militaria item NSKK dirk, RZM marked M7/68
- German
This is the SA dirk 1933 pattern, modified with a black finish to the scabbard by order of Korpsfuhrer Huhnlein in 1936. The RZM code stands for the firm Lauterjung & Co of Solingen. The NSSK were the motorised arm of the SA, providing it with truck and motorcycle elements, co-ordinating training programmes with the Wehrmacht in war time.

militaria item Eickhorn trench knife
- German
This is a classic Eickhorn piece with the back-to-back squirrel trademark, which predates 1921 and is thus almost certainly a war time piece. It would have been a private purchase item and, indeed, there are many photographs showing officers wearing them in front line scenarios.

militaria item Dagger
- Bhutanese
This is an example of the daggers commonly found in Bhutan and Tibet, the latter being, on the whole, rather more elaborate. The blades are normally made of meteoric iron, as opposed to wootz steel from India. These were brought back typically from British frontier expeditions in the 19th century.

militaria item Royal Navy fighting dirk
- British
This is likely to have been made towards the end of the American Revolutionary War (Peace of Paris, 1783) or during the early part of the Napoleonic Wars (starting 1793). This would have been carried by an RN officer or HEIC naval officer, and this example is interesting in having a particularly long (approx 26") blade.

militaria item Thames river-find dagger chape
- European
This bronze chape (3cm across at the top) would have been the bottom mount of a scabbard, probably for a dagger, typically one of the classic left-hand daggers so often seen on portraits of the period with the pommel peeping out on the other side to that of the rapier. Decoration on 17th-century pieces tends to be much simpler.

militaria item Paratroop gravity knife
The left-hand knife in the top and bottom photos (with the darker grip) is a real original. The right-hand example, as well as the two centre photos, are of a modern copy, almost certainly made in Pakistan. NB: the marlin spike has an RB number identical to the original and a Luftwaffe acceptance stamp as well.

testimonials

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.
