    Default Two Daggers

    Dear Associates,

    I know very little in detail about Third Reich items, especially daggers.

    Recently, I aquired these two pieces as part of an estate lot, and have decided I would keep them as "one-ies". They appeal to me as they seem to be quite clean and untouched.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------

    The DLV knife seems to be missing the scabbard tip. The Luftwaffe dagger has some marks on the blade and the fittings seem "dull".

    My questions are as follows:

    1- Where on earth can I locate a scabbard tip for the DLV?

    2- Is there a way to clean the blade on the Luftwaffe? It is not badly pitted, and just seems to show some "staining". Also, are the fittings supposed to have that matte gray patina, or can they be cleaned?

    Richie, looks like a nice catch. The DLV parts is a very rare, and can be just found a fake parts without a problens, I'am allways buying some of the spare parts for the daggers, but newer met the DLV parts.
    Also, the luft dagger looks like better do not touch it, it's a cheap item and result of restoring will cost approx the same as a piece in a nice condition. I prefer to restore the rarest items.

    Hi Richie, both are nice original items.

    Try Tom Johnson for a replacement chape:

    Johnson Reference Books and Militaria

    The Luftwaffe dagger: don't touch the exterior, that is fine. But the blade might benefit from a clean using "Semi-Chrome" metal polish. This will take away some of the surface marks.

    Cheers, Ade.
