    I have to look back, at the post with Carl Eickhorn etched bayonets with infantry motif.
    Its all look like the original, only one with bone handle, (bone looks a bit brighter) but I think that she was fine (I'm not 100% sure)

    Brought to my attention elsewhere, this one is a little bit ahead of its time (although I suspect that the origin was not from a German speaking nation). Described as a “German Nazi Kriegsmarine Dagger w/scabbard”. Being a special issue Naval dagger for the “SS” motorized water ski equipped troops of the 2679 SS 20 kradschutzen bataillon (Kradschützen-Bataillon in the TR era Wehrmacht being a Motorcycle Infantry Battalion).

    And somebody paid over $400.00 U.S. very recently to acquire this “rarity” (or piece of junk). Best Regards, Fred
    This is a great example of a repro parts dagger,,,but Im not sure what part is supposed to represent a certain branch of service as it all looks equally balanced. The "Romper Room" magic wand sees a Kriegsmarine dagger mostly..with the grip crossguard and possibly the blade. I cant identify the scabbard,,and the Gold 2nd Luftwaffe Pommel is a nice touch. The maker logo is now widely seen.."here". I would expect to see a dagger of this calibre at an outside flea market table,,between the early morning Hotsausage stand and the Portable urinals. Thanks Fred..this one is horrible

    These next photos are from member "Ceies" that were posted in the main forum,,, I am torn between 2 threads for these photos ...So i will place these photos in both...The Best of the Worst" thread...AND...."Near perfect edged weapon reproductions" thread. I am amazed and heart broken at the same time the amount of time and no mercy placed on these pieces of history.........RUINED....by greed. These will hurt your stomach from laughter and disgust at the same time.
    What is wrong with these is that the perfect blade etchings have been placed on worn bayonets without any surface wear to the etching themselves and the Himmler inscribed bayonet...the inscription itself is only seen on early SS presentation daggers .

    Heres a beauty,,,an SS Bayonet from the 12th SS Div. with SS runes affixed to the grip plates.
    that could easily fool a less experienced collector...

    Here is a pocket knife that was posted by WRF member Dean for discussion on the HJ forum..which after a short discussion was deemed a fake. Here is Deans original post. Thanks again Dean to adding to this data base of fakes. Stuff like this needs to be seen.

    This is a pocket knife with sig rune made by Utica Cutlery, circa 1930's. the blades are unsharpened. This is being sold on the Flying Tig** Antiques Online Store for $345.00 . It's labled as a German-American Bund Knife.
    I posted this not only to let you guys know this is on the market, but also as a reference for future use.
    Dean.
