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 (RMBO) by Carl Eickhorn

Price on Request
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!...

Field Upgrade Chained NSKK Dagger by Haenel

Price: $2,850.00
We have here an impressive example NSKK Officer’s Dagger with field upgraded chain assembly with several interesting attributes. Starting with the dagger itself, we see a very well preserved Haenel SA dagger with a bold and crisp motto on the front, and “C. G. Haenel” makers mark on the reverse...

2nd Model RLB Leader Dagger by Alcoso ACS

The grip is wrapped in the dagger’s original blue leather with several minor wear points that any RLB dagger expects to see. These daggers (for whatever reason) simply never age well.

  • Early SS Dagger by Robert Klaas

Early SS Dagger by Robert Klaas

This item has Sold or is On Hold
We do love these Robert Klaas SS Daggers! Their maker’s mark of the two kissing cranes has become synonymous with SS Daggers, and is an extremely popular maker with collectors. Overall this SS Dagger is about as good as it gets when considering it has been in a veteran’s footlocker since the end of the war, and not messed with since!

  • HJ Hitler Youth knife M7/85 Arthur Evertz

HJ Hitler Youth knife by M7/85 (Arthur Evertz)

Price: $775.00
Here’s a good clean WWII Hitler Youth knife by very hard to find maker Arthur Evertz (RZM M7/85). The knife and scabbard show average signs of wear from use and time. The scabbard retains 90% + of the paint on the back and approximately 70% on the front. The leather strap is worn in the center by the rivet. It is weak in that area and caution should be used when handling this.

Army (Heer) Officer Dagger by Carl Eickhorn

Price on Request
A very nice WW2 German Dagger, this Heer Officer Dagger bears the Carl Eickhorn Solingen maker mark on the blade. The blade measures 10.25”, and is the traditional stiletto style with flat central ridge. Total length (including the hilt) is approximately 14.5". This dagger has never been cleaned, stored untouched since World War 2, and purchased directly from the daughter of the vet who brought it home. Aside from a hairline crack in the handle, the dagger is virtually without flaw considering it was a used war time piece.
