    Default Kriegsmarine dagger - "E. Bonsmann Solingen" maker marked - reproduction.

    Hi, I don't see a specific thread for KM reproductions so am just posting a few pictures of this one as a reference. I don't think it would fool any dagger collectors (!) but perhaps a casual non-dagger collector, or someone starting in the hobby.

    I acquired it from a (non-dagger) militaria dealer who bought it as real and looking online I can see they have sold as real at auction...

    I wonder if it's a post-war German copy (E. Bonsmann made daggers I believe, just not KM daggers?) or 'Far Eastern' origin. Someone seems to have made a little effort with it hence it has apparently fooled some.

    Regards, Paul

    Hi Paul...I would say if it is not on the Pinned thread on Kriegsmarine producers ...which both Oleg and Danny have contributed to many threads to...I would say the producer logo is not correct.

    Wait for Oleg or Danny and some other Kriegsmarine collectors to chime in... possibilities do exist in this hobby ...but this is one that is not seen.

    Regards Larry

    Thank-you Larry. I just thought it would be good to put an online reference for this one for new collectors as I couldn't find one myself.

    Best regards, Paul

    Larry he started the thread with a sticky for copies, as this is exactly what it is, so there is no need to add this maker to the list of navy producers.

    Thank-you all for taking a look.

    Hopefully new collectors can use this as a definitive verdict on this particular copy.

    I bought this as a copy but intend to acquire an original in the future. I'm not really a dagger collector, more uniforms and headgear, but have always found the KM dagger in particular to be a very appealing design.

    Best regards, Paul

    Good Morning Bermuda Traveler ....I can not see any sticky threads for Kriegsmarine Dagger copies...within the few sticky threads posted above. If there is one ..I would like to post "that" sticky thread " separately " including it with the rest of the sticky threads.
    Please someone show me where this is so I can include it within this Sub Forum.

    Regards Larry
