    Larry, if I understand the question well.
    The question was - how to sale these product to U.S. soldier. (For B/A daggers.)
    Normally, a little bit gothic letters, the simbolic beginning of the war in 1939, and these type of dagger becomes alluring for U.S. soldier, as a trophy.
    Basically all for the money.

    But only Solingen stamp was used in many period unmarked dress bayonet.

    It is a follow on thread from this one> WKC Army

    Be warned though, we were arguing in that one too . One thing we do both agree on though, is that B&A daggers are post war. Or at least I hope we do .

    Im about as confused as you! So ok, one of you are saying the b&w blade is wartime, the other is saying its post war?

    Well, I was always led to beleave it was post war. What does wittmans army book say? I haven't got a copy.

    Im still confused though?

    From what Jon Degens is saying as I don't have any fire arms makers reference is that Bolte & Anschutz put these trinkets together to keep their financial head above water. B&A does not appear in any period cutlery references I have except the name Anschutz appearing as JG. Anschutz AG Germaniawerk Zella Mehlis in Thuringia. I am led to believe now that B&A attached themselves to each other and combine their capital to survive. Which in turn they were a souvenir store operation.
    Also included is another Anschutz name of Albin Anschutz of the same Zella Mehlis area... Producing tools hammers and tongs.

    Larry,
    JG Anschutz ( still in business today ) and Bolte and Anschutz were different firms I believe, although both manufactured firearms up until 1945 and both based in Mehla Zellis. There was probably some family connection though.

    Matty,
    I think both myself and Rancid agree that B&A was post war, the disagreement was over the above WKC dagger and how it ended up matched with a B&A blade. Not that it really matters !.

    Nothing to do with this discussion, just a little note to Rancid66, and those who often make this error.
    These daggers are not Herr daggers, but Heer daggers. Herr = Mister, also referencing God, but nothing to do with edged weapons.
    Just a pet peeve of mine.
