    Default The controversial Railway Water Protection Police Dagger

    This is my RWPP dagger. For as long as I remember controversies have raged on various forums regarding the existense of these daggers. Although it is shown in the Eickhorn Kundendienst catalog those tht occasionally show up on forums have been challenged for authenticity. The problem is that the dagger can be easily constructed from parted out second model RW and army daggers.
    As far as my dagger is concerned, all I can say that it is textbook and all the components are original. And thats about what anyone else who owns one can say. I could, on the other hand, come up with a pretty competitive bullshit story regarding its acquisition. But I don't have the time today.

    I've never seen one of these, but it's obviously another of your quality acquisitions. I don't understand where the doubt could have originated if it's listed in an Eickhorn cataloge? Almost every branch of anything in the Reich had daggers. Sometimes the BS stories are fun to read anyway. Very nice dagger, thanks for showing.

    I agree regarding BS stories. However, they only again, like repo's, help reduce the credible stories of our heroes and family members that served and the items we honor so much in their memories and stories they have told with much reserve due to what they saw and participated in. Nice piece

    I'm happy to admit I don't know enough about these daggers to say either they were period or not. As with the Marine SA dagger or the 1st model Bahnschutz dagger, I'd like to think they existed & this model would easily be considered one of the rarest (if not the rarest) typical period production daggers of the 3R.

    Whether it is or it isn't, I simply do enjoy the show. Many thanks Cog, for sharing your treasures.
