    Back to the dagger.....I predict that even in this economy THAT dagger will not last long. I believe it comes with the original factory Eickhorn issued paper sack with the word 'Mit Widmund' stamped in red. (With Dedication) There is only one other Himmler dagger That I know of that has survived with it's original sack.
    For the guy with deep pockets- this ones a No Brainer.
    Your not going to find a more complete example in that condition IMHO.

    Witty does get the prime daggers. He's a great dealer, who's taken much time with even beginning collectors, and who had contributed a huge amount of knowledge to the dagger community with his outstanding series of 'Exploring the German Dagger' books.

    After looking and studying these pictures of this dagger I don't think this grip originally belonged to this dagger.

    Reason:
    First of all the poor fitting grip/guards but more important the SS-button.
    This type is not the correct type that was used by Eickhorn.
    Now, I know that some makers used different buttons from time to time cause of empty stock but I don't believe this could have been the case for these Himmler daggers.
    There weren't a lot of these daggers made in comparison with the other standard M33's and they also weren't distributed.
    I cannot imagine that suddenly there was an empty stock during the production of these daggers.
    Anyway, I never saw another Himmler dagger with this kind of SS-runes before.
    Eickhorn, as we all know, used very specific SS-runes on their grips.

    This dagger may look very nice but imo the grip was swapped which makes it a parts dagger.

    The top guard in the first post does look a bit disheveled and would have to agree on the grip now that Im looking at it.

    Below is a sneak peek pic of a Himmler inscription grip that comes from a private collection. I will be posting the rest of the photos soon.

    Likewise. The dagger was stated to have been "cleaned". But from my own experiences over time I've seen tables and tables of daggers that had "tune ups" ranging from just removing some dirt and grease to minor overhauls that included using parts from other daggers and sometimes with bags (that did not always match up to the daggers). All stated to be factory originals. So maybe somebody put away his (used) dagger in it's factory bag when it was taken out of service, but that can't really be determined from the pictures posted so far. But with that said, from my own perspective I am not comfortable with it being a 100% OEM original example - which for my own tastes would drastically affect both the desirability and price.
