    Hi Sru...glad you made it here
    Your guess is correct its an all original Himmler dagger with a few bumps and bruises...but all that is needed to see in detail is all there

    The tip at some point had been broken off and was reshaped.
    Other than the missing chip in the grip...you have a great piece of history. You can compare market value on the internet..and its a nice chunk of change .

    Nice to see QC stamped number 6 beneath the lower guard.
    Finally quite desirable among SS dagger collectors is the anodized scabbard but has lost its protective laquer and is thinning.
    Very Nice and thankyou for sharing.

    Enjoy your stay and give a read through many threads here in this forum and throughout the website. The content here is exhaustive and endless. All questions can be answered within this website.

    Best Regards Larry

    Thanks for the quick responses guys, much appreciated for the input. Doing some research am I right to assume there were only 200ish of these made? What a rare find. My grandfather definitely knew what to take home! Ive seen what they're worth but I don't think I want to sell it just yet. It's such a fine piece of history it would be a shame to remove it from the family.

    The 200 count was assumed years ago as a period document surfaced and was posted in Ralf Siegerts SS reference pg 298 stating that more that was produced and was being stored away. This document was dated 1940.

    Yet these daggers are very early and very powerful in a historical aspect. Highly desirable on the same level as an SS Rohm dagger.
