    Why there is a waffenampt on the blade, I have no idea. But the dagger looks to be a real one, however, the photos are atrocious.........

    Can you tell me the mileage on this baby? No, didn't think so. That's how your pictures come across, sorry to say........

    Anyway........welcome

    Hi John..only in regards to the waffenamt..not all 2nd Luft daggers had the waffenamt stamping..but Paul Weyersburg examples that I have seen and also Tom Wittmann has identified do exist.
    Paul Weyersburg also stamped their 1st Luft daggers as did Eickhorn..but yet..Eickhorn did not waffen stamp their 2nd Lufts. Not sure of the reasoning why Eickhorn stopped this practice after 1937.

    Correct me Luft collectors if I am wrong..I see only two, 2nd Luft producers who wafffen stamped their blades..Weyersburg and SMF.

    As far as the rest of the dagger..I agree the flash tends to wash out the detail in over brightness. Regards Larry

    Edit: Thread moved to Luftwaffe dagger forum and title changed to accommodate dagger type.

    Thanks Larry, I did not know that! And in all my years of collecting, and dealing, I have never had one with an ampt

    sorry for the picture quality.
    thank you for this information.
    This dagger is indeed genuine and in addition has that APMT waffen, she was found in Strasbourg / Alsace / France.

    While the dagger is an Officer's model dagger (Offizierdolch), in keeping with period traditions the Luftwaffe acceptance marking signified that the dagger was Luftwaffe property (not universal it was limited to those who were given Luftwaffe contracts like other Luftwaffe only arms/accessories contracts) intended for the use of those such as senior NCO's who could wear the officer's knot because of their rank. Said individuals not being given an allowance for uniforms/other items like officers. This also applied to the (so-called 1st model) Flyers Daggers (Fleigerdolch). With a circa 1940 order also extending the privilege of wearing the Offizierdolch to those lower ranks without the knot who had flying status.

    PS: As a side note, there was some stiff resistance to the facts of the matter at one time by those who believed that all of the "personalized" government property Luftwaffe daggers then in circulation were not legitimate period items. And even some well known U.S. dealers were known to sell government property daggers as belonging to well known historical Officers/individuals - that was without anything factual to backup their supposed provenance in order to increase the sales price.

    Lovely dagger Seppi , exactly the same features as a Paul Weyersberg example i have , including the stickbird ampt . I love the colour tone changes on the grip and the wear from use to the high spots on the fittings . Paul Weyersberg is my favourite manufacturer and they are highly regarded for their top quality plated blades , of which yours is one
    Thanks for showing it.
    REGARDS AL
