    I need to make some decisions. I have been collecting WW2 Croatian, German Police, SS, 1991 Croatian, and US Army Air Corp. I think its time to try to pick ONE OR TWO!

    Its beautiful. Congrats. I like how the coat of arms was incorporated into the basket hilt.
    Tough choice - what to collect. I hope you find out.
    Some of these eastern european pre-war daggers and sabres are simply fantastic.
    I was in Bulgaria a few years ago and stumbled over a WWII Bulgarian officers dagger.
    It was very expensive, so I didnt bite. But i have been monitoring them ever since from time to time. Some day.....
    There was also a shop with a water cooled Maxim complete with water canister, carriage and shield. Price was not bad, but I was flying out and predicted, that dragging the Maxim behind me through customs might present a slight problem.

    I managed to stop at home on the way to a meeting. Here you go.

    First dagger is Croatian Army, made by Bodek.
    Second is Ustasa Treasury Guard (very rare) typically unmarked but made by Braca Knaus.
    Third is a Braca Knaus made Croatian Army dagger. Plastic coated wood handle is losing its coating. I have done some research on recoating it and it is possible. Maybe someday.

    Also, my two deactivated ERMA-35s with a picture of OPA and his ERMA-35. Kind of a mini shrine to him.
