VERY EARLY SET OF DE-LUXE ARMY DAGGERS HANGERS.I don't remember having a set of army dagger hangers this nice or this early! There are innumerable variations with quality and type of fittings used on dagger hangers. Luftwaffe ones in particular, which can go from very standard and plain to, gilded and cast with oak leaves etc. Army dagger hangers vary rarely go 'that little bit special', but this set does. I say it's a very early set, stemming from the early 1930's, just at the beginning of the Third Reich period, as all the metal fittings on here are in cast BRASS. Originally they would have been silver washed or plated, but most of this has now worn off. The clips are brass, the slides and buckles are brass, so are the swing tops and main hanging clip. This was very soon changed to the cast Mazak alloy stuff, so these are very early production and what quality! The two bottom snap clips are cast all around with oak leaves! As are the slides and the heavy oval buckles. The top clip is also cast oak leaves and is also marked with the DRGM trademark. Even the two brass swing tabs have a sprig of oak leaves cast on each one!!! The long bullion fronted fabric hangers are in good condition. The bullion is fine. The reverse dark green velvet has a couple of minor wear areas, but these are 80+ years old and have been used properly! A fantastic, unique set. If you have a lovely early 'slant gripped' army, or perhaps a Generals dagger or similar, these are the hangers for you.
A NICE DOUBLE MARKED HITLER YOUTH KNIFE BY HERDER.A very well preserved Hitler Youth knife by Rich.Arb.Herder. It has their name and logo stamped on the reverse and also the RZM code M7/18 1940. Really nice to get this double marking and the date. Of course as this is a 1940 piece, it does not have the motto on the blade, however, the blade is in excellent condition and is complete with the leather washer. It has been lightly sharpened at some time, but these were supposed to be 'scout knives' and were used accordingly. Nickel plating to the hilt and crossguard is all very good. HJ diamond is chip free and sits nicely in the chequered grips. Brown leather belt loop and small cross strap are fine and work properly. The steel scabbard is amazing and has survived with 99% of it's original paint and no damage, looks fantastic.

MINIATURE THIRD REICH DAGGER TYPE KNOT.I don't come across these any more, if you have a nice Horster or Alcoso sized miniature army dagger, or even if you perhaps have a miniature navy dagger, then this miniature knot will finish it off beautifully. its about 23cm overall, made of slightly toned silver bullion. Has the little slide and a red insert in the bottom of the ball.
VERY NICE PAIR OF CUSTOMS DAGGER HANGERS-NEAR MINT.In all of the original Customs hangers I have had, they are either in well used condition or virtually mint! There seems to be nothing in between. Therese are a beautifully preserved set in virtually unused condition. The bullion fronts with twin green lines running down, the aluminium buckles and fittings, which feature laurel leaves (not oak leaves). The deep green, velvet backings. If you have a Customs dagger in mint or near mint condition, then these are for you. Reasonably priced too.

THIRD REICH SS/POLICE, SWORD OR BAYONET KNOT??To be honest there is some confusion over the actual used of these ORIGINAL knots. I have seen them called SS- Police knots, bayonet knots, etc etc. Some dealers have tried to charge a lot of money for them, by saying they are SS Nco sword knots. The colours on the knot, being black/silver, are only known on SS sword knots or SS bayonet knots. They are similar in design to them, but don't have any pure identification etc. In my humble opinion, they ARE SS or Police designated, and are an end of the war design to perhaps go on a SS NCO's sword, or dress bayonet. A lot were discovered as surplus stock after the war and released into the colleting market, but I have also had several edged weapons with this tied on, and evident that the knot had been there for the past 70 years! Anyway, they are what they are. Silver bullion strap with twin black lines running down each side. A black/silver slide, then the actual ball has a black top, with alternating silver and black threads running around the base. These are still very nice looking knots and go well on a number of edged weapons.
FANTASTC STAG GRIP, SINGLE ETCH 'MEMORY OF SERVICE TIME' DRESS BAYONET.Arguably Eickhorn made the best example of etched bayonets, their quality was faultless and second to none. This is a classic EICKHORN short etched dress bayonet with beautiful stag grips, original parade frog and original parade knot!! The hilt and crossguard fittings are heavily nickel plated. The scabbard retains all of the original black paint and the patent leather frog and company portepee have been together for ever. The nickel plated, carbine length blade is in mint condition and the beautiful etched panel is absolutely perfect. It is Eickhorn classic 'In Memory of my Service Time' etch within two scrolls, and bordered by oak leaves. At each end of the etch are two 'closed wing' Wehrmacht eagles. Super thing. This exact etch is shown at the back of the Eickhorn sales catalogue (a copy of which I have for sales on this site) it is designated as 3219.
EICKHORN LONG 'MEMORY OF MY SERVICE TIME' ETCHED BAYONET.This is a great comparison and partner the other Eickhorn etched bayonet just listed. This is a standard by LONG dress bayonet, with standard chequered grips. However the etch on the blade is identical to the stag griped version, BUT it is a bit more complete, a bit longer!! The full etch would not fit on the short carbine blades, so Eickhorn left off one of the 'fleur du lys' finishes at the top end of the blade!! An interesting fact (perhaps). Anyway the longer blade has the full etch with floral swirls at both ends! The main 'In Memory of my Service Time' is exactly the same. Writing in 2 scrolls and two eagles, one at each end. The reverse of the blade has the stamped post 1938 Eickhorn trademark. The scabbard has virtually all the original paint. There is a nice leather frog attached to the scabbard. The hilt has all the nickel plating and the original red felt 'plug' is in the rifle slot. A great example of a long etched bayonet.

LONG SINGLE ETCHED DRESS BAYONET WITH FROG AND PORTEPEE.Whilst this dress bayonet does not actually have a maker on the reverse of the blade, there is a little 'S' stamped into the metal ?. Actually the 'In Memory of my Service time' etch, is very distinctive and was used only on the Paul Seilheimer bayonets. A pictures of this exact etch and bayonet is shown on page 204 of Wayne Techet's bayonet book. The etch consists of a central panel with the 'Memory of my Service Time' in two lines, it is bordered by oak leaves at each end as well as an eagle and swastika with outstretched wings on the left and a Wehrmacht helmet on the right. This bayonet was designed for the Heer/Army. Bayonet is in lovely condition. Rifle slot has the red felt insert. Brown/black leather frog with green/silver portepee.

EARLY , LONG FIREMANS DRESS BAYONET WITH 25 YEARS SERVICE ETCH.I have had very few of these over the years, and I don't know why there were not more done. However, this is a very simple etch done on a non maker marked Fireman's Dress bayonet. The bayonet itself is an early piece as the quillion and hilt are all made of steel and nickel plated. The grip plates look to be early Bakelite with steel rivets holding them on. Scabbard is a standard long black painted steel, and there is a original patent leather parade frog in good condition. The blade is nickel plated with a long single fuller and nicely etched into the surface within a panel, is 'For 25 years True service'. It is executed with perfect workmanship, no blurred letters or wavy etched lines. I had a long look at this before I bought it, as I have seen bad reproductions, but this seemed to pass all of my tests. It quite deep into the surface, but above all, is crystal clear and of high workmanship. Etched Firemans bayonets just do not turn up! There is no maker to the reverse , just a nice plain blade!

PERHAPS THE RAREST THIRD REICH MINIATURE-ALCOSO DE-LUXE HUNTING CUTLASS.Many of you will know I have collected miniature daggers for many years. Third Reich miniatures were produced in great quantity, but the best ones were made by the Alcoso firm. They made a Luftwaffe sword, an army dagger, a 2nd Luftwaffe a navy dagger and this one, an exact miniature of their De-Luxe Hunting cutlass. All their miniatures were in superb detail and could be taken apart like the full sized pieces. The navy dagger and the Hunting Ass. cutlass are the rarest of them all and hardly ever turn up. This example is lovely in every way. It has antique silver fittings, with a real stag grip. The clamshell depicts reclining stags and the bottom chape is heavily cast with a standing stag in a forest. The scabbard body is covered with beautiful green leather with twin accent lines. The blade is a work of art. Double etched with scenes of reclining and standing deer in amongst foliage. 100% perfect detail, beautifully executed. The ALCOSO trade mark of scales and Solingen is etched to the reverse riccasso. Dagger measures 23cm overall, about 9" overall. An absolutely fantastic miniature and only the 4th I have owned in 30+ years.
