Hi buddies, I have seen for sale a de-Nazified Heer dagger without its blade manufacturing, apparently there are these examples because I've seen a few, but I wonder if their characteristics guys could let me know if you manufacture and also you know Daggers Heer without their manufacture in your resume, I have also understood that the Daggers with white handle are made of celluloid and not trolon as often the orange, I show the pictures I was taught to be sold, what you what do you think? Thank you very much for your help and solve my doubts.





I appreciate your comments.

If it is very possible to put double to ensure more blade with lining one, it is what appears from the photos since I do not have it in me to, thank you very much Heers68 for your answer, have you known other examples of Daggers Heer without manufacture? What these examples should? Thanks for your help.

Many examples that are unmarked, quite common to see Vassago. This one looks a lot like many examples I have seen with the generic guard, just need to see better close ups to know if the rest matches the guard or if this is a parts dagger. My first Heer many years ago was unmarked! Kevin.

Many thanks mate , I'm trying to unless all parts are original of the period of the Third Reich because you may get it at a good price , but first want to make sure that is totally original despite its lack of the swastika and lack of marking on his resume before purchasing .

So they believe that even a dagger without marking various parts is totally original of the Third Reich ?

Seems to be original parts to me but as Kevin says the pictures are non conclusive.
Probably somewhere around 5% of daggers are not with maker mark.
I really wouldn't bother with this unless it is very cheap and you have pity for it. The grip will be loose from when the plaster was broken from the tang when it was removed. No amount of washers will make it tight again. It's a wonder the celluloid didn't crack.
Could be refitted with fresh plaster to make a permanent repair.

Vassago, please be very careful, it seems to me -from these pics- that the blade has been severely shortened!
Compare blade length and scabbard length, especially in the last pic.

Generally, an unmarked, denazified dagger in low condition (see the rust spots eg. on grip ring) and perhaps shortened blade (has to be verified) might go in your region for only a few Euros because you could use only few parts (grip, pommel, scabbard).
Such a dagger is imho not in collectible condition any more.
Daggers in this condition, even marked and NOT denazified go for few bucks these days so if you donīt need a special part (which could be used as mentioned before) and the item is EXTREMELY cheap I personally would wait or look (there are several around) for another one even with personal low budget.
Regards,
