    The Luft was totally independent from the army and had their own procedures. Inspectors where placed in factories to ensure quality control but as I understand it, only on pre-1939 assembled Luft daggers ( war effort became more of a priority ) and probably only on a batch basis rather than mainstream.
    The inspectors probably just pulled batches from production, earmarked them for the Luftwaffe, tested, bench-marked and stamped. I also remember reading years ago that factory issued and privately purchased destined blades, had some say in which blades where Waffen-amt but no idea how that would have worked or how true it is. Good question though Larry!.

    Very nice SMF this one has held its plating better then most. Of course all the army blades will be grained and not nickel plated. Superior example!
