    hi wehrmachtsman , collectors have differing opinions on this subject , and choices probably have to be made depending on the condition of the dagger . it can be from doing absolutely nothing and storing in a case , to applying a light coating of machine oil , to the application of renwax ( rennaisance wax ). on the plus side the last option effectively seals the blade from atmospheric oxidation , but on the minus side if there is already light age damage , this will be sealed in and will carry on . it`s a personal choice

    cheers al

    Hi Wehrmachtsman


    I also keep them in the scabbard, use no oil or wax and I display them in a class cabinet...

    here is a pic from my daggers

    i am planning on buying a display case cause they are stored in my dresden kriegsschule box

    hope you like am

    the little one is a restauration project

    scabbart was broken no rings attached
    and no grip [bought it for 40 euro]
    maker of it is e en f horster
    tip was broken of but i would love to see this piece complete again

    the silver knot is going to the luftwaffe dagger soon
    the sa dagger is from the thuringen district
    does some one know what a 2 and an anchor in a cirkel means unter the grip

    cheers

    Hi Wehrmachtsman


    The first model Luftwaffe dagger seems to be in good condition, where did you get it?
