LUFTWAFFE FIGHTING KNIFE. MARKED '5'.I continue to find decent examples of these and people seem to like them! This is another original example of the Luftwaffe fighting/boot knife in good used condition. Official name-'Kampfmesser der Wehrmacht Luftwaffe'. The blade seems to be slightly shorter than normal, so I think it has been re-tipped at some point, quite a common occurrence with fighting knives. Nice wood grips with the three steel rivets. No damage or cracks to the wood. Scabbard is really nice and has all the original black paint with just some age spidering and pimples, but no paint missing. The tree pronged boot clip is nice and tight. The blade is stamped on the riccasso with the 'stick bird' waffanampt and '5'. A very decent example and priced right according to the slightly shorter blade.
HUNTING ASSOCIATION GREEN FROG AND BELT HANGER! EXTREMELY RARE.This is one of the rarest and most difficult accessories to find. A perfect GREEN leather frog and belt loop clip for the Third Reich Hunting Association dagger/cutlass. Made to fit the 'Hirschfanger' by sliding up the scabbard and sitting underneath the acorn fixing on the scabbard body. This is not for the Forestry pieces as the leather is green. It has the MATCHING belt loop with snap clip in the same green leather. The snap clip is Assmann and DRGM marked on the reverse. I cannot remember having such a nice matching set, and if you have a Hunting Association dagger missing this hanger, now id your one and only chance to complete it! Perfect condition, lovely colour to the leather. FANTASTIC.
MATCHED PAIR OF HANGERS FOR NAVAL ADMINISTRATION.The administration side of the German navy has always had silver insignia. That incudes, belt buckles, cap badges etc. The dagger they carried were the SAME as the rest of the navy, brass coloured daggers!! However, the hangers had silver buckles and clips to match the rest of the uniform. These are a very decent set of silver washed aluminium hangers. They area matched pair and the buckles match on the front and reverse. The rear of the buckles are cast with a small M inside a diamond. The moire fabric is perfect and the reverse has dark blue velvet backing. A nice set. Very reasonably priced.
VERY RARE UNISSUED ORIGINAL BULLION KNOT FOR THE THIRD REICH NAVAL SWORD!I am sure not many people know this, but there were TWO types of bullion knots used on Third Reich naval edged weapons. The dagger knot was 42cm long and had a normal sized ball etc. The SWORD knot had a much larger ball, thicker bullion cords and was 44cm + long. I cannot find a reference to this in any book, and it's only through seeing them tied to the swords or daggers, and then handling the knots themselves, that the difference is apparent. The SWORD knot needed to be bigger and longer to look right and tie correctly on the sword hilt. The smaller, shorter dagger knot would just not go around the hilt of the navy sword properly. There is a very complicated way to tie the knot properly on a navy sword, and it could only be done with this length of knot. This knot and the other dagger knot, were both found together on a market stall in Germany. Like the other one, it just shows age/dust from storage, but otherwise is in totally mint condition. Still tied with the original packing string. Like the dagger knot, the infill of the lower ball has the 'puckered' or 'cats anus' finish. All navy sword knots I have ever seen have this, with no exception. This is a VERY rare knot to find on it's own. Would be a shame to undo it, but really needs to be on or by a MINT navy sword. Fantastic piece of history here. I don't think I will ever find another like this.
MINT-UNISSUED ORIGINAL THIRD RICH NAVY DAGGER KNOT!Apart from a little storage dust and some discoloration at one end where exposed to light, this is a totally MINT, unissued Third Reich navy dagger 42cm bullion knot. Recently acquired on a market in Germany, this has been 'resting' in a store room somewhere. This is a TRUE navy dagger knot as it has the 'puckered' end infill to the ball.(which is quite small) 99.99% of navy daggers with original knots have this feature. I have no idea why!! Knot is tied with original packing cotton/string. I cannot say any more about it, just lovely. See also mint navy SWORD knot listed separately.
BEAUTIFUL SET OF THIRD REICH ERA GILDED ALUMINIUM NAVY HANGERS.These are an absolutely 'cracking' set of MINT navy hangers. They are the gilded aluminium types and would have been used in the zenith of the Third Reich period. In mint condition, so I doubt these were ever issued. Gilding is deep gold and 100% intact. The black moire fabric is perfect and still quite stiff. the reverse is backed with dark blue velvet. Only sign of age is on the steel eyelets on the fabric where the buckles go through. There is some slight surface rust showing. These are nearly 70 years old!!! A great set to go with a very nice/mint navy dagger.
GOOD EXAMPLE OF HITLER YOUTH KNIFE. (NO MOTTO)A very decent example of a HJ boys knife by Robert Klaas-Solingen. Has the twin stork trademark deeply stamped into the blade riccasso. Of heavy construction and in very good overall condition. Has 90% of the original plating to the hilt. Grip plates are perfect with no cracks. HJ diamond inset into grip. Enamel and swastika are fine, with nothing missing, but a tiny bit of 'bruising' to the surface. Scabbard has had an old re-paint, but looks excellent. There are a couple of 'digs' to the lower edge on one side. The leather belt loop and snap clip are fine and work well. The blade is in near mint condition and very bright with the original finish. Has not been sharpened or damaged. No motto on the blade as this was produced after 1938 when for some reason they stopped putting it on. Good looking dagger.
SET OF EARLY ALL BRASS TYPE, KREIGSMARINE DAGGER STRAPS-RARE.I am always being asked for 'brass navy straps' and they are very hard to find! Here is a nice matched set. Solid cast brass navy hangers were used in the Imperial era and right up to the mid-1930's. After that gilded aluminium or metal alloy took over as the component of these straps. These are a very nice set of early 1930's straps, and would go perfectly with any Weimar or early Third Reich naval dagger. They are a true, matched set, with the same lion's head buckles and the same casting marks on the reverse. They have seen use and there are a few carrying wear spots just on the edges. The black moire material is excellent, as is the dark blue velvet backing. A very nice set to go with that early dagger. Very difficult to find!

ORIGINAL, UNISSUED 42cm BULLION KNOT, STILL IN CELLULOID PACKET!Some years ago a wartime stock of these knots was uncovered and were released onto the collectors market. They all disappeared instantly. Recently acquired from a collector in Germany, this is a similar knot. They were all originally wrapped in thin see-through 'plastic bags'. Actually celluloid wrap. this has amazingly still survived and is wrapped around the unissued knot inside. The knot is in MINT condition and still tied together with cotton. the celluloid bag is also complete and un-torn, it has just taken on the shape of the knot. A fantastic piece of 'new/old stock and is completely original, now70 years old. Great to display with a similar un-issued dagger.

EARLY SA SHORT LEATHER DAGGER HANGER-COMPLETE.Another short leather hanger for the early SA dagger. Again not suitable for the RZM types. Brown leather is a little dry ans has a couple of surface cracks, however it is still completely sound and will go on a dagger nicely. All nickel fittings, buckle and snap clip are quite heavily patina'd, could be cleaned to a shine or left as they are.
