The items displayed on this page do not reflect what the politically correct naysayers would have you believe.  These pieces are not about Nazi sympathy, anti-Semitism, or some type of radical neo-Nazi support.  Quite simply these items were war trophies brought back by WWII veterans.  These brave men, many of them barely old enough to vote, faced an evil and sinister enemy and defeated them on battlefiends from the shores of Normany to the shores of Iwo Jima.  To these men the term "to the victor belong the spoils" was a common sentiment.  Each of these items came at a heavy price that too many today don't understand or appreciate.

We are losing our WWII vets at an alarming rate.  Please consider picking up the tab at restaurants or the grocery store when you encounter them to let them know their service and their sacrifice is appreciated.

Chained SS Dagger Model 1936

This chained SS dagger is in very good condition.  It has a beautiful ebony grip with no knicks or chips and nickel plated scabbard mounts with very little wear.  I do have the correct aluminum portepee for the dagger but it is not original to the piece and I am unsure how to properly tie it.  The scabbard is straight throughout with no dents and original balck enamel paint.  Ther are some minor scratches in the paint on the scabbard but they are small and there is no rusting.  Attached at the top is the clover leaf snap clip - the clip spring works perfectly.  The blade is bright throughout with normal runner marks and no maker's stamp.  No knicks in blade and it bears the motto "My Honor is called Loyalty".  The SS motto is deep and crisp.  This is a fine example of a chained SS.  This dagger is from my father's collection from the early 1970's.  It hasn't even seen the light of day in decades.

Early 1st Model Luftwaffe Dagger – E. & F. Hörster

It is unusual to see an early 1st Model Luftwaffe Dagger made by E. & F. Hörster. This is a fine dagger, having solid nickel mounts throughout, with good silvering over the nickel.  The grip is of carved wood covered in a dark Moroccan leather. There is very little wear to the leather and the grip is tightly wrapped with a skein of three brass wires.  The scabbard is completely straight throughout and covered in dark Moroccan leather. Only a few tiny wears to the leather that occur naturally over seventy years.  Photos show 2 small nicks and a few light creases in the leather.  The scabbard mounts are also in great condition, still having their silvering over the solid nickel base.  The nickel chain hanger is in place as well as the snap clip.  The blade of this dagger is of highest quality, nickel-plated and in near mint condition with a mirror finish. There is one tiny nick in the blade about an inch from the tip which is barely visible in the photos. 

This is a very fine, early 1st Model Luftwaffe Dagger. It is completely untouched and in very fine condition.  It has actually been in my father's collection since the early 70's.

Red Cross Officer's Dagger

This Red Cross Officer's Dagger is in very fine overall condition. The pommel is still nice and crisp throughout its edges. The crossguard is an excellent depiction with its oval disks on each side. The reverse disk is plain and the obverse disk features a half closed-winged eagle clutching a cross in his talons. There is a raised out mobile swastika on the bird’s chest. The grip is a fine deep orange color and is in perfect condition though very slightly loose.  The scabbard has good nickel finish throughout.  The plating is very good throughout having a little bit of age. The scabbard pebbling is still nice and crisp and has near 95% plating. The photos show one area where the plating has worn off.  The blade is nice and bright throughout. This blade remains in mint condition having only the normal runner marks on the ricasso area. The blade is unmarked. This blade is protected by an in place black leather buffer.  It is not too common to find these bring backs with the hangers still attached.   A nice Red Cross dagger here again from my father's collection.

Unissued NSKK/NSDAP Dagger with Tags - RZM M7/66 1939 - Carl Eichorn

This is a pre-war unissued NSKK/NSDAP dagger with both RZM and Carl Eichorn tags remaining on hanger.  This dagger is in decent condition but has some flaws.  The crossguard is bright on both sides with some tiny chipping on the front where the crossguard meets the grip.  The tang has begun to lose it's luster and some of the nickel plating finish is chipping from it as well.  The tang nut has no silver plating remaining.  The wooden grip is in nice shape with good graining but the SA symbol insert is discolored.  The blade is good overall but there some discoloration spots along the balde and on both sides around the crossguard.  Unfortunatly there is clearly a fingerprint on the reverse.  The motto is crisp and strong with black enamel remaining.  The scabbard has some minor surface scratching that could be buffed out but other than that is in good condition.  This is a neat and rarer piece being unissued.

Early War SA Dagger with hanger- RZM 7/9 1941

This early war SA dagger is in excellent condition throughout.  The grip is in beautiful condition and looks to be mahogany.  The nickel plating on the crossguard and tang are bright.  The blade is bright and contains the SA motto "All for Germany".  The lettering is deep and crisp and retains much of the original black enamel.  The point is sharp and there are the normal runner marks throughout.  The scbbard on this beauty is especially nice in almost untouched condition with only some very small scratches along the right side obvioulsy made by the hanger lightly rubbing against it.  The paint underneath the brown is black so I can't completely rule out that this has not been repainted sometime over the years but there are no brush strokes or any obvious signs.  The leather hanger is in mint condition with no creases or soft spots.  It is RZM marked M5/71 and the clip spring works perfectly.  Al in all a very nice expamle of this type of dagger.

Early War SA Dagger - RZM 7/68 1941

Another very nice example of a 1941 SA Dagger with hanger.  This early war SA dagger is in excellent very good condition throughout.  The grip is in beautiful condition and looks to be mahogany.  The nickel plating on the crossguard and tang have begun to dull.  The blade is bright and contains the SA motto "All for Germany".  The lettering is crisp but no black enamel remains.  The point is sharp and there are the normal runner marks throughout.  The scabbard is very nice with some very small scratches along the side and back.  The scabbard  appears black in the photo but it is a deep chocolate brown.  The leather hanger is in good condition and is black in color. The nickel plating has dulled (moreso than the crossguard so it may have been added to the piece over the years).  The clip spring is unmarked but works perfectly.

Army Officer's Dagger - WKC

This is a nice Army Officer's Dagger with attached poutepee and is in very good untouched condition overall.  The crossguard is crisp in detail and in excellent condition.  The pommel cap while in excellent condition has lost most of its silver finish on the top.  The grip on this dagger is yellowish pumpkin in color and is in very good condition with one very small chip on the reverse bottom.  The scabbard retains about 75% of its original finish and definately shows signs of actual use.  The blade is shiny with a few small scratches near the top and normal runner marks.  The tip is as fine as a needle.  A solid example here that show signs of actual usage.

2nd Model Naval Dagger – Carl Eickhorn

This Eickhorn 2nd Model Naval Dagger is a textbook example with a highest quality hilt and scabbard. The pommel shows little wear and has fine detailing throughout.  The off-white celluloid over wood grip is in perfect condition throughout. It is tightly wrapped with twisted brass wire. The original-to-the-piece aluminum portepee is still in place. The scabbard is also in fine condition. There are no dents and the obverse retains about 80% of the original gilding. The reverse shows some wear to the gilding between the carrying bands as well as a small amount to the lower portion of the scabbard. The gilding here is about 70% intact. The carrying bands are decorated with outstanding overlapping oak leaves and acorns.  The double etched blade of this dagger is in mint condition. It is completely mirror-bright with a fine, needle-like tip and retains 100% of the frosting behind the etch. The fouled anchor motif really jumps off the blade and is among the best you will ever see. The reverse ricasso of the blade is stamped with the “Over the Shoulder” Eickhorn Squirrel trademark first used in 1941, and the original brown felt blade buffer is in place.  A very fine Eickhorn Naval Dagger here.

Again, this dagger has been in my father's collection since the 1970's

Police Bayonet – Carl Eickhorn

This Police Bayonet is equipped with solid nickel mounts throughout. The detail to the eagle head pommel, eye and feathering below is still excellent. . The smooth area on the quillion bears inscriptiuon "L. Ko163".  The grip plates are a very pleasing tan color stag.  The scabbard is a dark brown leather and it shows some normall age and wear but is still in great condition. The frog is a very fine brown example still being in excellent plus condition. This frog is stamped on the back, "H?????  Berlin".  The reverse side of the blade is stamped with the large double oval circle used prior to 1933. These large double ovals contain the firm’s name and location, “Carl Eickhorn Solingen”. Inside is a seated squirrel with serrated tail holding a nut in his paws. The animal is positioned over the firm’s initials, “C.E.”.  This is out of my personal collection and comes with the correct portepee but I just don't know how to tie it correctly so it is not currently on the bayonet.  Great example of this type of bayonet.

Refurbished NSKK Dagger - Hugo Koller

This is a refurbished NSKK made by Hugo Koller.  I purchased this one directly from the veteran himself in 1989.  He had this knife, some armbands, and box of medals and tinnies that I purchased from him.  He said he had come to a time in his life to let go of the past and no longer carry the burden.  This gentleman's stories were of far more value than the objects he returned home with.  I was blessed to have spent the afternoon with him and I will never forget it. Because the dagger was a rarer maker but in very rough shape, I had it refurbished.  All the metal was buffed out and cleaned and now has a nice shine to it.  The grip had a major split in the front and back when purchased.  It was put back together where split and is evident by a thin noticable line on the front and back of the grip.  The scabbard was dented and scratched up.  The dents remain but the scabbard was sanded down and repainted. The blade was in rough shape as well having some rust spots forming near the crossguard.  The blade was refurbished and the rusting area stablized.  Black enamel was re-applied to the motto.  This is a good chance to purchase an honest to goodness veteran souvenir that was there and saw the elephant for a fraction of the cost of non-refurbished speciman.
