German Daggers & Knives

//German Daggers & Knives

German DaggerThe German Dagger was a very popular souvenir for many WW2 veterans who served in the European theater. For the German officers who wore them, they were a symbol of status, rank and power. Contrary to popular belief, WWII German Daggers were not used as weapons, but simply as an accessory to the uniforms of the German Officers (and a very fancy accessory at that). Some of the more common of these German Collectibles are the; German Army Dagger (aka Heer Dagger), Luftwaffe Dagger (aka Air Force Dagger), Navy Dagger (aka Kriegsmarine Dagger), and the Hitler Youth Dagger (aka HJ Dagger). There is also the ever popular Nazi SS Dagger. These daggers can be recognized by the prominent deep black handle and sheath, with a round “SS” button at the top of the handle, just beneath the top cross guard. SS Daggers must be carefully scrutinized due to the extremely high number of very detailed reproductions dating back decades! Often times novice collectors will unknowingly purchase an SS Dagger, only to discover later they purchased a very well made fake!

  • Gold Government Official Dagger (Eastern People’s Government Dagger)

Gold Government Official’s Dagger (Eastern People’s RMBO) by Carl Eickhorn

Price: $18,500.00
This has to be one of the rarest Third Reich daggers around, as well as one of the most desirable, and most beautiful! Few collectors are lucky enough to see one in person, much less have the good fortune to add one to their collection. Sometimes referred to as a “Gold Government Dagger” (or Gold Government Official’s Dagger), the more formal label is the Eastern People’s Government Official’s dagger. This particular one is (frankly) the nicest one I’ve seen in my years of collecting...

Postschutz Postal Protection Leader Dagger by Paul Weyersberg

Price: $5,200.00
We can’t get enough of these Postal Protection Daggers, also referred to as Postschutz Daggers. This is perhaps the best we’ve seen to date (anywhere) in terms of overall condition, yet priced very reasonably. Starting with the grip, the ebony wood is completely free of cracks and chips. If you’ve studied these daggers you’ll know that these grips were prone to cracking so finding one as stable as this is rare in and of itself! There is notable verdigris where the wood of the grip meets the pommel cap and the guard, so we believe this dagger has never been disassembled, an added plus!...
