A MOST UNIQUE HJ BOYS KNIFE WITH BOWIE BLADE-WKC.This type of Hitler Youth knife is shown pictured on page 218 vol 1 of 'Collecting the edged weapons of the Third Reich'. One of the best original 'bibles' of this hobby. Personally I have had perhaps 2 or 3 of these unusual HJ knives, and they are all the same. 100% real, they were produced by the WKC company after 1938 and probably quite late into the war. Every company wanted to make something a little 'different' to attract more sales than their competitor, and this was a way of doing it with the very standard HJ boys knife. The basic dagger is the same as any RZM period produced piece. Nickel plated fittings over a grey alloy base, very nice black chequered grips with enamel HJ diamond. Standard HJ type of scabbard with black paint. ALL OF THE HJ daggers I have had like this (with bowie blade) are made with black pebbled pigskin leather to the long belt loop and to the cross strap with popper clip. Even the black blade washer is made of the same pebbled leather! The blade is similar to the normal HJ except it has been specifically made with a bowie spear type point and false edge. This is not an 'adapted' HJ blade or one that's been altered. It's completely different, being narrower, longer and thinner. This example has no maker mark, but several of the others I have handled, had the WKC Knights head logo, in full or partial treatment. For instance one only had 50% of the logo showing as the rest was underneath the quillion/crossguard. In my humble opinion, I think WKC used left over blades from either a fighting knife or bayonet, and fashioned them into these HJ bowie types. Would be an obvious move in order not to waste stock, and would explain why the trademark is either missing, or partially hidden under the crossguard. These blades already had the trademark on them , but in fitting to this HJ hilt, are cut down to fit. Anyway, these are great original pieces, and if you collect HJ items, it's probably a variation you don't have.
SOLID GREEN KNOT/PORTEPEE FOR FORESTRY OR SHOOTING ASSOCIATION CUTLASS.This is actually quite a difficult knot to find. Made of solid green cotton, and all one colour. This knot is suitable for EITHER the Subordinate Forestry Cutlass (one with stag grips) OR the Third Rich Shooting Association dagger. Both had solid green knots. In good used condition, the ball is made of solid green cotton twists and the flat cotton straps are also plain green cotton fabric.
SENIOR FORESTRY BULLION/GREEN DAGGER KNOT.This is the correct portepee or knot which is worn on the hilt of the Senior Forestry Officials cutlass. Worn with the cream celluloid hilted cutlass and tied in the same way as a parade sword. These are hard originals to find and really complete a Forestry Cutlass. Silver bullion ball/acorn, with green bottom insert. Flat bullion strap has twin solid green lines running the length. Platted slide is twisted green/silver. In near perfect condition, has been on a dagger, but no wear or damage.

BLACK LEATHER SWORD 'TEAR-DROP' HANGER.This is a black pig skin leather tear-drop hanger which would be suitable for most swords, but especially the vertical hanging Police or SS swords.

AN EXCEPTIONAL TENO MAN'S DAGGER WITH HANGER AND VERY RARE TENO PORTEPEE.I am very pleased to offer this absolutely superb TENO man's dagger. In addition to the dagger being in exceptional condition, it also has the original TENO leather hanger and one of the EXCEPTIONALLY rare multi-coloured TENO portepees! Both the Officers and man's daggers were only made by Eickhorn. Their trademark appears on the blade along with the TENO eagle and an accountability number 1093. This matching number is also stamped into the scabbard throat. The condition of this piece is really amazing, with no discernible lifting or damage to any of the metal fittings, the dull nickel plating is complete throughout. The cream grip plates are perfect. Scabbard fittings are prefect and the scabbard body retains 100% of the original black paint, with the minimal of spidering. The original leather TENO frog is attached to the rear of the scabbard and again is in exceptional condition. Even the narrow retaining strap that goes over the grip and into a button, is present. It is a little fragile, but complete and not broken. What is even more exceptional is the ORIGINAL green/grey TENO 'standby' portepee. There were in fact 8 portepees for the TENO dagger. 4 for the NCO's and 4 for the other ranks (mans'). There is original reference material available in the form of the 1940 colour uniform regulation sheet from the TENO handbook! This portepee is for the 'Allgemeiner Dienst' which is 'general' service. I have seen very few TENO portepees in my 40 years, extremely rare things, and I have seen JUST these change for large sums, on their own. It has a green stem with black above and below on the top of the ball. The rest of the ball is grey, whist the cloth strap is grey with twin black lines. Blade on this dagger is exceptional and retains it's dull surface polish. Overall and wonderful and COMPLETE example. Exceptional price too, for complete and mint dagger/portepee/frog.

SUPERB MINIATURE ARMY OFFICERS DAGGER. This is the standard 7.5” Horster size miniature. In my opinion all these sizes were made by the Horster company and were offered for sale to other companies who put their own logos on. This one has the advertising logo for ‘Alexanderwerk’ on the blade, on the other side is the small Trident logo ED WUSTOFF. Has lovely orange grip, perfectly proportioned fittings. Perfect pebbles scabbard. A really nice miniature.
VERY RARE RAD OFFICERS TOP CLIP FOR LEATHER HANGERS. This is a piece of dagger hanger accessory that is missing from most collections. The RAD Officers hangers (and some of the early RAD man’s hangers) need this clip and loop to connect to a belt! All Officers hangers have a wide metal top clip where the hangers are attached. This clip fits onto that and then to the belt. No other clip will suffice. This one is made and marked by Assmann plus has the RADJ triangle and 1937 date. Also has a little leather flap to protect the uniform from the clip. In excellent used condition. Incredibly difficult to find if you want to complete your RAD rig.
JAPANESE WW2 RAYON SILK 'MEAT BALL' FLAG.In mint condition, this is a small rayon silk Japanese banner/flag, probably taken with the soldiers pack to battle. Never been issued and therefore in mint condition. Measures about 2' x 2' 6" rectangular and has gold foil reinforced corners with string tags. A single 'meat ball' red sun and a white background.
JAPANESE WW2 TOWN 'GOOD LUCK' BANNER.Displayed and hung in towns and villages and it basically says "Good luck and stay well as you go off to War". Made of rayon silk and colourfully printed on one side. Hangs from a pole at the top and is approximately 4' long. Has the National 'meat ball' Japanese flag along with the 'rising sun' flag printed at the top, then numerous Japanese characters printed down the banner. In perfect condition and ideal to display with a Japanese edged weapon collection etc.
