Some legitimate questions:
..... My only question of these daggers is for what reason someone who want to make replicas to use expensive materials to made them. These daggers are made of solid brass and have also a part of gold..... Also another question is if someone has the knowledge and materials to make good replicas why not make replicas of already known expensive daggers?
In the 1960's gold was $35.00 an ounce, and the one cent pennies were made from copper at a profit to the mint (brass is mostly copper).
In 1943 copper was heavily
conserved for the war effort to be used in making things like tanks, and submarines etc. Which is why in the late 1930's German blade makers makers went from using brass and nickel silver (which is 2/3 copper) fittings to substitute materials like iron, aluminum, and eventually zinc.
The "Krupp" daggers are: 1) not replicas - there were custom made creations made to deceive 2) they are not that well made IMO - showing poor workmanship. For example, like "certain
" well discussed daggers: they have machine (rotary) engraved signature blocks (the supposed Krupp factory "logo"). Which interestingly enough IMO was also done by an amateur. Who substituted the (relatively) easy to do swastika inside a circle, instead of using the more intricate actual Krupp logo - which is to the right. FP
