    These are in Great condition Dave! No cracks or chipping! Those who collect these types know the grips become brittle over the years so displaying or handling them ,, one must be careful. I cant imagine the amount of tightness that was used to secure the pommel cap to the top of the grip without it cracking!! I would like to see a few ivory grips also. below are a few pics of a superb glass gripped army,, These photos and dagger belong to GDC member "Spock" which for reference purposes I would like to take a closer look at the grip itself. You will see in the 3rd photo the little red specks within the glass which is a common sight with these type grips. There are color variances in these grips as you can see in Daves and Spocks examples. A rarity to find these and worth alot more money. Regards Larry

    Hello
    I am new to the forum. I found it some time ago, but then lost track of it. It seems like a friendly place, and it is always a pleasure to share with others who hold the same interests.
    I have been collecting for many years, but now have reduced my field to edged weapons and awards of pre 1945 Germany. I am not very computer literate, so it took a while to figure out how to post photos. I have photographed only a small portion of my collection, but I am working on cataloging my items as time permits. It is a pleasure to share some of the photos, and I hope I can contribute to the forum in other ways in the future.

    Here are two of my glass gripped Heer daggers. The first is a Holler, the second a Max Weyersberg. Larry is absolutely correct, these are extremely difficult to find in undamaged condition. It is a disadvantage when collecting only undamaged items.

    As Larry requested, here are some ivory grips.
    First an Alcoso "Eisenkopf", dagger with iron guard. The grip is cracked, but to me that is ok with ivory grips.

    Next another Alcoso "Slant Grip". These are extremely rare. The Ivory has more patina than the photographs show, but fortunately no cracks.

    And finally a Voos with etched blade. Unfortunately the closeup of the grip, and the composite photo with other here daggers are all I have for now. This grip is in fine condition, with minimal discolouration.

    I love ivory grips. It would be great to see some additional photos posted. It is always a joy to see these things.
