098EW15 - BDM youth knife. This small version of the Hitler Youth knife was worn by the BDM.. This is a downsized version of the Hitler Youth knife but lacks the motto and grip insignia. The knife's checkerboard grips are mint. The exterior silvered surfaces and blade have lost the silver finish. There is no maker mark. The scabbard shows normal use as indicated by scuffing and loss of finish. The leather strap and buffer are complete. $375. More Photos

088EW9-1small.jpg

088EW9 - Fireman's double marked dress bayonet by Tiger, Georg Keller. This is one of the finest examples of a Fireman's bayonet I have ever seen. The silver upper pommel and lower crossguard are 100% with the bright silver finish. The silver rivets and checkerboard grip plates are perfect. The frog is near mint. The black painted scabbard would be hard to upgrade. The blade is also minty with the Tiger maker's mark on one side and the name George Heller., Munchen on the other. Beautiful! $450. More Photos

082EW4-1small.jpg

082EW4 - K98 police bayonet with scabbard dated 1937 w/frog. This is an excellent example of a police bayonet as designated by the "b" nomenclature. This piece features the original bluing in excellent condition showing virtually no age. The wood grip plates have a great hardwood finish. The reverse side of the upper scabbard shows the date and matching "S" numbers. $550. More Photos

The brown frog shows normal age and wear. $150. More Photos

082EW6-1small.jpg

082EW6 - K98 bayonet with "commercial" scabbard by Paul Weyersberg. This beautiful piece features deep brown bakelite grip plates. The bluing on the blade is in near perfect condition. The lower crossguard is waffen stamped with the eagle and "B" indicating issuance to the police. The scabbard has no markings indicating this to be an earlier made piece. The obverse of the blade has a serial number of "2555". Rare and in great condition. $450. More Photos

082EW7-1small.jpg

082EW7 - Double engraved Fireman's bayonet with frog and knot by Alcoso. This is one rare piece. This dress bayonet features all the components of a standard fireman's dress bayonet but here the description begins - the double etched panels are dedicated to the "Remembrance of his service days with the Munich Fire Department" The obverse panel is highlighted by a fireman's helmet with a swastika. This is very rare to find. The reverse panel has three small areas of where the plating has deteriorated where the Munich Fire Department is inscribed. I can't emphasize enough how rare this etched bayonet is. $2850. More Photos

081EW14-1small.jpg

081EW14 - RAD Leader's dagger by WKC. This dagger features a complete white celluloid grip with the stylized RAD eagle head at the pommel. There are some minor nicks to the head but no serious lifting that often accompanies these silver plated pieces. The blade is in near mint condition with a deeply etched motto. The scabbard still retains some of its original varnish.This is an excellent example. $2450. More Photos

081EW5-1small.jpg

081EW5 - Hitler Youth knife with motto dated 1937 by J.A. Henckels and RZM marked. These HJ knives with mottos are getting harder to find. It's really exciting to find one that is not only dated with a motto but one that has an RZM code along with a maker's mark. This knife features a complete "diamond" and excellent, unchipped checkerboard grip. There is wear to the silver finish along the grip's top and spine areas. So what! This piece is unsharpened and has a lightly etched motto. The original buffer is intact. The blade has no rust or pitting. It has normal in and out wear.The sheath is anodized. The leather hanger and belt with snap closure is intact but shows age cracking. Becoming rarer. $850.  More Photos

0710EW26-1small.jpg

0710EW26 - Red Cross subordinate hewer with frog. This example comes complete with the hard to find frog. The frog is missing one of the rivets. The grip is free of cracks and chips. The Red Cross eagle on the lower crossguard has excellent detail. The scabbard paint has normal scratches and wear. The blade is in very good condition having areas light "smudging". Don't touch the blades and if you do, wipe them clean with a soft cloth immediately. Red Cross hewers are becoming increasingly hard to find as ones in this condition disappear into collections. $1050. More Photos

0710EW18-1small.jpg

0710EW18 - RAD Leader's hewer. This an excellent example showing a high amount of original lacquer. The stylized pommel eagle has no lifting to the head and has excellent detail. The white age patinaed grip plate on the obverse side shows a "Y" shaped hairline crack which is common to these beautiful daggers. The lower crossguard displays the RAD emblem with good detail. Blade shows llight graying in areas but this does not detract from the overall appearance. The RAD motto, "Arbeit adelt" is deeply etched with excellent background burnishing. The scabbard displays much of the original factory lacquer which is not common and good to see. However, there are areas where the silver finish has worn off towards the tip of the obverse side. Given the condition of the rest of the hewer and the age yellowing caused by the lacquer this is barely noticeable. $2495. More Photos

0710EW17-1small.jpg

0710EW17 - RAD subordinate hewer with Full stag grips by Carl Eickhorn. RAD's are becoming harder to find at shows as they disappear into collections. This hewer is made more rare by having the "full-stag" grips. Typically, we see the stylized eagle' head in partial metal. The earlier ones came with "full-stag". This dagger also has a stamped number 107 preceded by a worn "Fu" for Fuehrer or leader. Not an officer hewer but probably an NCO carried this piece. The obverse of the scabbard shows good but worn silver plating to the fittings. The reverse shows that the silver plating on the upper scabbard fitting is pretty worn probably due to carrying. The black painted scabbard has lost much of its original paint. The blade has grayed significantly, having lost much of its original finish. There is no rust or pitting. The small Eickhorn squirrel further indicates early manufacture. The motto "Atbeit adelt" (work ennobles), is deeply etched but has lost its burnish. This is a rare piece even with consideration given to its worn appearance. $1675.  More Photos

0710EW10-1small.jpg

0710EW10 - Red Cross subordinate hewer. These are getting harder to find especially in this condition. This example features a checkerboard grip plate on the obverse side and a smooth bakelite grip plate on the reverse. The lower crossguard has the Red Cross eagle with the swastika on its breast clutching the red cross. The blade is clean. Under the reverse crossguard is stamped Ges. Geschultz. The scabbard shows normal wear to its original finish. $975. More Photos

0710EW3-1small.jpg

0710EW3 - Rural Police Bayonet by Weyersberg. This bayonet features beautiful stag grip plates and grip eagle. The plates are accented by the stylized eagle's head pommel and oak leaf motif on the lower crossguards. There are the letters GTr. 5920 stamped on the reverse of the lower guard. The brown leather scabbard indicates "rural police". The blade on this is bright except for some darkening towards the tip. The obverse of the blade shows a stamped knight's head. The reverse is stamped "Weyersberg, Kirchbaum…". The frog is stamped and dated 1928. It was common to use pre-Third Reich police bayonets and convert for use by the Third Reich police by affixing the eagle and shortening the blade. This one has a shortened blade. A great piece. $875. More Photos
