RARE POLICE OFFICERS 'SEITENGEWEHRE' CLAMSHELL BAYONET. WKC!According to the History of the German bayonet book, pages 153 and 154. This particular bayonet was only around with this grip insignia in 1934 and 1935. After this they were issued withthe oval, normally seen police insignia. Often referred to as the SA Feldjagerkorps bayonet. This insignia is actually from the Nazi period Prussian Polizei. This bayonet is pictured and offered in the WKC calalogue and it seemed WKC were the most common firm to offer this bayonet. It is not a LONG clamshell, in fact measured overall some 15 3/4". It is made this size and has not been modified or shortened. Bayonet has solid nickel fittings which have been bright nickel plated. Stag rips with the distinctive Prissian police star grip badge featuring the tiny swastika on the eagles breast. I have included some photos from the book which show the same bayonet and insignia. One of the rivets on the grip has broken off at the back, leaving a small hole, but it is still perfectly attached etc. Nickel clamshell, lovely, mint conditioned blade with WKC stamp under the clamshell. Nice scabbard with black leather body and nickel fittings.
SA DAGGER BY EICKHORN RZM DOUBLE MARKED.This is a decent SA dagger by Eickhorn with the desirable double marking on the blade. The Eickhorn squirrel and then the RZM number underneath.M7/66 1938. Unfortunately some one has tried the sharpen or polish the blade in the past and used a very harsh polishing tool or similar, there are various grinding marks across the blade surface. Has not touched most of the blade or the makers marks. The rest of the dagger is lovely. Super, grip and perfect crossguards. Very nice scabbard. It is priced accordingly.
SILVER BULLION 42cm DAGGER KNOT-THICK CORD.A nice example of the long bullion dress knot, used on a number of daggers. Army, Red Cross and chained SS to name but a few. This is an excellnt knot, near mint but with a little age here and there. Has been on a dagger and it's probably been an army one. Rare to find original knots this nice.
ARMY OFFICERS DAGGER BY ALCOSO WITH ORANGE GRIP.Alcoso army daggers are not common, theu usually have a plain white grip too, so having a solid celluliod one in orange is again quite unusual. Very good condition overall. Nickel plating is present over 100% of the crossguard, pommel and scabbard. There is some slight age bubbling to the crossguard, but not serious. A typical, textbook Alcoso dagger with the tapered pommel nexk and unique earlier crossguard eagle.Blade is stone mint. Has 100% crossgrain and the Alcoso trademark is sideways on the blade.

LUFTWAFFE PARADE SWORD BY SMF-ALUMINIUM.This is an extremely nice Luftwaffe Officers parade sword by SMF. This is a slightly later type sword and is made of brushed aluminium with blue leather covering. Aluminium swords were the 'new metal' and in the 1940's were a revalation in metal. Because thay don't really age, the aluminium fittings nearly look as good now as they did then. This has 85% of the original factory gilt still on the large pommel and crossguards. The leather covering to the grip and scabbard are in the original mid-blue colour. It has not been handled or polished, so has not lost the colour. The sword still has the original crescent leather hanger attached to the twin scabbard rings. This is a rare hanger and is often missing. The blade is MINT. It is 28" in length. The SMF trade mark and the little 'waffanampt' inspection stamp are deeply impressed into the blade. The scabbard leather is lovely. There are just a few very small blemishes to the edge near the bottom. Not surprising after 70+ years. The overall length of the sword is 36 1/2 " long. A good looking sword.

NEAR MINT NAVY DAGGER BY EICKHORN WITH KNOT.Eickhorn were by far the most prolific dagger manufacturer. I estimate that 80% of the navy daggers I buy or sell are by them. This is a very nice example with the post 1938 trademark stamped into the blade. It has a LOT of the original fire gilt lefy on the brass surfaces, perhaps over 85% and it looks great! The grip is perfect, the original knot is tied in place and has been there for ever. It is slighty worn in the swinging area. Scabbard is very nice with nearly all the fire gilt. Blade is wonderful. Needle sharp and has a mint surface with bright metal and deeply etched grey area. This is a classic and near perfect example of an Eickhorn dagger, complete with the knot.

BEAUTIFUL COMPLETE NAVY DAGGER RIG, BY HORSTER WITH HANGERS, KNOT AND HAMMERED SCABBARD.I was very pleased to buy this directly from a family last week, along with some Norwegian souvenirs. Their father was an intelligence officer and ended up in Norway at the end of the war. This is a lovely, complete navy dagger by HORSTER and has a hammered scabbard, knot and mint matched hangers. Nice brass finish with evidence of gilt remaining. Perfect grip. Original knot in a strange tie, but has been like it for ever. Very nice blade with perfect finish and etch. Scabbard is the extra cost hammered variety. Attached to the dagger are the original hanging straps which are in mint condition. They are the gilded aluminium type. And are perfectly matched. A COMPLETE navy dagger, with history and in great conditin.
SUPER CLEAN NAVY DAGGER WITH KNOT BY HORSTER with GOLD knot.Navy daggers still are one of my absolute favorites. This is a VERY nice example by an uncommon maker EF HORSTER. It retains it's original gold rayon navy knot as well as a great deal of he original fire gilding. Nice, perfect cream celluloid grip with thin twisted wire. Nice brass fittings with gilt. Scabbard is basically dent free and has 50% gilt to the surface. Blade is LOVELY, has needle sharp tip, perfect bright surface and perfect gret etching and background. Horster trademark is on the obverse surface. A really nice navy dagger. Hard to find like this now.
VERY RARE MAKER ARMY DAGGER COMPLETE RIG!Army daggers with unusual or rare makers have become very collectable and hard to find. Since tom Wittmann's book was published, the rarer types have dissapeared into collections etc. This is a very nice dagger indeed and is by the great maker ERNST PACK AND SONNE. EP&S had a great trademark of a large blacksmith swinging his hammer, surronded by an oval with the makers name etched inside. It's a huge trademark, and takes up nearly an inch of the blade surface. It's an early dagger so has heavy nickel plating and a lovely scabbard. Crossguard is the typical EP&S type. It has a beautiful darker orange grip and the original bullion knot tied in place. In addition, the original hanging straps are with it, making it a complete dagger! This lloks a great piece, is a rare dagger and has the condition too.
EARLY RAD MAN'S HEWER BY HAMMESFAR.These RAD hewers are big and heavy. Were designed to be used, but seldom were. Were originally worn by all ranks of the RAD, both officers and men, unit a much more delicate officers pattern dagger was introduced. Early RAD hewers are very well made, of quality materials. Solid nickel fittings and HEAVY. This is one of those. Not a mint dagger, as it has certanly been used and carried a LOT. Good solid nickel crossguard fitting and nice stag grip plates. The steel scabbard has nickel top and bottom fittings, but there seems to the the remains of a brighter 'chrome' plating, whch was used on these pieces. A good solid bowie type blade. Motto is a little worn but still very clear. Blade surface is very clean with no pitting and no damage. does show slight sharpening marks to the edge, but not serious. As I said, this piece was used! Scabbard paint is basically gone, but the blued under finish is there and the dagger looks very presentable. Blade has the small HAMMESFAR trademark and the RAJD stamp in a triangle. A good looking piece!
