    These are in my collection. Both pretty rare. Both have 1st type SMF crossguards, slant grips, tapered tangs, and all early parts. This maker used parts they bought from others and as far as I can see they didn't make any past the initial 1935 production date. Why? Obviously they went to other endeavors.

    Maker marks on these beauties. Axt und Hauerfabrik.

    Couldn't agree more, for some reason (and I think this is true for most collectors) I collect in quantity. I have 7 unmarked EK's at the moment, do I want more of them? Offcourse!!!

    An Axt Army dagger is a pretty rare sight. Two of them together is quite something in my experience. Both are consistent with early parts, slant grips, and tapered tangs on blades. Guess you were the only one that caught the rarity issue...
