    Hello friends,
    Ralph - Anton Wingen Jr. is my favorite marker too, but I only have this one dagger from this small company. I wish to own early example with slant grip, but it is really hard to find... and late too
    Larry - thanks a lot for your comment, it is really good to hear that you and this forum appreciate my thread with army daggers. I will continue to post dagger - only three left - but they are also very interesting examples. I have also six Luftwaffe dagger, so I can post pictures of them too, but I have to start new thread in Luftwaffe section.

    Regards Peter

    Hello, dear friends, here is another dagger from my collection. This dagger is textbook W.K.C. example despite it has unmarked blade. Dagger is quipped with last 3rd. style crossguard. Pommel, crossguard and scabbard are heavily silver plated. Scabbard is typical W.K.C.īs piece, - please notice oval-shaped throat opening. It is interesting for this producer, that collectors on todayīs marked can observe a lot of examples with unmarked blades, these examples were probably sell by shops with uniforms - unmarked blade is nothing unusual. Despite this fact, we have many books and lot of web-sides and forums, still some idiots can say that "unmarked daggers are Spanish copy, because each dagger from Third Reich must have marker mark" So donīt believe them - STUDY!
    Crossguard has also very nice personalization "WS". Dagger is with authentic knot.

    Thanks for your comments! And Larry thanks for pinned my thread on the top!

    Hope you will like photos.

    Regards Peter

    Hello friends, here is another army dagger from my collection - Wehrmacht officer dagger by wMw Waffen. A lot of collector know this small but very popular producer, Max Weyersberg didnīt produce daggers in large numbers, so each dagger is RARE and hard to find. Dagger which I show to you is very interesting - wMw Waffen used mostly Generic A crosguard, but this dagger has Generic B crosguard and pomel - I never saw dagger made by wMw Waffen with Generic B fittings. What is also interesting on this dagger is it marker mark - logo is stamped VERTICALLY and NOT horizontally!!! I never saw dagger made by wMw with vertically stamped logo - only 1st. model Luftwaffe daggers, but never Wehrmacht daggers - so if you have any experience with this producer, please let me know, I will certainly appreciated your opinion.
    Grip of this dagger is almost in red color and in obverse it has still rest of yellow tones. Scabbard is also generic, throat is retained with headless screws.
    Dagger is complete with to the piece very interesting "gold" hangers and knot. Dagger is left in untouched state, never been cleaned or took apart.
    Hope you will like photos! Thanks for your comments about this interesting dagger.
    Regards Peter

    Default Re: Wehrmacht daggers collection

    Hello, dear friends here is another Wehrmacht dagger from my humble collection - in my opinion very rare Gerb. Heller dagger. This producer is very popular because of itīs funny mark. Fittings of dagger are heavily silver-plated, pommel is typical Heller product and what is interesting on this pommel? There are no acorns between oak leaf!!! Crossguard is 1st. E. Pack - Heller probably purchase some parts from E. Pack company. Blade is nickel-plated and marked with balloon seller, which is looking for customers it also wear small hat on head - I donīt know why Heller choose this type of mark, but it is certainly funny! Scabbard is Eickhorn piece, but belongs to this dagger.

    I like Hellerīs army daggers, because this type of daggers show a lot of handword and very good quality.

    I hope you like photos!

    Regards Peter

    Hello friends, here is my last army officer dagger made by H. Kolping. Dagger is in untouched condition, never been apart or cleaned. Crossguard is generic A type, very often used by this producer. Silvering is very nice and all on place. Hans Kolping did very nice work! Scabbard is generic type with no screws on throat - this is also typical for this producer. Grip of this dagger is outstanding! With its little cracks looks almost like ivory. Blade is marked with H. Kolping mark - popular beer mug
    Dagger is complete with to the piece hanger and knot.
    2nd. model Luftwaffe dagger is only to compare grips. These last three photos are in high resolution, so just zoom them if you want

    Hope you like photos! And thanks for all comments

    Best regards Peter

    Beautiful Peter..this is a great thread of reference. I like the varied Pommel enhancings we see per maker...some of these pommels were hand enhanced at an extra cost. Rare to see grip also. Regards Larry

    Great daggers Peter and thx for showing and sharing them with us here,

    from what material is the white grip made?
    It looks like the late plastic over wood grip.
    Am I correct?

    Cheers,
    Ger

    Hi, Gerrit thanks for your comment. It is very hard to guess, if the grip has wood core. In this case 2nd. model Huftwaffe dagger has standard celluloid grip, without any core - I mean wood or another. I know it because I took the dagger apart several years ago. And grip is really heavy. If you want to see wood core dagger I show one here: Luftwaffe daggers collection - unmarked example - very similar Another plaster filed grip, which has crack, so you can see material under cover is here: Luftwaffe daggers collection - AWS marked dagger.

    I never took apart H. Kolping dagger, so I canīt be totally sure, but it is same grip like Luftwaffe dagger - my opinion is that this grip is also celluloid not plaster filed. Many times it is necessary to inspect dagger by hands, but sometimes took apart dagger. Regards Peter
