Here is a recent find I am very happy with and needed for the Slant collection.. I have seen quite a few from Sielheimer but none other with these nicely hand enhanced fittings so I jumped on it. Like your opinions on the origins of these fittings, I have my idea's and I would appreciate you learned fellows feedback! Best, Kevin

It is more than nice. It is awesome! Still missing a nice Seilheimer from my early Heir collection.
Congrats Kevin, I love the look of the dagger, especially the eagle! And the crossgrainig is just beautiful.

Kevin that is a true beauty with one of a kind fittings!
I love that mix of a Pack type 2 body and that Weyersberg head, that lazy eye is perfectly executed.
This one is a gem in every early Heer dagger collection.

Appreciate that Ger! I have always wanted a PS for my early collection but one does tire of the typical unenhanced Pack 1st guard usually seen with small volume makers of initial slant gripped Heers... if it is possible to get bored of slants! LOL smile Variations like this are a pleasure! Best, Kevin.

Exactly my thoughts!
I dont get very excited seeing a Pack 1 guard when its not on a Pack dagger, although i most admitt i recently bought a lovely Gustav Spitzer with Pack fittings, the lovely grip and the great blade with dark crisp logo triggered me.

The hand enhancement on fittings of early ones made by:(for example) Pack, Puma, WKC, Voos, Henckels, Weyersberg and Klaas are what we are looking for smile
Seeing this beauty gives hope for the future as this is the second "new discovered" guard that i have seen within a year!!

This gem would fit in any collection.

Ger

Kevin beautiful slant and crossguard. I have always admired this dagger in Wittmann,s book. Great dagger for your army collection this one has all the bells and whistles. Look forward to seeing pictures of your other max acquisitions.

Correction - This dagger is not in Wittmann,s book ! Great slant by a super hard to find maker.
