Collectors

Does the color of a handle make a difference!

I know some collect by maker,type,early,late.

Material used for handle! Condition!

I my self are drawn to the color!

Of course slants and that deep orange, pumpkin orange,red,yellow.pure white!

Very pleasing to the eye!

The so called frozen juice,glass type! A term that everyone knows what your talking about
even if not proper term!

Does color increase value? Some say yes and some say no!


For me I think it does! I know I would pay more if I really liked it!

I know,urban myth of black handles,funeral,painted etc!

Makes the whole thing interesting doesn't it!


Your thoughts!

Well? I have been doing this for about 20 years. OR should I say ONLY 20 years.
If a person is not going to pay extra for a special grip on a dagger, they will probably never have a special dagger, not color, not glass, not juice, not anything.
To me, on Luft, Heer, or Kreigs daggers, it's all about the grip. The color, the fit, the material.
BUT, THATS ONLY ME. What the hell do I know.
Nice daggers P

Now there's proof.
Nothing wrong with the Imperial Navy at all, but the one on the right and left put it to shame for me.
The one on the right is a KILLER.

Hi Ed

How about these that were Bob C from this forum!

He allowed me some pics!

Now I get bored! Or should I say got bored with just plain jane army etc!

Don't get me wrong,I will take them and be happy!

But some thing about these daggers with that color
just rings the bell!

Ivory, Bone, don't even go there, a step up from color, or several steps up.

Seany, oh yea!!! RED, sweet. And yes the glass ones.
To me, the grip is the first thing I look for.
Very nice guys, thanks.

I totally agree that a grip color makes a difference. I've only got 3 Armys and noticed that they're all different. A nice grip always makes a presentation pop.

Boy! If those are your only Army's, you have a heck of a search for number four.
Those are totally awesome daggers. You did well.
Thanks for sharing.
All are spectacular.

Thanks Paul and Ed! From the left, Plumacher, Voos and Axt & Hauerfabrik.

The Plümacher was my first Army, minty condition and came to me from the vet’s daughter. Can’t really get better than that as a new collector. I doubt I’ll ever sell it.

The others are just ones I picked up and also didn’t want to let go. Had a few other slant grips that I sold off last year, they didn’t tweak me like these do.
