I've been collecting for 6 years now. At first I bought every german dagger I could get my hands on, SA, NSKK, Rad, DLV, DRK, you name it. Over the last few years I concentrated on Navy, Army and Luftwaffe daggers, with a special interest for early slant gripped heer daggers the last year or so. Last week I took the time to put all my navy daggers together and took some pictures. It's facinating how many different types there are. I realize I only have a small part of all the variations that exist but I enjoy them alot. I thought I'd share my pictures with you. Enjoy.

Danny

dr73,

Where to start..?

... great job putting together this collection of fine navy dirks, better than many museums.

Good photos of your latest addition, too, a textbook example. So nice to see the ivory in this prime, toned and well cared-for condition. A good ivory grip lends so much to the visual impact of these elegant imperial weapons, a great contrast next to the dark-blue and gold-tressed naval dress uniform. Finished off with an ornamental, hand-forged steel blade, it's easy to see why you gents collect navy patterns, they're simply classic.

Much continued good luck! wink

I'd like to show you my latest addition to my naval collection. It's a kriegsmarine dagger by R. Klaas, a very rare maker for this type of dagger. The plane blade is really nice. I also like the worn and patinated look of the portepee.

World Klaas collection of navy daggers – The Klass is fantastic and as you said very rare especially in a non etched configuration.

I think Bill really said it!

Have to love the ivory and the Imperial beauties!

You have really done a fine job of putting together this collection!

Just blown away with the beautiful collection!

I love those dark handles also! Almost red!

Ea dagger needs to be photographed and talked about!

Its that special of a collection!But thats what happens
when you become the caretaker of such peices!

So many collectors would be glad to own 1 of these beauties!
