    Default Luftwaffe 2nd pattern dagger by SMF.

    Just purchased today. I have a few daggers, bayonets and a couple swords in my collection but I'm not specifically a blade collector. However, when a good friend offered to part with this little gem I had to pick it up. The gilt swastikas on the pommel put it over the top for me and I also find the "Seated King" logo of Solinger Metallwaffenfabrik to be pretty cool. Also has the Waffenamt stamp. Definitely not an over the top piece by the standards of this forum, but thought I'd share it anyway.

    Thanks Larry. And happy to oblige. I was playing with Riker mounts so you're going to get a little backdrop.

    The gilted Swazi on that does make it POP!
    Beautiful coloring on the grip. Add the hanger and you got a great set right there!

    Nice one Todd. Great pickup.

    Larry: I guess your looking for a different "toning" of the grip?
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    Hi Michael...more looking to see if it was one that I had in my collection years ago as it looks almost identical to the one I had except the toning of the grip on Todds example has a slight tinge more or red tinge mixed into the pumpkin color which is far more advanced in sun aging than mine which was pumpkin on the front and yellow orange on the reverse.

    Also mine had a minute chip on the 4th grip going from the bottom up. Todds example is perfect along with SMFs infamous gilting process that seem to hold tightly without flakeing off over time.

    Thankyou Todd for posting the extra photo..I miss mine dearly and kick myself to this day for letting it go.

    Regards Larry

    I'm sorry to tell you that your dagger has an Eickhorn scabbard. Here's my SMF 2nd model to compare your scabbardbands.

    Ah, I see now. Yeah, I bought this from a friend who is in his 70's and he has owned it easily 25, probably 30 years. So I know where it's been for a very long time.
