SS Dagger - EM36 - Boeker

SS service dagger, 1933 model, by the sought-after maker, Heinrich Boeker of Solingen; complete with both vertical hanger (Assmann marked) and the short hanger (RZM marked).

The dagger features a carved hardwood, ebony-coloured, grip, with SS runes button and national emblem. The scabbard has nickel silver fittings throughout (note the crossguard has a Roman numeral "I" to the reverse (district stamping). The scabbard which would have had an anodised finish initially has been painted at some point in its life (please observe the scabbard fitting screws show signs of having been unscrewed (to facilitate the painting of the scabbard)).

The blade is the real beauty of this dagger: the acid etched motto "Meine Ehre heisst Treue" ("My Honour is Loyalty") remains crips, as does the Boeker maker-mark; the subtle cross-graining remains visible on both sides of the dagger. Finally, the blade provides a satisfying "click" when placed into the scabbard.

The blade does have some light marks: runner marks; light scratches; etc. All, in all though, the dagger must surely rate as being in very good to excellent condition.

Please note this item is available for UK sale only.

SA Dagger - EM - Justinuswerk

SA dagger by the maker, Justinuswerk. The dagger is complete with the short hanger.

The dagger is an early quality examle featuring: hardwood grip; nickel silver fittings and an anodised scabbard. The crossguard is marked to the reverse with the Gruppe mark; BO (Bayerische Ostmark).

The scabbard has an anodised finish and even retains traces of the original lacquer. All screws are present and correct and look to be unturned; similarly the tang nut (indicating that the dagger has never been taken apart).

The blade is bright and retains much of the original cross-graining. Some light marks: runner marks; some speckles around the upper portion of the blade (both sides). Ultimately though, a fine example of an SA dagger in excellent condition.

Please note this item is available for UK sale only.

Luftwaffe Dagger - 2nd Pattern - Herder

Striking example of a 2nd pattern Luftwaffe dagger, as manufactured by the firm of Herder, Solingen.

As can be seen from the photos, the dagger is in excellent condition: all screws are unturned; the scabbard retains much of its original finish; the pommel swastikas retain traces of their original gilt finish; the blade buffer pad is present; the blade is bright with crossgraining visible throughout.

In short, a choice example.

Heer Dagger - FW Hoeller

Good example of an army dagger, as manufactured by the firm of FW Hoeller, Solignen.

The dagger features a plated scabbard (please note there is some light bubbling to the plating, along the sides of the scabbard).

Although a little dull, the blade is in very good condition with only minor marks and greying.

All in all, a good example.

Kriegsmarine Dagger - WKC - Hammered Scabbard

Very good example of a Kriegsmarine dagger, complete with hanging straps.

The dagger is a WKC (Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie) example and features a fouled anchor blade and hammered scabbard.

The dagger is in overall, excellent condition and retains much of the original fire gilding throughout (the tip of the scabbard shows some wear but is neither bent nor damaged (they were frequently shut in car doors)). The scabbard screws are in very good condition and the blade still has its original red buffer pad. The blade is still bright with only minor spotting. Please note the hilt blade release is very stiff and slightly bent; the pommel is also loose (when tightened it faces the wrong direction): most probably the result of having been overtightened at some point in time.

In closing, a fine example and a great looking dagger.

Please note this item is available for UK sale only.

HJ Knife - RZM Marked - 1940
