1936 NSKK OFFICERS CHAINED DAGGER BY EICKHORN.This is a fine, used example of the 1936 chained dagger as worn by the NSKK officers. Introduced at the same time as the SS officers chained dagger and followed similar design traits, with the dagger itself remaining unchanged but the addition of a centre mount on the scabbard and a set of suspension chains consisting of the NSKK eagle design and alternating with a mobile swastika. This particular dagger has been left entirely untouched, and whilst has a little bit of wear here and there, is a 100% text-book example. Later RZM style crossguard are the alloy plated variety and are in great condition with very little plate lifting or damage. The brown hardwood grip is in perfect condition with no damage or cracks. The enamel SA button is fine, and the grip eagle is aluminium and untouched. Scabbard has virtually all of the original factory black paint remaining, a little spidering and some age scratches. All scabbard fittings are again the RZM period being nickel plated steel. The top fitting shows some carrying wear and has lost a little of the plating. Attached to the top and middle fitting is the original NSKK chain. This again shows a little wear here and there, but retains 85% of the nickel plating.The top two links nearest the hanging clip are both stamped. However, the stampings were obviously quite light and age and wear/polishing have made them quite feint. One has the 'NSKK Masterschutz Korpsfuhrung' quite visible, the other is stamped with RZM M5/8, again quite feint, but still there. These two stamped link can appear either at the top of the chain next to the clip, or occasionally at the bottom right next to the dagger itself. Tom Wittmann has an identical dagger to this on his web site, sold @ $2395. Same type and year of manufacture, with the stamped links next to the dagger. Onto the blade...blade is in beautiful shape, with all the original crossgrain polish present. On the reverse the maker is Eickhorn, no trademark but a nice RZM M7/66 1941. A text-book piece, with a little age and character.

RARE-RED CROSS MAN'S DRESS KNOT. BLUE-SILVER BULLION.These are lovely knots and work wrapped around the black frog of the sawback Red Cross man's hewer. They are constructed in exactly the same way as the later SS type knots that are around occasionally, so must have been made by the same people. Knot consists of long flat bullion straps with twin blue lines running down each side. The little slide is platted blue and silver bullion. The stem of the knot is silver bullion. The top of the ball is standard silver wire, whist the bottom part is alternating silver and blue treads. The 'stuffing' in the bottom of the ball is blue material. Whole knot is nicely aged and seems to have been on a dagger at some time.
EARLY EICKHORN SAWBACK OFFICERS SHORT FIRE BAYONET.This is a very nice example of the sawback version of the Third Reich Fire bayonet. This is the short version apparently worn by senior NCO’s and Officers, whist the Linder one was reserved for Firemen if standard rank. It is quite early and is therefore made of quality materials. The hilt is heavily nickel plated over steel base and the checquered grip plates are black hard wood (not celluloid). The blade is in mint condition and is the shirt carbine type with false edge. One side has the razor sharp machined ‘saw-back’ teeth. Scabbard has a full coating of original black paint and the original patent leather black frog is present. The blade has the stamped smaller oval Eickhorn trademark which dates it from 1933-35. Excellent example of the rarely found saw-back bayonet.

8" RARE THIRD REICH NAVY MINIATURE DAGGER.Miniature Third Reich naval daggers are actually really rare. Alcoso made a beautiful bigger size one, which are about £1500 now, if you can find one, and FH Horster made a nice 7.5" version. However, there are others that are not quite such high quality, but nonetheless great little miniatures. Navy miniatures were made in the Imperial period and then into the Weimar era, with flame ball pommels. These usually had no maker and little stiletto type plated blades. These were also made in the Third Reich era, and the pommels were replaced with a tiny eagle and swastika version. This is one of those. Crossguard and pommel are cast brass. The grip is a ribbed section probably made of celluloid or bone. Blade is a plated stiletto type. The scabbard is a standard navy type with lightning body engraving etc., but there scabbard were cast in a period alloy, and not made from brass shells. It was made on a budget and meant to be given away or sold as a souvenir at the time. Dagger is in good condition, has been used as a letter opener I think. The tiny brass eagle pommel has such detail you can easily see the swastika in the wreath! Fun, real miniature. Measures 8" overall.

VERY EARLY LONG BRASS THIRD REICH LION'S HEAD SWORD.This is a fantastic looking sword, and by it's construction and size, I would place this to have been made very early on in the Third Reich era. The whole of the solid brass hilt is much larger than later swords, with incredible casting detail to the huge lion's head, back strap and crossguard. The lion has red glass eyes with detail of the mane flowing back over the knuckle bow. The lower crossguard quillion ends in another lion's head! Grip is black celluloid with grip wire running around. Some of the wire has come loose with some strands missing. The crossguard features and outstretched eagle clutching the swastika. Sword is very long, over 41" in total with a 34 " blade. Blade is in excellent condition with a nickel plated surface, but there is no makers mark. Steel scabbard is in excellent condition with original black paint and no damage to the body. Sword is quitevery heavy, due the size and steel/brass construction. An impressive piece.

RARE AND ELUSIVE LUFTWAFFE FORESTRY BAYONET.This is a premium example of the Luftwaffe Forestry bayonet. A strange sidearm as it's not a bayonet at all, but a knife with a stag grip and carbine type blade, but no means of attaching to a rifle at all! Carried by members of the Luftwaffe divisions, under the command of Goering, who was a huge hunting association/forestry follower. . These 'bayonets' are all identical and all made by the same company.Luftwaffe Forestry contingents. Blade is deeply stamped with the distributor one side WAFFEN-LOESCHE BERLIN. The reverse riccasso is plain on this one (not unusual) but they are made by Anton Wigen Chromolit-Besteckfabrik company. Beautifully shaped stag grips which are held in place with 3 removable bolts. Steel crossguard. Black steel scabbard with 100% black paint. A near mint piece.

MOST INTERESTING PERIOD DAGGER/BAYONET LEATHER HANGER.I have seen hangers like this before, they are meant to slip over a bayonet scabbard or similar. Fantastically well made, definitely factory, not privately made. I have shown it on a bayonet scabbard, just to put it into context. It's one of the smaller carbine type bayonet scabbards, but this is also the same size as the smaller, narrow Police bayonet scabbards. Fits perfectly on each. Consists of the two fixed leather loops that fit either side of the bayonet lug. There is a strog support spine and at the top is a sturdy grip retaining strap. This has an aluminium 'button' that holds it closed. Very similar to the TENO dagger strap button. It even has a little strip of leather to protect the grip from the back of the button! Would look very good on a nice police bayonet or similar.

VERY INTERESTING EARLY HJ DAGGER WITH MOTTO.These continue to be one of the most popular daggers to collect, perhaps because of their history and variety and they are still relatively inexpensive compared to others. Does not make them easier to find though, and decent examples with and without motto, are much harder to find. This is a very good example of a pre-1938 HJ boys knife, WITH motto 'Blut und Ehre'. It's of all steel construction, so quite heavy. The nickel plating over the surfaces is still very good in most places, some slight wear around the grip strap. Chequered grip plates are perfect as is the nice enamel HJ diamond inset into the front grip. Scabbard has the original black paint, not a repaint, it's worn a little in the usual places, but looks very good overall. these were worn and used everyday after all. No dents or damage. The blade has a little period sharpening but no other damage. The Blut und Ehre motto is still quite clear. The blade is stamped on the reverse in the riccasso with RZM M7/37. This is the code allocated to ROBERT KLAAS. however, AND THIS IS WHAT MAKES THIS HJ DAGGER VERY INTERESTING, the blade is also stamped further along with the makers mark E&F HORSTER-SOLINGEN! So TWO different makers on one blade...…why? This is answered in one of Tom Johnson's books when he obtained the paper records from many of the dagger manufacturers in Solingen. It was VERY common practice to trade parts between themselves, scabbards, blades, crossguards etc. Was a pointless exercise trying to stock everything yourselves, the same as it is today. So I imagine Robert Klaas needed to complete a HJ dagger order, and purchased some or all of the blades they didn't have from Horster. A really interesting anomaly on a 200% original dagger.

FANTASTIC 'TRANSITIONAL' SA BY EICKHORN WITH TRIPLE HANGER.A most pleasing dagger indeed! These 'transitional' pieces seem to be very popular with collectors as they are hard to find especially in good condition. This one is lovely! A typical Eickhorn piece in that it is made to very high standards. Perfect wood grip which has a nice SA button and a great nickel eagle (still using up older stock I imagine). Both crossguards and the metal fittings to the scabbard are in wonderful condition, with NO damage or signs of lifting. As this is an RZM period piece, there is no Gau mark on the crossguard. Attached to the scabbard ring is the original 3-piece marching hanger, in the correct colour with RZM marked oval buckle and snap clip. This piece is all the same colour and in my opinion has been on this dagger since it was made. Scabbard body is painted dark brown and remains 100% intact, beautiful coat of factory paint. The blade is a beauty, is 99.99% stone mint and has all the original polishing crossgrain. These are known as 'transitional' as they carry traits of the earlier daggers as well as the later all RZM pieces. The reverse of the blade has the Eickhorn squirrel from the 38-41 period as well as the Eickhorn RZM number M7/66 and the date 1939. Wonderful! A really good example of this type of dagger and would be very difficult to upgrade.
UNTOUCHED EARLY SA ERASED ROHM DAGGER BY EP&S WITH HANGER.I was lucky enough to be contacted recently by a man who's father had bought this dagger back as a souvenir, along with 2 NSDAP armbands and a book of Third Reich postcards. The dagger has remained in his family for the past 70+ years and left entirely alone. The nickel fittings have a nice dull patina on all surfaces. The scabbard has 95% of the original lacquer over the brown anodising. The original short leather hanger is attached to the scabbard ring. The grip is a lovely colour wood and is perfect, along with a the grip eagle and SA button. Lower crossguard has Nm 'Nordmark' Gau markings from the northern part of Germany around Kiel. The blade is most interesting as it once was a full Rohm presentation, so this dates the dagger from around 1933/34 as Hitler had him murdered in June 1934 and all traces of his removed from everywhere! This included the dedication on the SA blades. This one has been 'energetically' done by the original owner and the grinding marks extend right down the back of the blade and even to the tip area, when it's caught the edge of the blade. The obverse of the blade is unaffected and just has some age smudges etc on the surface. The grinding has just touched the top of the EP&S logo, but it's still possible to see a tiny portion of the original dedication etch further down the blade. A good looking piece with history. Competitively priced for a nice early SA with ex Rohm inscription.
