the leather on both the grip and scabbard was appalling. I purchased it in America, from a guy walking around with it. At the time, I thought it would be great for spares, as you never find these bits to use. After having it at home for a while, it was sensible to find a good craftsman to re-leather both grip and scabbard, replace a few of the screws and clean the blade a little. Then I lost it!!! It ended up behind a sofa in my stock room, and I found it in November is a 'spring clean'. I have a wonderful chap who repairs/replaces leather, and he understands the hobby, so nothing is ever 'over restored'. I now have the dagger back with new 'old' leather. It's the same type of blue Moroccan leather used on the originals, and looks absolutely marvellous. I can honestly say, if I didn't tell you about it, and left it to age a while, you would not be able to tell the difference. If I put it into auction somewhere, it would fly away!!! It's that good. Anyway, dagger is early and all nickel solid fittings which have toned down with patina. Bottom scabbard fitting is a little dented and miss-shaped, but all there. Scabbard throat has a number stamped into it, and also the NSFK or DLV symbol, but it is a little worn, so I cannot tell which. Blade is complete and unsharpened. Blade is not mint, and has some age stains etc, but no pitting and no rust. Further careful cleaning will do wonders. There is no short hanger, which has gone to time. With examples of these fetching nearly £1000 now (I have one listed elsewhere!), this is a GREAT opportunity to purchase an original piece at a fraction of the cost.
GREAT EXAMPLE OF AN ORIGINAL EICHORN KUNENDIENST-SALES CATALOGUE.If you are serious about collecting daggers, then you have to own an original sales catalogue, and this is the BEST catalogue ever produced. The Eickhorn company were very serious people, and this is a serious catalogue. It contains in colour and black and white pictures and drawings, ALL of the daggers, swords etc that they produced at the time and you could by. One of these little books would have been available at all, dagger and uniform shops and distributors and you would have placed your order from here. It has red linen bound covers, with the Eickhorn name embossed in gold on the cover and spine. The inside is a treasure trove of information and covers ALL of the weapons available to the different services. Army, Luftwaffe, navy, Police, SS Customs, etc etc etc. At the back is a fold out section in colour, showing the different type of blade etched you could have , as well as Damascus options. Right at the back is another fold out section containing the complete price list of daggers, swords and options. A truly magnificent piece of history for the blade collector. these are VERY rare to find complete and in this condition.

COMPLETE NAVY DAGGER RIG BY HOLLER, STRAPS AND KNOT, SAILING SHIP BLADE.This is a very nice example of a HOLLER made dagger, it is also complete with the original gilded aluminium hanging straps and the original bullion knot, tied in place. HOLLER only made their daggers with a fully etched, sailing ship blade, and this has one of those! HOLLER also only use copper 'springy wire' on their grips, and this is also wrapped with that! All the brass fittings have a near complete fire gilded finish. The scabbard is perhaps 75% intact, but even better, the scabbard has NO dents or indentations in it at all.
The blade retains it's needle sharp point, and is etched both sides with sailing ship scenes. There are a very nice set of hanging straps that accompany this dagger, they show a little 'in use' wear, but are perfect otherwise. Again, a very nice dagger, all complete.

BEAUTIFUL Nr MINT LUFTWAFFE 2nd Pattn DAGGER BY SMF WITH 100% GILDED SWASTIKAS.This dagger by SMF, is perhaps one of the nicest ones I have handled, it's not suffered any age or damage, has retained all of the nickel finish to the metal fittings, but the best of all is the pommel still has 100% of the original factory gilding to the swastikas. The grip is solid celluloid and is a nice orange colour, it is wrapped with aluminium springy wire. There is an original 23cm bullion knot, also in near mint condition. Scabbard has all of the original dull nickel plating, with no damage or lifting. The blade is marked with the SMF 'seated king' logo and is also waffenampt above it. The blade is bright nickel plated and still has protective grease which I have not removed. Add a set of de-luxe hangers to this and you will have a perfect rig. A NICE DAGGER.

MOST UNUSUAL ARMY DAGGER WITH PERSONALISED GRIP WIRE WRAP.As we all know, army dagger do not usually have wire on their grips. They were not designed like this and did not have them from the factory. This dagger was purchased as part of a very old collection before I went away, and I was taken by this personalised dagger! The grip has been lovingly and carefully wrapped with thin silver wire along both twisted 'flutes'. In my opinion it was done in the period and by a conscientious owner to make it look a little different. There is wear to the wire and the patina is there, as well as dirt and grime underneath. The dagger itself is a later type, but in near mint condition. All of the dull nickel silver wash to all the fittings is present, even all the scabbard is perfect. There is a 'type 2' crossguard used by many manufacturers, and the blade is unmarked. However, the blade is also stone mint, with all crossgraining and a needle sharp point. The celluloid grip is a nice cream colour and it is plaster filled, making the dagger quite heavy. Overall the dagger looks really stunning, and looks fantastic. Something different to add to the collection?

LUFTWAFFE 2nd. PATTN. DAGGER WITH STRAPS AND KNOT, BY RARE VIENNA MAKER!I can honestly say I have never had a Luftwaffe dagger by this maker in my 35+ years of collecting. I didn't even know they made some daggers in Vienna, but after some research and a look in Tom Wittmann's book, I see that they did! Tis is made by ZEITLER-WEIN, and their name is etched across the blade under the crossguard. The dagger is in Exc ++ condition, with a little age to the surfaces of the scabbard, but nothing else. Nice tangerine coloured celluloid grip is perfect and wrapped with a single brass wire. The original 23cm knot is wrapped around the grip. A little frayed, but 95% in tact. The scabbard is quite unusual as it's very 'square' in construction. Noticeably flat on the main surfaces, which much more of and edge to the sides. The blade is in near mint condition with all crossgraining. There are a few, minor finger smudges near the tip, but otherwise excellent. There are an original to the piece, set of Luftwaffe hangers with plain fittings. Bullion and cloth straps are fine, if a little dusty. THis type of Luftwaffe dagger is a favourite of mine, and as I said, I have never owned this maker before in the 100's I have handled. A good one for the type collector out there.

FANTASTIC, EARLY 'DLV' FLYERS KNIFE & HANGER.These early flyers knives are either for the DLV or NSFK. Obviously the DLV (Deutscher Luftsportverband) came first as the 'volunteer' Luftwaffe air force. It existed from 1933 until 1937 and then became the NSFK. Germany was forbidden by the Versailles treaty after WW1 to have a military force, so they got round this by have a volunteer, hobby group who flew gliders!! To find one of these little flyers knives, this early, marked with the DLV symbol and in this condition, is virtually unheard of these days. Dagger is beautifully uncleaned and the silver fittings have all developed a smokey grey patina. The ORIGINAL leather on the grip and scabbard is 99% in tact. These is a little scuff to the grip on one side but nothing terrible and could be covered with blue cream polish. All fittings are super. The enamel swastikas on each side of the crossguard are 100% original and not chipped or cracked, MINT! The little leather hanging strap is attached with the nickel snap clip, and all works perfectly. The blade is STUNNING, for a dagger made in the early 1930's, it has survived in a totally MINT state. 100% of the crossgraining is present, and the deeply etched maker PAUL WEYERSBERG is crystal clear. I really don't think you will be able to upgrade this!! A beautiful dagger..................
V NICE EARLY RAD HEWER BY BOKER-SUPERB CONDITION!Another early RAD hewer purchased before I went away. This came with the other nice RAD just listed and is equally as nice. This one is by the famous SS maker BOKER, and has the little tree in an oval, as the trademark. BOKER are a wonderful maker and their quality is superb. This is a beautiful RAD hewer, with all solid, early fittings. Great stag grips, a very nice scabbard that seems to have 100% of the black paint. No dents to the bottom fittings. The blade is very bright and clean, not sharpened and never used to hit anything!! If you don't have a BOKER in your collection....here it is!

SUPER, EARLY RAD HEWER BY RARE MAKER. AXT UND HAUERFABRIKPurchased in a small collection before I went away. This is a very fine example of an early RAD hewer in great condition and by a rare maker. All early solid, heavy construction with Brass/nickel base with full nickel silver plating intact. Nice stag grips are honey coloured and perfect. All silver fittings have not been cleaned for a long time so are developing a nice patina. Scabbard body is undamaged and has the original coating of black paint. It's lifting in some small places due to age etc, but is fine and would clean up even better if desired. Bottom scabbard fitting has a couple of minor carrying dents, not at all unusual bearing in mind the weight and how these were worn. Blade is SUPER clean and has the original mirror-like surface. Grey background to the motto letters!! The makers name and logo of a horses head, are deeply etched into the reverse riccasso. A rare maker and eagerly collected. This company made few daggers and are highly sought after. A very nice RAD hewer!

THIRD REICH PERIOD CAVALRY OFFICERS LIONS HEAD SWORD by ALCOSO.This is the second sword obtained from a trip to South West London. Been in storage for over 25 years, never been in a collection, never cleaned or messed with. An all brass hilted early cavalry officers, lion's head dress sword. Nice heavy cast brass hilt with great detail. Lion's head has red glass eyes. Back strap is deeply cast with ornamentation. The crossguard is plain on the reverse, but has the crossed swords cast into the front. The grip is black celluloid over wood and has triple twisted wires running around it. Tied around the knuckle bow and crossguard, is the remains of the original Third Reich officers sword portepee in green leather and silver lines. Unfortunately the ball has broken off and lost to time. Scabbard is a standard black painted steel type with single ring hanger. Blade is a nickel plated type, in mint condition. The Alcoso trademark (early type) is visible just underneath the crossguard langet. A very nice example of an early, brass officers sword, used and carried during the Third Reich period.
