    For several days I browse your forum, and I admit that I did not suspect that it could be so helpful and so rich in information and pictures. I came across on the SS dagger prototype. A few months ago, I sold the similar dagger for my friend. I found some pictures on the computer and I want to hear what you think about it, but the pictures are just a few I can not find the rest.
    In a word - it looks postwar to me. Best Regards, Fred

    Thankyou michal for posting this dagger and will be a useful resource. This is a modern repro..that lacks craftmanship and period materials used. I thought "Polend" was spelled "Poland" ?

    In fact, my mistake. I've never been good at spelling . And you hit the spot about drinking.

    Craig was never involved with this dagger, he just waited for John to die and added its sale to his resume.

    I found this thread today
    in my opinion, a late logo of ALCOSO.
    how does a late logo on an early prototype?
    I do not believe this dagger.
    is just my opinion!

    Last weekend i was at a militaria show and met an old collector friend who plays in the high price dagger league.
    He showed me a beautiful damast LW2 Krebs and after that a damast Honour Dagger of the NSKK (that one will probably end up on the cover of Wittmanns new SA book)
    He also showed me a SS dagger made by a German Jeweler as a private gift to a very well known SS Officer ( who commited suicide in a Bunker in Scandinavia)
    The grip lookes in appearance like the one in this thread, plain black with the same inlayed runes.
    These kind of daggers are very expensive and are thruly a leap of faith as there is no provenance like photo's in wear, all i can say about them is that they are very well made one of a kind daggers.

    For younger collectors and those not familiar with the story of these SS prototype daggers I attach scans of an article by Florida US gun dealer/collector John J Gabrick detailing the several prototype daggers in his personal collection. The SS prototype caused great excitement when it surfaced at a US gun show in the early 1970's and came to the attention of LTC(Ret) Thomas M Johnson, who subsequently featured this dagger in one of his early books.
    Apologies for the scans not being in page order, but the page numbers can be seen and Mr Gabrick's text of his story can easily be followed.

    This dagger has been talked about on this forum before I just can't find the post. I believe if memory serves me it became a beat up fest on Craig and his ethics .
