I would be happy to own them too. I agree that it makes it better when it belongs to the same group.
ok i'll post my ratty, er salty daggers. i got these two from the same guy about a year apart, almost 30 years ago. i never came across better ones that i could afford. and i was happy to have these. on the m33 the wood was replaced just before i got it. he got an original grip, and used the original grip eagle and SS from the damaged handle, he gave me the original grip too. what i'm curious about is why the fittings on one has turned gold, and the other dagger has not. stored in the same drawer for over 20 years. they looked the same back then. it is not cigarette smoke. it is like luger trigger gold. the m33 tang nut was hand tight, so i took it off to show the tang marks.
both daggers are compleatly un marked no 1 11 or 111 . the m36 is a type 3. it had a rough life. you can see the layers of steel where is sat in the scabbard and rusted on the blade retainers. so it was well cleaned before i got it. i left them as is. the buckle is an early Overhoff. the luger is not SS but it looks good for the pic.
Very nice items you have there Andrew
Looking for the photo albums of Leutnant Emil Freitag, 3. / G.R. 377
Anyways thanks again... and can we see more of the Luger?
