I always liked swords!

I show myself holding a luft many yrs ago!

So I will start with the Luft sword!

They are sharp! Come in nickle silver and alum.

Thanks for looking! I will!

Never get tired of your cased Luft display!

I have plenty of army swords,luft,police to show!

How about others!

Who is holding the SS swords!

One of the top collectors, John Pepera livrd 15 minutes from me!

I knew him before he had his 1st dagger!

He had 10 or more mint SS on the wall with knots seperate!

I have to see if I still have pics!

I don’t know how I’ve managed to stay away from swords. Started with daggers and branched out to dress bayonets but if I go down the sword rabbit hole, it won’t be good!

Great Diplo sword, that’s something you don’t see everyday.

The boards and sword or were they added!

Hanger?


Either way just a nice group!

Do you check the blade and treat it?

Sword was purchased with the hanger. I was not added. The shoulder boards were purchased separately and I have been looking for a matched pair of signals collar tabs!
Not sure what you mean by " checking the blade though. It does have the luftampt. Since it is a plated blade the only thing I do is occassionaly wipe with SS2.

Hello,

In order to participate to the thread, here is my SS officer degen ... Complete with the felt bag. Was found in a flat in Paris back in August 1944 when the city was liberated. I suppose the officer didn't have much time to gather his stuff before taking off.

That is an early nickel silver version with no markings. This piece can be dated around 1937-38 i suppose . Possibly a graduated former student of a SS-junkerschule ... In good condition !! Nickel silver is by far my fav material .... lovely greenish reflections in the metal color ... can't mistake it when you see it !

Hope you like it

Regards

K

Thanks Herman

Will be showing more of Georges stuff!

Hope some more get shown!

Question

With so many organizations having swords

Luft,Army,Police,SS Prison,Diplomat,Navy and the list is longer I bet!

Why no SA swords! Rad and who else?

And why were some army that say George is showing so beautiful!

The design of many are just stunning!


I had the sword book many yrs ago! Maybe answers are in book!

And for you real die hards! Is there any meaning in Lion heads,panther,etc!

Etched ones,who made the nicest?

Just food for thought on discussion!

Here are a few German Imperial Artillery swords.

Dating from a time when damast steel and/or triple etched blades were not extremely rare and gilding was qualitative and durable!
