SUPER AND VERY RARE 'USED' CUSTOMS THIRD REICH SWORD KNOTThe Third Reich customs service had their own, specific, designated dress dagger, but not an 'actual' sword. They used several varieties, and the Eickhorn catalogue mentions that there was a type authorised as a Customs sword, and also a pattern sword appears in the Third Reich era WKC sales catalogue as Model Nr. 1016 “Zollbeamten Sabel” (Customs Official’s Sabre).However, both of these swords would have had THIS specific sword knot tied on the hilt. An incredibly rare knot to find on it's own, and if you have one of the swords, this needs to go on it!! Wide black leather strap with triple silver wires running down the length. The ball has a plain stem, but the acorn has interspersed green and silver weave. This knot has been on a sword and has a little wear to the strap. Needs to go back on a sword!!
Code: 2529Price: 225.00 GBP
UNCLEANED NAVY DAGGER WITH KNOT BY HORSTER WITH SAILING SHIP BLADE.Purchased from a recent auction trip, this is a very nice example of an uncommon navy dagger maker, and one of the few who offered a sailing ship blade etch. Dagger has been left for years and has nice patina everywhere , especially all over the grip and in the crevices. Grip is a deep cream celluloid and looks like ivory. Tied in the standard navy manner is the original bullion knot, which has toned to a gold colour with the age and patina. Unusually, the knot has an ordinary finish to the end of the ball, not the 'cats anus' type. However, it's been on there for 70+ years, so is the exception to the 'navy knot' rule. Good quality brass fittings to the pommel and the crossguard. The scabbard is a standard navy type, has a nice colour and no dents or damage. The blade is lovely, and apart for a little staining near the crossguard, is stone mint and has a great SAILING SHIP etch on both sides. The EuF Horster trademark in on the obverse of the blade riccasso. A nice looking dagger, rare maker, and lots of character.
LUFTWAFFE 2nd Pattn DAGGER BY EICKHORN WITH ORANGE GRIP AND GILDED SWASTIKAS.This looks really nice as there is a huge contrast in colours. The grip is a nice deep orange with twisted aluminium wire wrap. The grey patina pommel has the original gold/gilt finish to the swastikas. It's about 75% on one side and 55% on the other. Contrasted with the orange grip are the darker finished aluminium fittings and the darker finish to the scabbard. The blade is a nice nickel plated variety with the post 1938 Eickhorn squirrel etched into the surface. Looks great!!

RARE MAKER, 2nd Pattn LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY ROBT KLAASNice to find a more unusual maker for a Luftwaffe dagger, as they have unique characteristics, as shown in Tom Wittmann's Luftwaffe book. This is made by the ROBERT KLAAS firm and has the twin 'kissing kranes' logo etched onto the blade. Pommel is slightly different to others, grip is thinner and seems longer. It's a nice lemon yellow and has a single twisted silver wire running around the grip. Crossguard again is slightly different to others with a different pebbled pattern to the rear. Blade is a very nice heavily nickeled variety, needle sharp. Scabbard is bright and clean and has twin dome head screws at the top. A nice, unusual dagger. Not seen one of these as far as I can remember.

NICE LUFTWAFFE 2nd Pattn> DAGGER BY SMF.Another Luftwaffe dagger from the collection. A dagger without accessories, and slightly different to the other SMF. This one has an airplane grey finish scabbard, orange grip and thin twisted wire wrap. Other than that it is identical. Brushed aluminium fittings, nice pommel. Grip is crack and damage free. Scabbard is also dent free, and has 10% of airplane grey finish to the obverse, about 70% remaining on the reverse. Blade has a nice finish and again has the Seated King SMF trademark with Waffanampt inspection stamp. Add a knot and set of hangers and it will be a very good example.

NICE, COMPLETE LUFTWAFFE DAGGER RIG BY SMF, DAGGER, HANGERS & KNOT.Last week I managed to buy a small collection of Luftwaffe daggers and some HJ knives, all will be listed shortly. This is a decent example of the 2nd Luftwaffe dagger made by SMF. They were quite prolific in making Luftwaffe edged weapons, daggers and swords, and made a good product. This has a nice mid0yellow grip with aluminium springy wire. One tiny hairline crack to the grip under the pommel at the back. Otherwise this dagger is damage free. It has the original 23cm bullion knot tied around the grip. Good quality scabbard with muck of the silver finish evident. No dents or damage. The blade is a nickel plated type with the SMF 'Seated King' logo etched into the blade. Stamped into the blade further down is the 'stick bird' inspection waffanampt mark. Hangers are the de-luxe type with oakleave clips and leather tops to the straps. Nice looking dagger and all complete.

A RARE, EARLY EXAMPLE OF SS '33 DAGGER BY RZM 188.Collecting SS daggers is an art in itself. Many topics are discussed and many books written on the subject. Perhaps the best are the ones by Tom Wittmann and the newer one by Ralf Seigert. Tom's book has every bit of history you wish to know about the SS and their blades. Ralf's book is full of close up pictures. The RZM or Reichszeugmeisterei, started to take over the organisation of the military supply process from 1934, and this included overseeing the production and quality of edged weapons! Many collectors regard RZM marked and produced SS and SA daggers as of lesser quality, but this initially is completely untrue. Early marked daggers were produced of exactly the same materials as the 'maker marked' SS daggers. Ebony grips, all nickel fittings, quality blades etc. Identical!! This example is identical to the one shown in Tom Wittmann's SS book on page 20. Of initial production, and with the lower crossguard stamped with the Group "I" mark. The dagger features all solid nickel grossguards and grip eagle,the scabbard is dent free and retains 99% of the ORIGINAL black painted finish. The blade is in near perfect condition. Up near the crossguard are the SS runes deeply etched in a double circle, 188/35 underneath and under that RZM symbol in another double circle. To date this RZM code has not been identified against a known manufacturer, and it remains a rare mark/type and dagger to find. The blade has virtually all of the original factory 'crossgraining' polish/finish to it. Towards the tip of the blade and just past the beginning of the motto, the blade has some 'clouding' to the mirror finish, preventing it from being a 100% mint blade. There is one old finger smudge near the top, but this is also very feint. Considering this dagger is now 81 years old, it is in remarkable condition!! The ebony grip is in perfect condition with no real damage to speak of, just a few age dents etc. Everything fits like a glove, no gaps, no lifting. Airtight fit between the crossguard and top scabbard throat. A really lovely example of this rare EARLY, SS dagger.
ALL COTTON BEVO NSDAP - PARTY ARMBAND.A great little party armband here. All one piece construction and a cleaver piece of cloth weaving. The blak swastika and white background are all integrally woven into the red main armband. BEVO style. No separate application, just all woven together. Has been worn and used. Some slight wear to one edge through use. Hand sewn down the back, no damage, just honest grubbiness from age and use. Very clean and clear colours.
Code: 2522Price: 85.00 GBP
INTERESTING COTTON SMALL PARTY FLAG- NSDAPNot quite sure what this little pennant or flag could have been used for. It measures 20" x 16", is double sided and has a sewn hem on one edge either for a rope or hung from a pole. It is made of high quality red cotton and has a printed swastika sewn to each side. It was probably hung from a pole horizontally so you could see each side. Bright, clean colours, a few very tiny moth holes on the hem. Otherwise in PERFECT condition. Great size for display, especially as a backdrop or drawer cover for SA daggers etc.
BEAUTIFUL 'GOLD' THIRD REICH NAVY KNOT-RAYON.Towards the end of the war, a new man made material was used Rayon. This is a beautiful, golden toned, Third Reich naval dagger knot in rayon. Looks fantastic, and would go extremely well on an mid to later dagger in mint condition. Typical construction, with fine cord and ball. Bottom of ball is finished in the 'navy' type of puckered finish. Quite long, is over the 42cm so will easily tie well on a dagger or sword.
