SS NCO'S PARADE SWORD WITH MARKINGS TO 'GERMANIA' REGIMENT.SS pieces with ANY personalised markings are really rare. I have had a few SS daggers, with initials and sometimes a last name, but I have never had a SS sword with a divisional marking. The sword is a very nice NCO's, type with nickel fittings. The SS runes on these swords are cast into the top of the pommel. The grip does not have grip wire and is a plain black ribbed wood type. Blade is quite a long, straight edged standard blade, with the slightly dull finish. Underneath the crossguard and on the top of the scabbard fitting are stamped the SS inspection marks or 'Kulturzeichen'. Scabbard is in good condition has most of the original black paint and nickel top mount. There is no lower mount on NCO's swords, just an integral steel drag. Engraved into the riccasso of the blade and again copied exactly on the throat of the scabbard, are the following markings...I / SS G then 19....this is for the FIRST Battalion SS Germania. The 19would be attributed to this sword for issue purposes, probably from the quartermasters etc. Really neat markings, a little crude, but definitely depot done. This sword has no maker to the blade, quite common with SS Officer and NCO's swords. There is a very nice white leather blade buffer. A rare opportunity to acquire a uniquely marked sword, there is no other like this!!
TERRIBLY RARE HANGERS FOR THE THIRD REICH FIRE OFFICIALS DAGGER.Commonly mistaken and sometimes sold as Hitler Youth Leaders hangers, these are a MEGA rare set of the black leather hangers for the Third Rich era Fire Officials dagger. This particular dagger did not change much between the Imperial and Third Reich periods, and the Third Rich ones are identified mainly by construction and trademarks. These hangers were made and issued IN THE THIRD REICH PERIOD, and like the HJ Leaders straps have RZM marked clips etc. Hj straps have SMOOTH finish to the surface of the oval buckles, clips and belt clip. Fire Officials straps have a PEBBLED finish. That's the only difference, and hence the confusion sometimes. They are still one of the RAREST set of straps to find, and if you have a nice Third Reich era dagger, these are the straps for you. Black leather straps, have a row of stitching down each side. The pebbled top clip is similar to that of the Hj and RLB types. Reverse is marked with the RZM M5/10 and DRGM. This was made by Wilhelm Deus, Solingen according to the makers lists.The oval buckles and slides still show some of the original gilding that was present on these hangers from new. The lower clips are the pebbled 'push in' types. Leather is very supple with NO problems at all. Some slight wear from age, but nothing else. A really rare opportunity to acquire a really RARE set of hangers.

SHORT THIRD REICH CLAMSHELL POLICE BAYONET.I have described before how the variety of Police bayonets is totally amazing. Right from the Weimar period, then all the changes they did with them, shorter, clamshell, different grip badges. They then morphed into the Third Reich period and even more varieties appeared! This is a beautiful little Police , probably Officers, clamshell bayonet by ALCOSO. It has an original to the piece aluminium police eagle and swastika pinned through the grip, nice stag grip plates. Nickel clamshell with the Prussian bird cast into it. Dark brown leather scabbard with nickel top and bottom scabbard fittings which are both marked under the staples with a number '9'. The bayonet also has additional markings. The number '1' is stamped to the top of the scabbard fitting AND the reverse of the crossguard, matching the bayonet to the scabbard for ever. The bayonet itself is quite short, measuring only 15 " overall, with a 9" blade. It has a decent carbine type plated blade with the Alcoso scales stamped deeply into the surface. There is a brown leather blade buffer. The blade is nickel plated over steel. Near the bottom of the blade the nickel plating has lifted a little in a few small places, but the steel underneath is very bright so it hardly notices. These are rare little bayonets.
A HUGE, SPECTACULAR HUNTING CUTLASS + SKINNING KNIFE BY WKC.I cannot remember owning a Hunting Cutlass this long..ever!! It's over 25" overall length. I have seen them in the WKC catalogue, but not in the flesh. Lovely stag grip with 3 brass acorns as decoration. The brass (gilded) pommel is deeply cast with fine detail of leaves and oak leaves. Crossguard depicts hooves at each end with a running fox (?) in the middle box. The large clamshell depicts deer lying on the ground. Nestled into the top of the scabbard pocket, is the original skinning knife, which has a beautiful little stag handle and plain blade, with brass pommel, like the larger version, but plain. To find a cutlass like this WITH the skinning knife is SO rare. They always go missing. The scabbard has reasonably plain upper and lower brass fittings and the hard, black leather scabbard is in very good overall condition. The blade is another long thing, measures over 18". It's in excellent condition and is deeply etched on both sides with hunting and shooting scenes, typical WKC etch. The WKC Knight's Head trademark is deeply stamped into the riccasso underneath the clamshell. I have pictures a standard navy dagger beside this 'beast' of a cutlass to give you an idea of actual size. A really great piece indeed. HUGE!

LUFTWAFFE SWORD BY SMF - ALL ALUMINIUM WITH GILT SWAS & HANGER.This is a really great looking Luftwaffe sword! Made by SMF, who were big in the Luftwaffe blade business. This is quite a LONG sword, overall length 38" with a 30" blade. Aluminium was a new metal in the 1930's and several companies decided to make daggers and swords from this bright, light, non tarnishing metal. It re-emphasised the connection between aviation etc. The aircraft were made of it, so now were the daggers and swords! Pommel and crossguard have great detail and the gilded swastikas remain 100% intact on all 4 sides. The airplane (Luftwaffe) blue leather on the grip and scabbard has a great colour and very little scuffs or damage. They are in great condition. The integral leather crescent hanger is attached to the scabbard rings. Grip is wrapped with bright, twin 'springy' aluminium wire, again in perfect condition. The blade is heavily nickel plated and is VERY bright and clean. The SMF 'seated King' logo is etched into the blade surface and it is also stamped with the tiny stick eagle Waffanampt. Blade is effectively MINT with mirror like surface, there are a couple of very minor blemishes or old finger marks on one side near the bottom. They are effectively just grey shadows and have not affected the surface at all. Really nice looking Luftwaffe parade sword.

EARLY ALL NICKEL LUFTWAFFE OFFICERS SWORD by the EICKHORN company.A 'fresh to the market' piece, purchased from a family in America. This is a classic, early Luftwaffe sword, uncleaned and untouched. It is complete with the leather crescent hanger, and has gone quite black overall with age and patina. All metal parts are solid nickel. The grip has lovely deep blue leather, and no evidence of damage or scuffs. It is wrapped with twin 'springy' aluminium wire. Scabbard again is covered in lovely dark blue Morroccan leather. There is a small abrasion or tiny surface dent to the scabbard 1/3 of the way down, it looks as though it was caught in a door or similar. It is very slight and hardly noticeable. The rest of the scabbard is fine and in excellent condition. The upper and lower scabbard fittings have toned nearly black with age and patina. The blade is fantastic, has remained in MINT condition after all these years. Nickel plated finish is flawless and there is a great small oval Eickhorn trademark etched into the surface near the crossguard. This style of trademark dates it to around 1935-1936, before the larger squirrel and sword trademark was used. The sword measures 31" overall, with a 28 1/2" blade. A decent length for a Luftwaffe sword, as so many of them were quite short!

EARLY 1st Pattn. RLB OFFICERS DRESS DAGGER.A very uncommon dagger to find, as a great percentage were altered officially to the 2nd Pattn type when it came out a few years later. They are identical in size and shape, but have a different grip badge and another central scabbard fitting.
This is an untouched, early 1st Pattern by Paul Weyersberg. Magnificent Art Deco hilt design, with stylised eagle with out swept straight wings. There are no markings to this dagger apart from the makers mark on the blade.Tom Wittmann has virtually an identical one on his site. Crossguard and scabbard throat completely plain. These daggers have solid metal fittings, probably brass with heavy nickel plating. This dagger has not been cleaned or polished in a very long time, so all the nickel fittings have dark patina. Grip badge features the early 1st type RLB motif, with the RLB letters in blue enamel and a small swastika underneath. Badge is completely original and has been affixed to the grip for 80+ years! The dark blue/black leather covering to the grip AND the scabbard are in lovely condition. Smooth Moroccan leather with hardly any scuffs or damage. Blade is very bright indeed. It's quite well polished, and seems to be the type without crossgraining. Weyersberg polished these blades to a mirror like finish. Makers logo etched into blade surface. Blue leather washer in place. Scabbard has the integral single hanging strap. Leather a little cracked, but still supple and sound. Very decent looking RLB type.
CLASSIC IMPERIAL GERMAN 1898 INFANTRY SWORD.This is a very nice all brass ,earlier type Imperial German 1898 Infantry parade sword in excellent condition. All brass , heavily cast hilt, depicting the Imperial Prussian eagle cast into the knuckle bow. Large fish skin or sharks skin hilt grip is wrapped with 3 silver twisted wires and in the centre, has the Imperial eagle cypher in brass with crown above. Blade is a dead straight thing with deep central groove and nickel plated. The plating has worn a little in a few places and at the tip, but basically is 85% intact. The sword is made by the Weyersburg Company and their early logo of WK&C with side by side Kings heads, appears on the blade langet. Scabbard is dead straight, no damage or dents, still has the original blued surface finish and twin hanging rings. Very nice looking Imperial German sword.

THIRD REICH 'OTHER RANKS' PARADE SWORD + KNOT.Not commonly seen as thy were very plain and uninspiring, they also did not depict any eagle and swastika either. This is a standard, plain issue Other Ranks 'walking out' or parade sword. I am pretty sure the issue and wearing of these was dropped pretty quickly in favour of the standard dress bayonet, but there are many early photographs of enlisted men wearing the dress/parade sword. This is a pretty long sword measuring 41" o/a. Would mean the original owner would have been just under 6' tall. Big in those days. Hilt is a very plain dove head affair, which was nickel plated over steel. Most of this has worn off now. Black celluloid grip has triple brass wires. There is an original enlisted man's portepee wrapped around the hilt. Green with thin silver wires. Shows age commensurate with the sword condition. Blade is nickel plated and 34" long. It's in near perfect condition and is deeply stamped with the maker RICHARD HERDER SOLINGEN. Scabbard is a standard black painted single hanger type, it is missing the throat at the top, but fits perfectly and the runners are still inside. An interesting sword, not in the best of condition externally, but with the mint blade and knot, easily worth the money!

EARLY EICKHORN SWORD WITH OLDER DAMASCUS BLADE.This sword could obviously tell a story if it could talk! On the face of it, it is a nice EARLY all brass hilt model 1693 or WRANGEL (named after Friedrich Heinrich Ernst Graf von Wrangel a Generalfeldmarschall of the Prussian Army). Very good detail and casting, nice celluloid grip with triple wire. The triple wire is NOT aluminium, as appeared on later swords. So this is a very early production WRANGEL. Stamped under crossguard GES GESCH. However, moving onto the blade.......this is a handmade, maidenhair DAMASCUS pipe-backed blade, but is marked with the early Imperial WK & C trademark. Along the blade in one scrolled panel is the word 'EISENHAUER' on the reverse in the same scrolled panel 'DAMASTSTAHL' (DAMASCUS STEEL). I have seen this many times with family or dual service soldiers. He has had the Damascus steel sword he wore in WW1, re0hilted into a Third Reich hilt. It's been perfectly done, and is obviously period. There is an early leather knot tied around the hilt, which again matches the tie this was done, as it not an Imperial knot, but an early Third Reich or Weimar one. Before they use the green leather knots. Unfortunately there is no scabbard with this sword, I never had one with it. The blade is a typical Imperial CURVED type and quite short. Some diligent looking with find an Imperial cheap sword or perhaps a scabbard alone. It really does deserve making complete. A real piece of history and an expensive DAMASCUS blade. Complete, this would be £1000 sword, so a bargain here.
