HJ/DJ 1936 BERLIN OLYMPICS COMMEMORATIVE KNIFE IN ISSUE PACKETThese beautiful little knives were made by the Emil Voos company for sale as commemorative souvenirs of the 1936 Olympics. I know there is some controversy around that perhaps they didn't exist and have been made since the war. I don't believe that at all. It is some years since these all were found and brought onto the market, perhaps 15 years ago. I was around then, and saw the original packing box that they all came in! It had been stored badly and the top layer and bottom layer of daggers had been affected by the damp. The paper packets were destroyed and the daggers were rusty. Further down into the crate the daggers and packets were better and complete. I purchased for my own collection, one of the very rusty ones with part packet and a couple of the complete ones with no damage. I still have the better one in my collection to this day. All the daggers were identical, apart from one thing. Some had real stag grips, some had imitation stag grips made of wood. I am pleased to be able to offer another one of these very interesting collectables. The dagger itself is mint and un-issued (as they all were). This blade is in mint condition. It has the party day,Olympic etching one one side in gold/black/white. The other side has the Emil Voos logo/trademark. This dagger has real stag grips with the tiny enamel HJ diamond affixed to the grip. The scabbard is the small DJ size and is in mint condition. They all came with little paper bags/packets, and again these were all the same, printed with the Emil Voos details and over stamped in red ink for the BERLINER OLYMPIADE. I think these are super little knives and have thoroughly enjoyed owning my one for all these years. I hope the next owner of this does too
EICKHORN SCHARNHORST SWORD WITH MEGA RARE TRIPLE ETCHED BLADE.This is a very nice parade sword anyway, without the joy of a fantastic, triple etched Eickhorn factory blade!! Purchased in America last year, I have held onto it as I just did not want to part with it. I will never get another like this. Firstly the sword itself is one the Eickhorn Field Marshal series - Scharnhorst. HAs aluminium hilt with lion's head and fire gilded over. It has red glass eyes in the Lion's head. There is some useage and wear to the carrying surfaces of the high points of the hilt. It's been worn properly. Scabbard is dent free and has 99% of the original black paint. It is the blade that is the STUNNING surprise. Eickhorn offered etched blade options, and their workmanship is always absolutely fantastic. The acid etched designs are crystal clear and deep and sharp. The etch on this blade is BEAUTIFUL. One side has the panel showing a scene of some description and it is bordered by scrolls and the closed wing eagle and swastikas. The reverse side has a beautiful floral design running the complete length. The various etched offered by Eickhorn can be found in the Eickhorn sales catalogue published at the time. HOWEVER....the etch on this sword blade seems to be unique. Tom Wittmann, the world renown author and expert on this subject, has NEVER seen this etch offered on a sword blade. The actual etch is shown in the catalogue and it is usually found on 'memory of my service time' etched dress bayonets, but it's the first time seen on a sword blade. The etch depicts Infantrymen with rifles etc, running across a battlefield. The detail is phenomenal, and with a glass or a loop you can see the uniform detail, helmets, tiny rifles etc etc. I cannot emphasise enough how rare this sword etch is. Anyone who collects swords or etched blades, really needs to add this to your collection. I am certain it's nearly a ONE OFF, so you could end up owning the only one in the world!!! Fantastic sword, beautiful thing.
BEAUTIFUL LAND CUSTOMS DAGGER BY HORSTER - BEST ONE I HAVE OWNED!Here is one of my other favourite daggers in virtually stone mint condition. Land Customs daggers are obviously based on the army design with nice subtle differences. The crossguard has upswept eagles wings, they use laurel leaves instead of oakleaves as a decoration, and the scabbard and grip are covered in lovely green leather!!! This is a smashing, all aluminium example by EF HORSTER. The pommel, crossguard and scabbard fittings are all in near mint brushed aluminium. The green leather grip is in mint condition with springy aluminium wire wrapped around it. The scabbard also has near mint perfect green leather. One tiny blemish on one side but no material missing, and perhaps 2mm in length-tiny. The blade is an absolute beauty. Same construction as an army type , this has FULL polish and FULL crossgraining running along the complete length. Superb! Attached to the dagger are a mint set of Land Customs dagger hangers. I am including them with the dagger as they compliment it perfectly, but the straps are modern reproductions. However, they are BRILLIANT reproductions 99% correct in every way. I can remove them if the purchaser does not require them, but until you buy a set of real ones (£450 ish) I would leave these on, they look great. Amazing dagger, one not to be upgraded.............unless you find one in a bag. (this is still cheaper than American sites $2800-$3000)
MOST UNUSUAL VERTICAL DAGGER HANGER FOR SS OR NSKK MOUNTED TROOPS.Why can I be so specific about this? Well many years ago I purchased a lovely untouched SA dagger with a very similar hanger to this already installed on the dagger. However, the dagger also has an original 3 line dedication on the crossguard and top of the scabbard, translates ' A gift from SA Reitersturm 1/66'. This SA Sturm was a mounted division, so hence proves the dagger hanger. Anyway, everything is supposition I suppose. This nevertheless, is a beautiful, custom made 100% hanger. In black leather with nickel clip and fittings. It slips up the scabbard and holds the dagger vertically with another snap loop around the grip. Black popper and snap clip are marked with the same froral design you find on other period poppers. The hanger fits a Holbein dagger like a glove, and being BLACK lether, this is for either a pre-RZM SS dagger or an early NSKK one. It looks absolutely wonderful on an early 33 SS man's dagger! I have shown my Sa dagger with similar hanger for comparison purposes only.
LUFTWAFFE 2nd PATTN DAGGER BY SMF WITH HANGERS AND KNOT.Purchased at a recent local show, the Luftwaffe dagger is a very nice collectable example. HAs a lemon yellow grip in solid celluloid with silver 'springy' wire. There is a near mint 23cm knot wrapped around the lower portion. Crossguard and pommel are patina'd aluminium. Scabbard has lost some of the very dark finish associated with SMF, but other than that is fine with no damage or dents. Bright aluminium scabbard bands and rings. Blade is nickel plated and has the SMF log plus the little 'stick bird' waffanamt. Blade is in Exc ++ condition with one small finger smudge. There are a very nice set of hangers in near mint condition. The backings are canvas instead of the velvet type. They have been period shortened to suit the height of the original owner.

LUFTWAFFE 2nd. Pattn DAGGER BY HORSTER, WITH KNOT AND STRAPS.Still one of my favourite daggers, the design is so appealing. Dagger is complete with the original 23cm knot and an unusual set of original straps. All aluminium fittings with nice definition to the pommel and crossguard. Dark yellow/light orange solid celluloid grip with springy wire. Grip is perfect apart from a VERY small hairline crack on the reverse les than 1/2 cm long, hidden by the knot. Been there for a very long time as it's picked up the grime in the line. Scabbard has good definition, has a small surface indentation on the lower scabbard fitting, hardly noticeable. No other damage or dents. This dagger has been used and carried a lot! One of the top scabbard rings is out of true from supporting the dagger when carried, you can also see 'swing wear' on the fittings where the rings have rubbed and worn the scabbard bands. Blade is nice and clean, with no sharpening or nicks etc. Needle sharp point. HORSTER trademark is etched into the reverse surface. There is an original 23cm knot tied around the grip, has some fraying on the swing area but is fine for it's age. The hangers are the more unusual type with grey/blur canvas backs. Just a variation in manufacturer, but nice to have. They are in good, serviceable condition, with no fraying or damage. A good 'as worn' example of a Luftwaffe dagger complete rig.

GREAT COMPLETE RED CROSS MAN'S HEWER WITH FROG.This is a fine example of the Red Cross Hewer, complete with the original Red Cross leather frog. These frogs are UNIQUE to this dagger, don't fit anything else and you can't use any other frogs but there. None fit!! In excellent condition overall with original finish to the metal fittings, with just a little wear on the high spots. Nice black Bakelite grips. Scabbard has 95% of the original black gloss paint with a little carrying wear to one edge and light age spidering only. Scabbard fittings have plating still on them. No screws missing. Frog is in lovely condition, has been on this dagger since it was made. Reverse is marked with the letter 'D'. Blade is in near mint condition, has a couple of minor finger smudges, but still has old grease and razor sharp serrated teeth down one side. The blade has no maker mark (they never did) but is stamped Ges.Getsch underneath the crossguard lozenge. A hefty dagger, you get a lot for your money, like RAD hewers. Nice example.
UNTOUCHED-UNCLEANED RLB 2nd Pattn. OFFICERS DAGGER.Sometimes an 'out of the blue' phone contact results in a super find. This was one of them. Owned by the same family for 70 years and bought back by the sellers father. This is a wonderful, but not mint, example of the RLB Officers dagger. A very Art Deco design, the dagger has remained uncleaned for the past 70 years, it has lost some of the silver plating/wash in places revealing the brass base underneath. Pommel is an early type with sharp ridges. The grip is covered in very dark blue, nearly black Moroccan leather, has a bulbous middle and the silver and enamel swastika badge is affixed in the centre. Leather is in perfect condition. The enamel is perfect. Crossguard is mainly brass coloured, but is in perfect shape with large deco style outstretched wings. The 'bird' is clutching the 'floating' swastika in it's feet. Scabbard is a steel based type, again the leather is perfect, but a little lighter in places. Nothing missing, no nicks or missing pieces. All the scabbard fittings are nickel/silver plated, again some places the base metal is showing through a little. The blade of this RLB is very nice. It is mirror-bright and has a needle-like tip. All of the original crossgraining is intact and other than a couple of extremely minute signs of age it remains in nearly Mint condition. The blade is unmarked but we often see this on RLB Daggers. The original leather blade buffer is in place, also matching all of the other leather components. A wonderful 'out the woodwork' piece, never been in a collection before.
TRANSITIONAL DOUBLE MARKED SS 33 DAGGER - HENKELSA very good example of this type of dagger. The interim time of the transition from earlier all nickel daggers to those completely under the control of the RZM. This is a mid period 1933 SS mans dagger by HENKELS. Blade is lovely, near mint with all crossgrain. Motto has full dark background. Reverse is double marked. At the top is the oval trademark for the JA HENKELS company with the 'twins' logo. Below that is the RZM symbol and the rzm issue number 15/38. 38 being the date of manufacture. As this is a later dagger it has the alloy plated fittings which are showing a little bubbling. The ebony grip is perfect and there is a nickel eagle with patina'd SS runes button. Scabbard has plated metal top and bottom fittings. Scabbard body has a near perfect coating of original black paint with a little age spidering and you can see all the crossgraining underneath where they roughened the metal to make the paint adhere. A nice looking dagger, if it was not for the slight bubbling on the crossguards, this would be a mint dagger. Double marked '33 SS daggers are hard to find and highly collectable.
SS OFFICERS PARADE DAGEN- LATER TYPE BY PETER DAN IEL KREBSAs the war progressed and materials became more scarce, the quality of metal and types used changed too. Daggers and swords were made of inferior things, and this is reflected across the board. This is a later type of SS officers parade dagen, made by the desirable manufacturer, Peter Daniel Krebs. Their motto was a lobster in a shield, and this is deeply stamped in the blade riccasso. This sword is complete and un-messed with, but has suffered with some moisture and plate lifting. However, it is 100% original, and very good value for an SS Officers sword. Hilt and scabbard parts are nickel plated over steel and this has lifted/worn off in quite a few places. The pommel nut unscrews and it has the stepped interior and locking nut and cap, same as earlier swords. A sure sign of authenticity, as you cannot take these apart! The grip is again painted wood with 13 horizontal grip wires. There is a central SS button. Both the top of the scabbard throat and the underneath of the dagen crossguard are stamped with the little SS runes in a box. Scabbard fittings are affixed by side screws. Scabbard has a good covering of black paint. The blade has suffered quite a lot from the moisture and really could do with a good clean, which would bring it back somewhat. It's possible to do this with SS blades as they are not plated, so the base metal will clean very well, The blade is quite stained throughout it's length and the bottom 3 or 4 inches at the tip are slightly pitted. Dagen is totally original and is in 'as found' condition. Priced accordingly.
