the stamp on the blade looks bad
What is the name on the maker logo?,, and could you get a better photo of it? Regards Larry
The stamp on the blade is WMW over WAFFEN
I think it is a good one. A very uncommon maker, aka Max Weyersberg.
2nd Luftwaffe Dagger WMW Waffen
Welcome to VictoryMilitaria.com - ROUGH WMW WAFFEN SECOND MODEL LUFT DAGGER WITH HANGERS (Powered by CubeCart)
Looks fine to me IMO! I like the rare makers mark. I had an army dagger that said 'WAFFEN' but it was etched and if I remember correctly it was made by 'Siegfried'. Also, you may want to find a replacement handle due to yours being chipped.
Nice original dagger for the price.
Thanks for all your replies will buy along with other items I have posted. Where would I find an original replacement grip?
A few issues here:
The hangers are not Luftwaffe but are Heer Officers daggers hangers.
By replacing the chipped grip it would become yet another messed with parts dagger.
If you want some perfect, buy an item in that condition and don't mess with something original, but damaged.
