NAVY DAGGER BY HOLLER, WITH SAILING SHIP BLADE, HAMMERED SCABBARD AND KNOT.A great looking dagger, with most things people are looking for. FW Holler made an excellent dagger and the only blade etch they offered was the sailing ship one!!! All brass fittings throughout show a great deal of the fire gilt finish. There is an original to the piece, bullion silver 42cm knot, tied in the correct tie. Has some carrying wear to the top around the pommel and a little in the swing area. Cream celluloid grip is wrapped with the Holler distinctive 'springy wire'. Scabbard is HAMMERED, which was an extra cost option. It has near 100% fire gilt finish, but unfortunately, the original wearer was a little careless and has dented the scabbard in a couple of places, by catching it in door jams or similar. Blade is in very good condition. The blade etches on Holler daggers are not very 'bold' (unlike Eickhorn ones) so whist all the detail is there and VERY clear, it's not as prominent as other makers typical Holler! Blade has no damage or nicks, has needle sharp point. A great looking dagger, priced accordingly for the reasons mentioned above.

VERY INTERESTING NAVY DAGGER WITH EARLY WKC TRADEMARK. + KNOT ETC.This is a very nice looking dagger and is complete with the ORIGINAL bullion 42cm knot, tied in the navy fashion. A little frayed and worn but original to the piece. Whilst this dagger has a standard plain, unetched blade, it does have a very early WKC trademark stamped into the riccasso. The whole dagger has the obvious WKC tell-tale indications, unique scabbard bands, WKC pommel etc. However, the blade is a little more interesting. It's an early dagger, so the blade reflects this too. The balde itself is slightly thinner that normal (early trait) and the stamped WKC trademark is JUST the Knights Head, no WKC letters. Like many manufacturers, their trademarks changed throughout the length of production. Eickhorn has about 4 different styles from early 1930's until late 1942, so did Alcoso. WKC did not put the WKC letters on earlier blades, but did on later Third Reich pieces. All brass parts are in very good order and look fine and have a nice colour. Cream celluloid grip is perfect and has brass twisted wire in place. Crossguard is typical WKC and the blade release button works perfectly. Scabbard is in very good order. Blade is very nice and bright, with needle sharp point. A seldom encountered, earlt WKC dagger with plain blade.

STANDARD THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER WITH UNMARKED PLAIN BLADE.A good looking example of the navy dagger that would have been purchased or issued 'off the shelf' and as they came. All ranks of the Third Reich navy from Petty Officer upwards were entitled to wear the ceremonial navy dagger. It was a considerable expense, and obligatory for parade purposes. Some officers could not or did not want to afford them, and therefore navy quartermasters kept some for issue. They only purchased the basic dagger, and these came with plain blades. An etched blade was EXTRA money, so if you didn't want to spend the extra money, they came like this. I am not sure who the maker is of this dagger as I cannot recognise the fittings. It's not WKC or Eickhorn, and the grip has twisted 'springy wire' like Holler used, but it's not a Holler either! Anyway, all brass fittings are in good polished condition. Scabbard is in decent shape with no dents or damage. Blade is a standard twin fullered navy type, nickel plated and in great condition. The original red felt blade buffer is in place. Blade release button works perfectly, but is a little stiff. Normal cream celluloid grip has the wire wrap, there is a small crack in the grip at the very top on one side of the pommel, no material missing, and would cover with a knot, if one was there. Other than that, a decent navy dagger, and not expensive.

THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER WITH KNOT-LATER EICKHORN.This is a very nice example of the classic Third Reich naval dagger by the Eickhorn firm. Eickhorn were by far the most prolific producer of these daggers, and I must encounter a 5/1 ratio on all the naval dagger I buy or see. This is a super example with the original 42cm bullion knot tied in the 'navy style knot'. Has never been off! Knot is a little worn/frayed where it comes through the final crossguard tie, and therefore swings a lot, but it's completely sound. All brass fittings are in excellent shape and most have the remains of the gilded finish. Scabbard is very bright and clean and also has much evidence of the gilding process. There are a couple of very slight surface dents on one edge, near the second scabbard band. Other than that, perfect. The grip is celluloid over wood, has no cracks or damage. Thin brass grip wire is fine. Blade is marked with the STAMPED Eickhorn trademark for the 1941+ period. It's a more simplified squirrel looking over it's shoulder. Blade has perfect double etches running down both sides of the nickel plated blade. Etches are crystal clear and have all grey background. A very nice example.

SHORT OFFICERS ALUMINIUM THIRD REICH POLICE BAYONET WITH STEEL SCABBARD.I have mentioned before that the subject of collecting German police bayonets is almost a specialist subject on their own. The variations and types are huge, starting in the Weimar period, PSS bayonets and then all the many different types issued and utilised during the Third Reich era. This is a great example. This is a short, all aluminium hilted Police Officers dress bayonet. Hilt and crossguard are much smaller that a normal police bayonet. Grip looks to be nice stag plates, but on closer inspection they are cleverly carved hardwood. The is a nice police eagle attached to the grip. Blade is a standard shorter single sided type, nickel plated. There is a small, stamped makers mark of Karl Julius Krebs. An unusual maker for Police bayonets. Blade is in good condition with no damage or nicks. Leather buffer washer is in place. Scabbard is also interesting in that it complies exactly with the look of a normal police scabbard, but the main body is not leather, it's black painted metal. The upper scabbard fitting with the frog lug is attached by 2 side screws, however the lower scabbard fitting is attached with a nickel staple, as if it was on a leather scabbard!! Nice touch. A good looking police bayonet, and definitely another alternative variation. Measures 15.75" overall, with a 9.75" blade
LUFTWAFFE FORESTRY BAYONET WITH BROWN FROG.These are one of the RAREST of edged weapons emanating from the Luftwaffe in WW2. Luftwaffe Forestry “Waffen-Loesche Berlin" bayonet.(this was a distributor in Berlin.) Apparently worn by a select number of Luftwaffe personnel attached to Forestry duties. Stag grips are retained by 3 nickel screws and bolts. Oval steel crossguard. Black painted, bayonet style scabbard with lug. There is an original dark brown leather frog, dated 1939 on reverse with maker mark. Blade is the carbine style with false edge. It is nickel plated and not been sharpened. there are a few age spots, but basically blade is in near perfect condition. Spine of blade is stamped with letter 'H'. Reverse of balde is also stamped with the makers name Ch. which was Chromalit. Super bayonets, very hard to find and missing from many collections.
MINIATURE 1890 IMPERIAL NAVAL DAGGER-BEAUTIFUL.A stunning miniature , purchased with the little Luftwaffe sword just listed. Measures approx. 19cm or 7.5" overall, it has fantastic detail. All metal parts are cast brass and include the open crown pommel and capstan crossguard, just like the big versions. The scabbard is dent free and has lightening bolt engraving with figure of eight scabbard bands. Blade is a beautiful nickel plated stiletto type. Has been loved and looked after, not worn or used for letter opening! A really great little miniature. Not many 'small' daggers were produced in the Imperial times, mainly bayonets and these little Imperial things.
SUPERB MINIATURE LUFTWAFFE SWORD BY ALCOSO.I was really pleased to acquire this miniature Luftwaffe sword yesterday. It's a stunning example of the very high quality product produced by the ALCOSO firm. Many of you know I collected miniatures for many, many years. I still have that collection. The Luftwaffe sword was always one of my favourites-still is! Alcoso were the master of miniatures, and their 9" daggers are beautiful in detail and quality. This one has stunning perfect leather to the grip and the scabbard, the twin gip wire is 100% intact. The dagger has 95% of the original nickle/silver plated finish to the pommel, crossguard and scabbard fittings. The blade is STOME MINT, and has never been used to open letters etc. No wear at all. Alcoso made these miniatures for many years, right from the mid-1930's until around 1942 or so. Therefore the trademark on these little chaps changes with time, just like the big versions. This one has the very early, open in big letter ALCOSO with scales. Later ones carried different styles of trademarks, including the sideways 'Alcosa' type in script. A VERY nice little miniature indeed.
BEAUTIFUL 'GOLD' THIRD REICH NAVY KNOT-RAYON.Navy dagger knots are really hard to find, they are unique in their length and the fat they have a 'cats anus' style of closing the bottom of the ball. I am always asked for a GOLD knot for my navy dagger. They really did not exist, usually all of the ones you see have aged gracefully and have picked up patina or pollution, like nicotine stains, and end up looking gold. They also used RAYON as a material for these knots, which is an early form of synthetic material. The rayon knots go very 'golden' very easily, and this is a great example of that. You can see where it has been tied on a navy dagger and some of the cord is slightly lighter in places, however, the vast majority has toned to a burn gold, dusky colour, and would certainly look fantastic tied back on a navy dagger. No fraying, no wear at all. A great knot.

SILVER/BLACK BULLION KNOT FOR BAHNSHUTZ DAGGERThis is a great and rare knot. Use for the Third Reich 2nd Pattn.Bahnshutz dagger. It's a 42cm knot and consisits of silver bullion tread with interspersed black flecks all along the length. The stem is woven with a 'v' shape black lines. The bottom of the ball has a black velvet infill. The ball od the knot is in standard silver bullion. Evidence it has been on a dagger as it's still tied in the army fashion.
