RARE LUFTWAFFE ‘FORESTRY’ SIDEARM/BAYONET COMPLETE!! BROWN LEATHER FROG AND GREEN FORESTRY PORTEPEE.

This was the rare sidearm carried by a specific unit of the Luftwaffe concerned with security aspects of the forest. They had slightly different uniforms with a mixture of Forestry and Luftwaffe insignia, but they also carried this Forstbeamte- Seitengewehr or Forestry bayonet. Actually not a bayonet at all as it had no method of attaching to a rifle. These are distinctive knives with stag plate grips and a bayonet style blade and scabbard. They are ALL made by the same company and carry distinctive stamping on the blade ‘Ch.A.W’ and ‘Waffen-Loesche Berlin’. Blade is nickel plated and is a short carbine type with false edge. They have a ‘H’ stamped into the grip edge spine. This one is lovely and complete with the original small Luftwaffe brown frog and solid green forestry cloth knot. I have owned and seen these worn with the short 23cm bullion knot, as well as the silver/green proper Forestry cutlass portepee.Super looking knife!!!

RARE LEATHER TOP HANGING STRAPS FOR SS OR NSKK DAGGER

This is an extremely rare accessory. In black leather this is part of the 'triple hanger' as found on SS or NSKK '33 daggers. This is the two part hanger that clips to the short standard dagger hanger and become the triple of marching rig. Consists of the D ring and belt leather loop and the smaller, thinner strap with popper, that connects around the neck of the dagger grip. When worn together, it stops the dagger from swinging around. These top straps are almost never found, as they usually break, rot away, and are thrown away. This strap is in near mint condition, and would compliment your SS '33 or NSKK dagger perfectly.NSKK. (I have shown a pictured example in wear just for reference purposes)

AN EICKHORN ‘WRANGLE’ OFFICERS SWORD FROM THE FIELD MARSHALL SERIES.

Any of these parade swords from the Eickhorn Field Marshall series have become harder and harder to find. This is a very decent, used, not mint example of the ‘WRANGLE’ pattern. There were 9 in this series, all named after famous military commanders in Germanys history. Some are relatively common, others are extremely hard to find, and expensive. The Wrangle sword has a dove had hilt/pommel with an eagle and swastika on the crossguard with long outstretched wings. This one is made from gilded aluminium alloy. Earlier ones are made of brass. The gilded finish is a little dull here and there and there is evidence of lifting on the inside of the knuckle bow. Blade has most of the original nickel plating, with a few duller age patches near the hilt. The Eickhorn 1935-41 trademark is stamped into the reverse of the blade, but unusually for Eickhorn, it is a little feint, but visible. The scabbard has most of the original black paint, with no damage as far as I can see. Not a mint sword, but an idea addition to the collection until you perhaps find a better example.

THIRD REICH NAVY DAGGER WITH HAMMERED SCABBARD, ORIGINAL KNOT AND ORIGINAL HANGERS.

A really nice looking complete rig here. Comprising of a lovely navy dagger, extra cost option of a hammered brass scabbard, original navy bullion knot and a matching set of navy dagger hangers. Dagger in great condition with very nice all brass fittings. Perfect white celluloid over wood grip, the original bullion knot is tied in the correct manner around the pommel neck and then the crossguard. The stem of the knot above the acorn has suffered slight splitting at some time ( caught in a door?) but has not affected the overall look. Perfect and near mint scabbard which is hand hammered. Blade has a red felt buffer. The blade itself is plain but in MINT condition. According to period catalogues (Eickhorn) an etched blade kn a navy dagger was at extra cost. They all came with plain blades as standard. This officer obviously decided to spend his ‘extra upgrade’ on the exterior feature of a hammered scabbard and left the blade plain! The dagger is made by the WKC company, and whist their logo does not appear on the blade, certain other design features identify it as WKC. There are a beautiful set of dark blue moire cloth straps with gilded aluminium buckles and clips. The shorter strap has a very slightly worn spot where this perhaps hung under a jacket, but other than that these are super. A very nice complete set.

THIRD REICH NAVAL OFFICERS DAGGER BY EICKHORN.

This is a very nice example of the all brass naval officers parade dagger by Carl Eickhorn. A very clean dagger, all fittings have some of the original fire gilding left, especially in the covered areas and 'nooks and crannies'. Nice detail to the Eickhorn type pommel. Celluloid over wood grip with original twisted brass wire. The grip has no cracks or broken parts but there are a few surface scratches to the front surface. Crossguard with release button. A very nice scabbard which seems to be completely dent free. A few areas of fire gilt are in the top areas and around the scabbard bands. Blade is very nice indeed. Original brown felt washer in place. Blade has nice and clear deep charcoal grey etching on both sides. Anchor and dolphins. Reverse riccasso has the post 1936 Eichhorn squirrel deeply stamped into the surface.
A nice example.

THIRD REICH FIREMAN DRESS SIDEARM - UNUSUAL MAKER.

A near mint example of a long pattern Fireman’s dress bayonet/sidearm. I say sidearm as they are really not a bayonet. The fire service did not carry rifles and there is no mortise slot to attach this to one! These daggers were purely for dress and parade purposes. This is a very nice long example with a most unusual maker ‘Grawiso’. Which is for the Gebrueder Graefrath company. The trademark comes from their location Grafrath Widdert Solingen ‘Gra-Wi-So’. All nickel plating on the hilt and crossguard is perfect. It has all of the original black scabbard paint and the blade is completely stone mint.

THIRD REICH POLICE OFFICER 2 PIECE BUCKLE.

A very nice example of the alloy 2 piece buckle worn on the leather and also the parade bullion belt. A complete buckle with both keepers, one with claw adjuster. Circular frame with swastika in the centre and ‘Got Mit Uns’ around the edge. Reverse maker marked OLC in a diamond, for Overhoff and Cie. Great display piece with Police items or if you are just a buckle collector. Not common.

LUFTWAFFE CLOSE COMBAT/BOOT FIGHTING KNIFE.

Always a very popular item with collectors, so I am happy to offer a nice example here. They are typically all identical to each other. A nice wooden grip with 3 steel domed rivets. Narrow steel crossguard and a clipped back, carbine shaped blade. As far as I know, or have encountered, there are only 3 markings on the blade. Small Waffenampt stamp with either a 5 or a 6 underneath or just a stamped ‘S’ on the riccasso.
I’ve found that the ‘5’ stamping is more common thsn the ‘6’. This blade has a little ‘6’ stamped on it. The wooden grips are in great condition. Blade is in very nice shape with no damage. The scabbard has virtually 100% of the original black paint and on the reverse the 3 springs used to hold the dagger in place, either in a boot top or on belt or tunic, are really strong and in great shape.

THIRD REICH NAVAL OFFICERS DAGGER, KNOT & STRAPS IN STONE MINT CONDITION!

An amazing dagger this. Unfortunately I am okd enough to remember a time when you could easily find a dagger like this at most fairs. I remember attending a Bedford Arms fair, and a dealer I still know, walked past me clutching at least 6 of these beauties, all in mint condition and all with straps! These days are long gone, but occasionally something like this pops out of the woodwork. If this dagger was worn more that a couple of times, then you can call me Shirley! It has 100% of the fire hilt remaining on ALL of the brass surfaces. There are no dents or impressions on the scabbard, anywhere! It has its original thick navy bullion portapee tied in the proper manner, and you can see it’s been there for ever, as it’s settled in place. The blade is of course STONE MINT too. The etched 1935-41 Eickhorn squirrel is on the riccasso. It actually still has a coating of original protective grease which has gone green in places due to the brass beside it. All the etched panels are dark charcoal and the nickel plated blade is faultless. The dagger came with its original hanging straps which again are in mint condition and show just the minor-ist of wear where the clips touch metal rings etc. The moire front material is 100% perfect. There is no wear to the cloth or backing velvet. The lions head buckles are beautiful and bear the same casting mark on the reverse, an M in a diamond. A trusty lovely dagger complete rig. Needs to go in a packet or cover really and put an Eickhorn factory tag on it.
