    That's interesting Alcoso dagger.
    Can I ask what material is the grip? Plaster or wood core celluloid ?

    Regards

    The grip on this dagger is made of Galalith, also called "Milkstone". It was produced by interaction of casein and formaldehyde. Because the material is in fact biodegradable, it does not stand up well to time. The surface crazing is common. This material was used much more frequently on Heer dagger grips than Luftwaffe.

    Hello, Wolfgang is right, grip cracking is "dramatic" reaction to light. Grip is off white color, almost yellow in some places. It is very interesting to see reaction of this material.

    Hello friends, this is my first Third Reich dagger! It is very nice wartime produced C. Eickhorn dagger. Dagger show a lot of usage during the period. Factory applications to corssguard and pommel is gone to time, but dagger still looks good and I like it too much, because this is my first dagger. Hope you like photos and dagger too, despite its condition. This is textbook Eickhorn example with portepe and hanger. Regards peter

    Hello friends, here is my next lutwaffe dagger - unmarked late war produced example with generic parts. Dagger is in very nice untouched condition - left as it is since the war. Scabbard is W.K.C. type, heavily silver-plated. Swastika on pommel seems to be gilded - please notice that pommel and crossguard had gold (nicotine) patination also. Sometimes, when I took dagger before I go sleep, I inspect dagger and think about it, if it is gilded gold general dagger This is my favorite luftwaffe dagger, I love it. Grip has interesting wood core. Please enjoy photos. Regards Peter

    Hi Peter,
    That's a very nice collection of luftwaffe daggers! You are absolutely right about your WKC dagger. A rare variation indeed Also the Eickhorn with the gilded pommel and the small stamped trademark is not seen too often.

    Hello friends, here is another dagger from my Luftwaffe collection - very nice untouched 2nd. model Luftwaffe dagger made by Alexander Werke, Solingen. This daggers are quite rare and hard to find, so I was very lucky when I find this one. Dagger it self is totally textbook late war produced AWS example, with typical Alcoso "round" scabbard except one center headless screw - it is unusual, and is anomaly to me. Daggers is complete with to the piece hanger and knot. I like this late war produced examples, with some unusual aspects. Regards Peter

    Hello, my last addition into this tread is Aluminium Luftwaffe sword made by SMF, Solingen. Sword is not in best condition, but it is very nice, gilding on pommel are almost worn off, but on crossguard is gilding still visible. Leather hanger is damaged, but repaired carefully, scabbard leather covering on bottom too. Sword was found by homeless in trash. Hope you enjoy photos. Regards Peter

    Found in the trash??????...............Thank God it has been rescued and posted here for all to admire. It has a few bumps and bruises..but these are common expectations. A thought pops up once in awhile when I leave to go to work on those mornings when trash collection is that day..and makes me wonder how many of those cans and boxes just might have one of these neglected beauties in them...only to be buried in a trash dump..and then found by members like our own..." GIZMO8Z" of NY.

    A great rescue Peter....and welcomed on this thread Regards Larry
