    Thank you for great answer Wolfgang and Peter. I would probably not look after a black grip when this is like my grandfather found it during the war. I starts to get more and more interested in the WW2 and hope to find more items at my now grandmother place, since they where close to the germans during the war. On the other hand you have a very nice collection!



    Regards Gaute.

    Really great picture wolfgang, your piccys always look great. Im jealous of ur photographic ability and ur collection

    Gaute, id leave your dagger as found. Some people like the mixed parts thing as it tells a story on its own but of course its up to you.

    Peter, Like you ive always liked the white/cream handled daggers, Ive always considered them to be look more elegant..... like ivory I suppose.

    Thx Peter for showing your Lufts here.
    SMF ALU sword easily loose their gilding on the sunwheels.
    I have had a totaly mint LW sword with gilt worn off for 50 % or more,while the rest of the sword was mint.
    I guess a bit to enthousiastic with rubbing by the owner or vet, made the gilt washes off easily.
    Regards,
    Ger

    For lucabrnroma: Hi, donīt apologize you show to us very nice daggers! It is very nice to see outstanding daggers! Personalization on scabbard make it also nice. Thanks for showing them to us, and it is also honor for me, because you add them into "my" thread

    Hi Ger, this gilding on LW swords or daggers did not hold well, if you compare this sword to another dagger 1st. model in this thread you will see that on pommel is almost all gilding gone too It is interesting fact that almost everybody thinks that German daggers are perfect, but now we see, sometimes they are not

    Hello to all, it was a very long time, but here is my latest addition into my Luftwaffe daggerīs collection. It is very nice early Luftwaffe dagger made by Alexander Coopel Solingen, dagger is in good condition, pommel has some extra handwork on oak leafs and Swastika. Swastika looks to be gilded, but all gilding was lost during the long time. Grip is very nice yellow-orange color and has spring copper wire. Crossguard is textbook Alcoso, it is interesting to note, that this crossguard is smaller than others. Blade is in nice condition with visible famous mark. Blade is textbook Alcoso, with early aluminum scabbard rings. Whole dagger is in untouched condition and believe me it cost me 265 € - it is nice price Photos are taken by my mobile phone, because my camera is broken sorry for that.

    Best regard

    Peter

    Hi Larry, I believe Iīm not pas I just have a lot of work, but for now I made a deal with my wife, I can be on Internet each evening half hour, but only when all my homeworks are finish so now I will be certainly active on forum again - I promise it to you!

    I like this dagger also, we do not see early Alcoso Luftwaffe very often, I also find one on Tomīs Luftwaffe book, so there can be one to compare


    Best regards

    Peter
