    Hey larry, I thought I read (angolias sword book?) he designed the Luftwaffe sword and DLV (55cm to us collectors) so not the first pattern.
    The DLV was then redesigned shorter for practical reasons and then approved by him for wear. Then as precious materials got tighter somebody else had the idea to move onto aluminium!

    But originally goering sketched a powerful looking medieval sword and added the swaz's?

    emailed big W, hoping to get a reply!
    Hi Mattty sounds great if you can get more information from TW. If you can find that page in the Angolia book and post anything relevant that would support it .....that would be great also . Regards Larry

    Well I spoke to Tom and he seems to think nobody knows for sure, but he said it would be hard to believe that Hermann did not have any input in the design of the sword. He also meantioned about the rarely-seen DLV sword which was the predecessor of the Luftwaffe Sword, of which Hermann wore.

    I wont copy the email, but it appears its a case of lack of evidence neither for or against.

    I know for sure I read it somewhere, but whether it was surmised I don't know. Until proven otherwise I think il keep with my original theory.
