    Hello guys, okay, my first post...I recently bought on Ebay a vintage knife and fork, they were advertised as just that. When I looked closer there was the Leibstandarte crest on the handle of each of them and 'SD' on the reverse of the handles. I don't know if they are genuine, film props or fakes ( I doubt very much original) anyone seen anything like this before? Thanks guys.

    A typical fake from Poland or the Czech Republic, they are sold everywhere for little money in the markets.

    Also, don't lnow if this is relevant, but a few years ago, there were a glut of these LAH type cutlery, but really it should be read as HAL "Hamburg Amerika Line" a cruise ship company that used these logos on their kitchenware.

    Years ago... like mid-90's... there was a rash of "SD" monogrammed stuff making the rounds attributed to Sepp Dietrich. We were having a good laugh at the "personality collectors" that were snapping the stuff up. Why? Because it wasn't customary to monogram formal items with a nickname. Not at all. Maybe informal souvenirs given to a departing member by their comrades in a small unit, but not high grade formal stuff. That stuff would have been monogrammed with the owner's full name, in this case Josef Dietrich. So... you guessed it: Anything authentic would have been "JD" and not "SD". But the cult of personality collectors couldn't get their wallets out fast enough.
