Kriegsmarine dagger collection

Article about: Here's another Alcoso with hammered scabbard. This time with a beautiful orange grip. Typical for Alcoso are the hammered scabbard rings they used on all hammered scabbards. Again, like all

    Hi Danny, your Naval daggers are fantastic, I like orange grips on this type of daggers. You was certainly right, when you say we have same illness Now I have to purchase nice Naval dagger, because I just want to have one in my collection, but in same time my wife want nice gold ring to add into her collection

    Extremely nice and very advanced dagger collection and very valuable thread!

    Regards Peter

    Thanks a lot for your kind comments guys Here is the next one by Alcoso. This is a real early one with the so called flaming ball pommel. Right after this one the well known swastika pommel was introduced. Officers were allowed to keep their Weimar dagger but had to change the pommel. I love the grip of this one. It turned to a nice dark red colour over the years. The Alcoso trademark on this one is the first trademark this producer used.

    The next one I would like to show has a standard lightning bolt scabbard and a very nice orange grip. Very interesting to see the small differences when you compare this scabbard to a WKC of Eickhorn scabbard. The trademark is the second one, used by this producer on their navy daggers. I just love these patinaed portepees. You can tell it's been there forever.

    The next one is the variant with the hammared scabbard. At first glance every hammared scabbard looks the same but when you compare them with other makers, many differences are visible. Interesting to see that the gilding of the release button has completely disappeard. Typical for Alcoso is the "silver" look of the button after the gilding is gone. This detail is also visible on the Ivory grip Alcoso I posted earlier. I haven't seen this on any other maker. The trademark is the final one used by this maker. The letter "C" was replaced by the letter "W" after the owner of the factory (Alexander Coppel) was arrested by the germans because of his jewish descent.

    The first KM dagger i ever bought was a WKC, and i bought it from...YOU
    What you show here is fantastic
    You made excellent pics and provide us with great reference material.

    Now its easy to see how a real Flaming Ball pommel looks like, see the dots in some of the flames in a pattern.
    They never are this way on the tonns of fakes that hit the market these days.

    Im sure you gonna show us also the differences between pre-war/war and Post war logo's of a maker who produced in wartime and postwar
    This is a great tread, and thx for all the effort, its a lot of work to arrange all the pics in the way you make them.
    Crisp, detailed pics, Thx again Danny!!

    Ger

    btw: its like Ade says, i wear my like button out, all pieces deserve one.....
