INTERESTING LUFTWAFFE SWORD BY WKC - COMPLETE WITH HANGER.This is a very decent Luftwaffe Officers parade sword, and is complete with the crescent leather hanger. I say 'interesting' as the construction is between two periods. All early Luftwaffe swords were solid nickel, and of course the all aluminium swords are quite common too. However, there is a sword made of a combination of both. Nickel plated over alloy/aluminium and this is one of those! It's as light as the aluminium ones, but with the nickel plating it looks like an early sword. A few manufacturers did this, but in my experience WKC seem to be the most commonly encountered. Sword is quite long and the leather on both the scabbard and grip is in great condition. It's a nice lighter blue colour and there is no major wear or damage to the surfaces. The sword hilt has a few spots where the nickel plating is lifting from the alloy beneath, but not serious. The swastika discs in the crossguard and pommel are in a brass/copper colour. The top scabbard fitting has the original blue leather crescent hanger attached, which again is in good condition and the leather is the same colour as elsewhere. The blade is a normal Luftwaffe sword type, nickel plated with a single fuller running the length. Blade is actually really nice and bright, but there is one small portion, right beside the WKC knight's head trademark, where water has rested against the surface and has pitted it. The WKC trademark is still very visible and deeply etched into the surface. Nonetheless, this is a nice looking, complete sword, and I have priced it competitively.

NICE, COMPLETE RED CROSS MANS SAWBACK HEWER + FROG.This is a very good looking Red Cross mans dagger complete with the ORIGINAL frog. Not in stone mint condition, but in really nice 'used' condition. The nickel plating in perhaps 85% left on all the hilt parts. Perfect set of chequered grips. Scabbard paint is completely original and 90% intact. Bottom scabbard fitting has lost most of the original plating. The original leather frog is marked on the reverse with makers name 'Paul Klopfer-Berlin and dated 1938. The Klopfer firm were a prolific accessory leather maker for the military etc. These frogs are unique to the Red Cross dagger, nothing else fits them properly. They were all issued WITH a frog, as they could not be worn any other way! The blade is beautiful! Absolutely mint, with all crossgrain polish and sawback teeth in razor sharp condition. Red Cross daggers, both men's and officers, never had a maker on the blade, but sometimes there is a distributor. All the men's sawback blades are marked/stamped 'Ges Geschutz' (basically shortened German work for patent pending) This is stamped on this blade underneath the front crossguard overhang. A very decent dagger.

NAVY DAGGER 42cm BULLION KNOT.I keep my eyes open for the accessories and here is a nice condition-but used-42cm silver bullion dagger knot, suitable for the Third Reich navy dress dagger. In 99% of all of the navy daggers I have had complete with a knot tied in place, they are like this. The lower 'ball' has a finish in puckered or a swirl of small silver bullion. Tom Wittmann calls it a 'cats anus' finish. My theory is that near the major German naval ports, Kiel, Hamburg and Wilhelmshaven, there was a accessory factory or two. The knots they produced and which were sold to the naval outlets, where just made like this, with the puckered finished end. Anyway, that's just my theory, as I cannot imagine that such a small difference in the knots, meant it was exclusively for navy daggers. However, I may be wrong, as I have never seen one of these on an arm dagger, for instance. Irrespective, these go on navy daggers, and this is a good example. Bullion cord is fine with a bit of discoloration and some slight wear, but no fraying. It has been on a dagger or something, as there are some existing folds in the cord. However, this will tie perfectly onto a navy dagger and look great. Hard to find!!!!!
UNISSUED THIRD REICH NSDAP GILT BUCKLE AND GILT 'D' RINGS IN PACKET.Survived all these years as 'unissued' stock, here is a NSDAP gilded officers claw belt buckle complete with the paper RZM label still attached. Would have gone on an officers brown leather belt. Gilding is still 99% mint with one small area of corrosion on the reverse. Buckle is stamped in tiny letters RZM M5/71. This was for Overhoff and Cie..Ludenscheid. They made many metal uniform accessories. Along with the buckle are an unopened packet of NSDAP gilded 'D' rings. There are 12 in the packet. It is slightly split open on the reverse so you can see inside at the 'D' rings! Otherwise completely mint and unissued. A great talking point. Both new 'old' stock, saved for 70+ years.

NSDAP/PARTY STANDARD ARMBAND-UNUSED.This is the archetypal German armband, worn by most political party members. They came in a variety of materials and construction. From wool, three piece types to cheap, mass produced printed varieties. This is a very good example of a 3 piece all wool construction and it has never been on a tunic and still retains the original RZM issue paper label. No moth nips or holes to the red wool backing. White ribbed material circle and black moire strips that make the swastika, then machine sewn onto the wool band. The is a makers large stamp to the wool body. Initials are 'CFD' in a circle. Never been stitched together to make an actual armband so the ends are both open. In great condition. Ideal for displaying with SA daggers or similar.

STONE MINT MINIATURE ARMY DAGGER- WUSTOFF MAKER!!!This is an absolutely stunning 7 1/2" miniature dagger. Not sure where it's been for the past 80 years, but certainly looked after! It has ALL of the original frosted finish over the silver plating on all the metal surfaces. The grip is a beautiful lemon yellow colour celluloid. Blade is a highly plated nickel finish and is MINT. It has the advert for the company 'ALEXANDERWERKE' etched along one side. This company obviously gave these little dagger away as advertising souvenirs, and were quite generous with them, as this is quite a common name to find on this type of dagger. ALEXANDERWERKE made machines for the chemical industry. They are based in Remscheid and are still in business today and STILL USE THE SAME TRADEMARK lettering! (check them on Google!). Anyway, I am sure they would deny everything...........The reverse of this blade is stamped with the tiny trident symbol of the Ed Wusthof company in Solingen. This little dagger was certainly made by Horster (they made all miniatures of the army dagger this size) by probably ordered by Wusthof and them sold to Alexanderwerke. There was a great deal of inter-trading in the Solingen industry. Nevertheless, a really wonderful little miniature, could not be upgraded, unless you find one in a packet!
IMPERIAL GERMAN NAVAL DAGGER BULLION KNOT/PORTEPEE.These are EXTREMELY hard to find now. Used on the 1898 and Officers daggers of the Imperial German navy, they are now over 100 years old and antiques in their own right. This is approximately 42cm in length, is a dull gold in colour with the distinctive black and red flecks, found on all Imperial navy dagger and sword knots. The actual bullion cord is quite thin and delicate and the ball is a small size, compared to Third Reich knots. It has had a small period repair to the cord on one side near the top off the ball and there are a few 'rubbing' scuffs along the bullion cord where it's been used and tied on a dagger at some time. However, as you can see from the pictures, it's actually in very good order overall. This needs to go back on a nice, delicate Imperial navy dagger, with some age to it, as then it would fit in perfectly. I have not had a small Imperial dagger knot like this in years, a couple of sword knots, but not one of these.
FANTASTIC 'GROSSE' SIZE THIRD REICH SWORD KNOT.I really do not get these very often, and I am pretty sure these were only on special swords, or worn on HIGH RANKING Wehrmacht Officers (Colonel/General) etc. It's a fabulous sword knot 1/3 bigger in every respect than a standard green leather type. The strap itself is much wider and has 3 silver bullion lines running the length of the green leather straps. The ball is HUGE and dwarfs the standard size (I have shown a picture comparing the two). This beautiful knot is in mint condition. Again it has been on a sword, but not for very long! Green leather is in supple, mint condition. If you have that Extra Special Third Reich parade sword and need a knot for it, then this is it!! Imperial Germany had some Grosse hilted swords, but Third Reich didn't. All were same size. But a mint condition RARE parade sword would suit this perfectly. Rare knot!
SWORD PORTAPEE/KNOT IN GREEN LEATHER-NEAR MINT.This is the standard, smaller sword knot worn with ALL Third Reich Wehrmacht parade swords. In beautiful condition, this knot has been on a sword and remains in a 'ghost' tie! So would be easy to slip back on a lions hear of dove head sword. It's in remarkable, mint condition. Perfect green leather and twin bullion wires running the length. Nice bullion acorn ball.

THIRD REICH FORESTRY BULLION SILVER/GREEN DAGGER PORTAPEE.This is quite a rare knot, and missing from more Forestry daggers. This was for the Senior Officials Forestry cutlass. The one with the cream celluloid or ivory grips. It was tied around the hilt in the same fashion as a sword knot. Consists of flat weave silver bullion straps with two thin green stripes running the length. A very pretty knot and does wonders to a Forestry cutlass when you put it on. Silver bullion ball with green coloured stuffing in the ball 'end'. Has been on a cutlass, but shows no wear or fraying. Nice, original knot.
