    As previously discussed in the other two threads:
    Cased Luftwaffe 2nd Pattern Denazified
    and here:
    Luftwaffe 2nd Pattern Dagger....Letter Opener

    I was hoping that adding this third example to my collection I would be able to make one great example, one good one and a dog rough one.
    As you can see this one isn't in the best of condition to start swapping any bits about,

    Here is a close up of the handle..It may still have the wire but chipped and damaged at both ends. What a lovely colour though>

    The advertising on this blade is 'BESMER TEPPICHE' which if my gin soaked memory serves me well is Besmer Carpets?

    Very Nice pick ups Saladin. Could you post a photo of that inscription..it is odd that a Carpet business would have their name on the blade. It is difficult to connect the Army with a carpet co. Photos please when you get a chance. Regards Larry

    Hi Saladin...that was an interesting read...and these minatures are also called salesmens examples.. for officers looking to purchase a dagger type. I can not explain the Carpet inscription as I have never heard of this before..but possibly the Carpet company may have been a Donor to the War effort. Just speculation. Interesting item. Wait for other opinions. Regards Larry

    It was interesting Larry. It seems that Besmer gave away a few of these minis.
    I have pulled the picture off the site for reference.
    It is interesting to note the added red covering and the missing loop.

    It had a rough life this mini, but its an Original.
