BULLION 42cm KNOT FOR KRIEGSMARINE DRESS DAGGER. A very nice example of the silver aluminium bullion knot, predominantly used on the Kriegsmarine daggers, both Third Reich and Weimar. This seems to have been on a dagger but no fraying or wear marks. Nice thick bullion cords don’t will tie well.
Ball has the ‘puckered’ insert so often (but not always!) associated with navy knots. Nice original accessory.

EARLY UNCLEANED LUFTWAFFE 1st PATTN. ALL NICKEL BY SMF.Still one of my favourite designs, matched by the Luftwaffe sword, which both display this very 'Teutonic' hilt design, with the swept back crossguard and large round pommel. This one has been left alone for many a day! Resulting in a build up of patina all over the nickel surfaces. All the swastikas on the pommel and crossguard have lost the flash coat of silver and are a nice bull brass colour. Leather on the grip and scabbard areas is all original, and is in excellent shape. These is one very small piece of leather missing from the scabbard lower edge, beside the seam. Not noticeable as everything is the same colour. Long solid nickel chains are attached, and these also have toned down with the age patina. Nice nickel belt snap clip. Blades on these SMF piece are always heavily nickel plated, and this is the case here. Blade is in super, near mint condition, with just the usual 'in/out surface scratches. The SMF seated King logo is etched into the riccasso surface, and next to it is a nice stamped Waffenampt 'stick' eagle. A nice example of its type.

WONDERFUL SET OF RED CROSS OFFICERS DAGGER HANGERS. These shouldn’t be as difficult to find as they are, but nice sets are hard to obtain. The hangers for the Red Cross Officer are quite unique and don’t share any components with any other hangers. Fittings are made of lightweight aluminium and the buckles are oval and smooth. The cloth facing fabric has thin twin red lines stitched in parallel lines each side along their length. The reverse are always in a mouse grey velvet. Top clip is again in aluminium and similar to a Luftwaffe one, but much lighter and more delicate. These particular straps are quite long and in great condition. There is one small rust stain on the fabric but absolutely no wear or other damage. A really nice set of hangers to complete your dagger.

A UNIQUE CHANCE TO OBTAIN ONE OF THE RAREST SA DAGGERS AT A FRACTION OF NORMAL RETAIL.I am very pleased to off this SA DAGGER WITH FULL ROHM DEDICATION!. This is made by EP&S who seemed to be one of the more ‘common’ producers of the Rohm dedication. If you have not seen it already, take some time to watch Tom Wittmann’s short seminar on SA and Rohm daggers. You can find the link on his web site, or just look on You Tube. He goes into great detail on the surprisingly different makers who DID produce the Rohm dedication blade. There are a couple of great shots of the EP&S blade, which is identical to this one. The exterior of this early SA (1934) is pretty much in mint condition. All nickel fittings of course. Grip is a lovely piece of hardwood and has definite ‘tiger strips’ to the grain. The nickel eagle and the SA button are in perfect condition. Lower crossguard is Gau marked ‘Sw’ for ‘Sud West’ with capital city as Stuttgart. The beautiful scabbard has all of the brown anodised finish and 100% of the original shellac lacquer. Amazing! Lower scabbard ball is perfect. Attached to the upper scabbard ring is the original short leather hanger with snub nosed nickel clip. Now onto the blade........Beautifully etched into the reverse of the blade is the FULL AND COMPLETE Rohm dedication along with the early EP&S full trademark. The blade is in near mint condition with all the cross grain polish and lovely grey background to all of the lettering in the dedication and trademark. To find a complete dedication is extremely rare, and these daggers have disappeared from the collecting market. All reference to Ernst Rohm was obliterated and destroyed under Hitlers orders, after Hitler had him murdered for treason in 1934. These Rohm blades should have been destroyed or defaced, but some were obviously hidden away and now provide a very rare find for collectors. The obverse of the blade carries the normal 'Alles fur Deutschland' etched motto, and the colour of this exactly matches the Rohm etch on the reverse. All the crossgrain polish remains in the background. At some time this dagger was exposed to slight moisture, probably in the grip and lower crossguard area. This has resulted in a very small patch of the blade becoming pitted. I have shown the area in the pictures. It is approximately a large thumb print in size and has affected that part of the blade surface. It does not extend down to or touch the “Alles” lettering and is completely contained to the upper corner of this blade. This is the only reason why this dagger is priced as such. Without this ‘blemish’ and it is just that, this would be a £4500+ dagger (ever more in the US, where they make $7000-8000). It’s a wonderful dagger at about 50% of its real cost. A great chance to own one of the RAREST Third Reich daggers.
ALCOSO 9” MINIATURE HUNTING ASSOCIATION DAGGER. From the 5 superb miniature daggers, that ONLY Alcoso produced in this size, the Hunting Association version is the second most difficult to obtain. (Navy is the rarest). Alcoso miniatures are absolutely superb and correct in every detail, but only 9” long! Photographed without a scale reference, you would assume they were full sized. Alcoso put the same effort and attention to detail in these products, as they did into the full sized versions. They are even made up of the same component parts, just in miniature! This Hunting Association miniature is a work of art. A beautiful tiny piece of antler stag has been chosen to make the grip. Cut to size it fits perfectly into the upper and lower fittings. The pommel cap is a casting of acorns ( same as the full size) and the pommel nut is in fact a tiny single acorn with screw thread. The crossguard and perfect clamshell are silver plated, with the clamshell depictions perfectly clear of a stag laying down with a doe to each side. Amazing detail! The scabbard has all of the original Morocco green leather covering with upper and lower scabbard fittings. The lower one, the same as it’s full sized cousin, has a perfect depiction of a beautiful standing stag in the forest with a sprig of oak leaves beneath. Again the detail is superb. The miniature 7” blade again mirrors it’s full sized version and is deeply double etched onto a nickel plated surface. Forest scenes with deer and other animals in both panels. The reverse riccasso has tiny Alcoso trademark of the name over the scales. A fantastic miniature and worthy of ANY collection, whether you collect miniatures or not.
EARLY ALL NICKEL 1st Pattn. LUFTWAFFE DAGGER BY KLAAS.Always a favourite dagger with me and with collectors. This is a great example of an early example by Robert Klaas. Looking at the construction it seems to been made around 1935/36. The all nickel pommel and crossguard are in great condition and the brass swastikas still have at least 50% of the original gilt on the surfaces. The blue Morocco leather on the grip and scabbard is in great shape. The triple grip wires on the grip are in perfect condition. Scabbard is in great shape and has all nickel fittings. The solid nickel chains are attached to the scabbard rings by little ‘S’ shaped clips. This is a feature usually found on the long DLV dagger, or the transitional DLV/1st Luft pieces. Nice touch!
The blade is a highly nickel plated type and in near perfect condition, near mint. There is a very small edge ‘nick’ just underneath the crossguard. The remnants of an old hit during a child souvenir fight, or similar. It is very small and hardly noticeable, but mentioned here for note. The Klaas trademark of the twin ‘kissing Cranes’ is stamped into the blade under the crossguard. A very nice Luftwaffe dagger, uncleaned, not polished and in really great shape.
SHORT 23cm PORTEPEE FOR LUFTWAFFE DAGGER.I have acquired just a few of the shorter 23cm portapees as used on the Luftwaffe daggers, both 1st and 2nd types. They are also used on a TENO officers dagger. These are in perfect mint and unissued condition, and are made of the war-time cellon, a form of early plastic, a derivative of celluloid. I have had these on daggers over the years, but never had any loose ones. They look really good and tie perfectly on the daggers. I only have a few, so if you are missing one for your later Alcoso Luftwaffe dagger, for instance, act now!

ORIGINAL-NEAR MINT-SS OFFICERS PARADE SWORD/DAGEN-A WONDERFUL EXAMPLE.I am very lucky to be able to offer you a further example of these magnificent and rare swords. I had one a month or so ago, and it was sold immediately with a few disappointed collectors after the same item. This sword comes from the same source as the advanced collector has decided to 'slim down' on his sword collection. Introduced in 1936 and worn by SS officers only, it was 'awarded' and appears on the SS service lists as such. This one has beautiful heavily nickel plated hilt fittings, with the unique unscrewable pommel nut which reveals the tang/hilt locking devices underneath.Sword is completely untouched and has never been tampered with. These early SS swords are unique in their construction and apart from the Dachau produced swords, are, in my opinion, the only ones to buy and invest your money in, as they are completely original, and you can see they are nothing else! Black ebony grip is perfect, and all the vertical grip wires and backstrap are untouched and in near mint condition. The SS grip runes are perfectly positioned between the wires and deeply inset into the grip. The lower grip ferrell features great detail in the cast oakleaves. Underneath the crossguard are the small stamped SS runes or 'Kulturzeichen'. This is also stamped into the top of the scabbard throat. (in fact on this example the little SS runes have been stamped twice into the scabbard throat area, one each side of the blade aperture) The original white leather blade buffer is present and in very good condition. The blade is in near perfect mint condition, with a bright, but slightly matt finish. No damage, no sharpening and no 'nicks'. The blade length is approximately 30.5". This is an unmarked sword blade, SO common on SS swords (1936 SS chained dagger blades are unmarked too). The scabbard retains near 100% of its original black gloss finish. There is a small blob of old white paint half-way down. The sword must have been in the way when decorating was done! There is a VERY small light indentation in the reverse of the scabbard about 12" from the bottom. Hardly noticeable, but mentioned for clarity. The upper scabbard fitting has 2 retaining screws and is nickel plated. The lower scabbard fitting seems to be solid nickel and is a 'push -fit' type. A really superior example of the SS Officers dagen.
A SET OF SILVER ALUMINIUM HANGERS FOR THIRD REICH NAVAL ADMINISTRATION. A very good set of hangers and rare to find, as most hangers are the gilded aluminium or brass types, which were worn by 99% of naval officers. The naval administration or Abteilungsverwaltung had silver rank insignia, not gold. This included the fittings to the naval dagger but NOT the dagger itself, which remained gilded brass. These are a super set of hangers in silver anodised aluminium. They are not quite a matched pair but very close. Quite often to find miss-matched hangers as one ( the short one) wore out much quicker than the long one as it took all the weight. Nice dark blue moire fabric straps with velvet backings. No wear evident. Lions head buckles and all clips are present and work. If you collect navy items, especially daggers, there is definitely a place for the silver hangers!

NEAR MINT BROWN LEATHER TEARDROP SWORD HANGER.A nice, and virtually mint brown leather sword hanger. In a teardrop shape with nickel plated fittings and snap clip. Shows no wear at all, and probably never used. Reverse has a lighter tan leather covering. Nice accessory if you have a mint sword to complete.
