Collectors

Do you think its time for some Luftwaffe show time!

As we share on german daggers the amazing items we all collect or had, the Luftwaffe
pieces really stand out!


Now we have much to show and discuss!

Why not have fun and share items,engraved,colors,silver,alum,swords,daggers, display peices you add for flavor of a display!

Hangers,deluxe.plain jane,knots, hangers, bagged and tagged for the select few that have them!

Marked,items and anything you care to share!


Whats the best reference book on luft? Was it Tom W or T. Johnsons or who?

Where do you find your info!


Who has Knights Cross winner, items? Generals swords,minatures, you get the idea!


Favorite makers! Time periods,

I know I have never had problem selling a nice Luft item! Discuss prices! Most Lufts are still in collectors range!

What dealers sell the nice ones?


You get the fun of show and tell and the learning!


Thanks for looking and showing collectors! Any Generals?

Your like a detective in the finding of these treasures!

Makers many of us have never seen or found!

Being one who has found and is finding so many makers!

Do you see or observe anything different in makers material or quirks into these items!

Or do they all follow a pattern in the type!

Like possible gilding? handle material? engraving?


Unlocking the mystery of third reich edgeweapon making!

How many makers do you think made the lufts?

Did these makers make 1st lufts!

Have new makers been found that were unknown since TW's book?


Thanks

PVON

I only have 1 luft type 2 dagger left but its one of the hardest to find.
Its the earliest production E.Pack made, guard and pommel with lots of handwork on it are made of aluminium but the scabbard has silvered messing scabbardbands!
It bears the first style E.Pack logo 1935-36, its beautifully etched on a mint blade.
Enjoy this gem, i love it

Cheers

Now that is one beautiful 2nd Luft dagger. With a super set of hangers, and a awesome belt loop.
The grip color is wonderful, I'm sure better once in hand.
Nothing to upgrade there.
Thanks for showing
