UNUSUAL CARVING SET WITH ARMY DAGGER GRIPS.This is always an interesting hobby and you never know what you will come across next! I am not sure if this set is war-time or just post-war, I suspect the latter, as Solingen companies were ingenious in using up the dagger spare parts! This is two parts of a carving set, and consists of the fork and the sharpening part or 'steel'. There would have been a carving knife too, but that's missing. However, each one, as you can see has been beautifully made with an orange army dagger grip as the handle of each implement! Both from the SAME set as the workmanship and parts are identical. The 'steel' sharpens the knife and the fork would have been there to dish out the roast dinner! Both army grips have been professionally fitted to the fork and steel and the end of the handle has an army ferrell with a silver finishing top. A great conversation item, an interesting display piece, or if you are after a couple of perfect orange army grips, then take them apart. Spare army grips sell for £40+ each, and I am asking less than that for the two items.
SUPERB (HOLLER) SENIOR FORESTRY CUTLASS WITH EAGLE/SWAZ IN FERREL. This is a wonderful example of the gilded alloy Forestry cutlass with the cast eagle and swastika in the ferrel. Although this one is not marked on the blade it is DEFINATELY a FW Holler piece. I have had them before and I checked in a copy of their original sales catalogue. On page 19, this exact cutlass is pictured. Identical in every way, even to the exact type of blade etch. It’s designated as No.34 and is a ‘fein ziseilierter Hirschfanger mit Hoheitszeichen, fur Oberforester’ basically translates ' finely chased hunting knife with national emblem for senior foresters'. Dagger is in great condition and is COMPLETE with the proper bullion and green forestry portepee and the correct ‘V’ suspension frog. White celluloid grips with 3 gilded acorns each side. The eagle and swastika is cast into the ferrel. The gilding has rubbed off the the eagle a little where the the movement of the portepee has touched it, revealing the aluminium underneath. Nice dark brown leather scabbard. Green frog. Blade is stone mint and has Forest and Hunting scenes on both sides. Matches the picture in the Holler catalogue (copy of page will be provided) This is a rare and highly desirable Forestry cutlass.

RED CROSS OFFICERS DAGGER COMPLETE! HANGERS AND KNOT.A favourite dagger of mine, especially when complete with the correct knot and hangers. Dagger itself is in near perfect condition with a lovely yellow grip and 99% of the bright nickel plating over all of the metal surfaces. Blade is a stiletto type with central spine. It is in near mint condition, with just one small lightfinger smudge. No sharpening or nicks. Original leather blade buffer. Red Cross daggers both officers and mans never have a makers mark. Tied around the grip in the ‘Red Cross fashion’ is a nice 42cm bullion knot. Attached to the scabbard rings are a near mint set of Red Cross hangers. These are in mouse grey with plain oval buckles etc Twin red lines running the length of the hangers and perfect mouse grey velvet backings. Thus is a REALLY nice complete rig. Would be difficult to upgrade.

WEHRMACHT 2nd TYPE MARKMANSHIP LANYARD. INTRODUCED IN 1938 (?) TO REPLACE THE EARLIER SLIGHTLY PLAINER TYPE, THIS HAS A MUCH BOLDER DESIGN WITH CROSSED SWORDS SUMMONTED BY THE ARMY TYPE EAGLE. THICK BULLION WEAVE AND BACKED WITH SILK to stop it rubbing on the uniform. This has been used and worn. A nice example and would display well with any collection.
EARLY, LONG HUNTING ASSOCIATION DAGGER BY EICKHORN IN MINT CONDITIONThis is an absolutely stunning Hunting Association dagger, one of the best I have ever handled, condition wise. This is a quality dagger by Eickhorn and carries the early oval trademark stamped into the riccasso. This dates it from around 1933-1935! All fittings are in antique silver and are in perfect, uncleaned condition. There is a choice piece of stag as the grip, with a lovely silver Hunting Association (Deutche Jagershaft) grip badge. The scabbard is covered in deep green Moroccan leather and again is in perfect condition. Both upper and lower scabbard fittings have matching numbers under the staples. The dagger measures 20" overall with a 13 " blade. The blade is absolutely stunning. Totally MINT! The nickel plated surface is in total contrast to the beautifully etched Hunting scenes running up and down the blade. These are crystal clear and have 100% of the dark background. Pictured in the Eickhorn catalogue, this is listed as item 1692. A wonderful dagger!!
GREAT POLICE OFFICERS SWORD + KNOT BY HERM. RATH.Not a common maker of Police Swords, and they had their own unique blade marking which incorporate the SS runes mark, and this is deeply stamped into the blade riccasso. Making this very desirable, as they were approved by the SS to make swords (Herm Rather also made SS Officers swords, but they are VERY rare!) This is a nicely preserved, quality sword with heavily nickel plated fittings over a steel base. There is very little wear to the silver fittings, and the plating is very bright. Black solid wood grip with large police eagle set into the grip. The eagle is a dull brass colour as the flask coating of silver has worn off over the years. The silver grip wire running around the grip is intact, and the backstrap retains most of the original plating. Tied in the correct manner around the hilt, is a leather Police officer sword knot with red and silver lines running the length of the straps. Scabbard is as straight as a die, has 99% of the original black paint and both upper and lower scabbard fittings have their plating. Herm Rath swords DID NOT have the little SS runes stamped underneath the crossguard or on the top scabbard throat. As I mentioned the SS runes are stamped with their trade name on the blade. By the time this sword was made, the Police was under the command of the SS, so many pieces of equipment etc are SS/Police marked. It's quite common for a Police Officers sword to carry a SS bullion sword knot, if they were with or working with the SS. The blade is approx. " long, in excellent condition and finished in the normal slightly dull polish. Overall dimensions of the sword are "

RED CROSS OFFICERS DAGGER- ORANGE GRIP. This is a good looking Red Cross Officers dagger as the nickel plated fittings have gathered some patina and contrast well with the orange grip. No evidence of plate lifting anywhere. This dagger has never been apart, and no one has tried to take it apart as the unique pommel nut/screw is untouched. The scabbard has plain bands but the hanger suspension holes are ROUND. For years the differences between the square holes and round holes have been attributed to one being Red Cross the other being Social Welfare. In my opinion this is complete rubbish! Such a small, subtle difference would not differentiate between the two. The difference is purely down to alternative designs from different manufacturers-nothing more. It's the HANGERS that distinguish between the two services. RED Cross hangers have the oval buckles and red lines in the cloth. SOCIAL WELFARE have rectangular buckles and grey weave hangers. Simple! The rest of this dagger is nice, with a very clean blade, no damage and all of the plating intact. Seems to be no dents or damage to the scabbard body either. A good, solid, RED CROSS/SOCIAL WELFARE dress dagger.

SS '33 MAN'S DAGGER BY J. A. Schmidt & Sohne - 1939This is a decent example of a quite rare maker. I cannot remember having a dagger by Schmidt & Sonne before and I certainly can't remember the extra long RZM numbers and codes. This was produced in 1939 when the RZM were fully in control of production and inspection. This dagger has the grey alloy nickel plated crossguards which show a little plate lifting here and there. The black grip is perfect, with a perfect SS runes button and a bright aluminium grip eagle. The scabbard has nickel plated steel fittings, which again show a little wear. The scabbard body is painted black, but seems to be an old re-paint. It's not bad, but could possibly benefit from doing it again. They were painted anyway, so no harm there. The blade is FANTASTIC! It has all of the original factory crossgrain polish and the blackening in the motto letters and RZM codes. On the reverse the riccasso has a large RZM circle, then underneath M7/95. Underneath that is the RZM contract code RZM 1222/39 SS. J. A. Schmidt & Sohne.(JA Schmidt are based in Solingen and are still in business today-they make cutlery under the name of DRIETURM). This is a decent SS dagger, a rare maker, and priced accordingly.
ALL ALUMINIUM 1st LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY TIGER.A nice example of the 1st Pattn Luftwaffe dagger made in the ‘new metal’ aluminium. It seems most companies who made the 1st Luft dagger had a version in aluminium. This one is made by TIGER and has the name and little Tiger logo stamped into the blade. The aluminium versions didn’t age or become dull as they don’t oxidise and attract patina, so they almost look as bright today as they did in 1936! This one has 100% gilding to all 4 of the hilt and pommel swastikas. There is a very slight dent to the top edge of the pommel where I imagine the dagger has been dropped once. Nice dark blue grip leather and scabbard leather. No real damage, just some age scuffs. Chain is also aluminium and has a nice OLC marked clip. Blade is a nickel plated type and is in near mint condition. A nice dagger.
