Diplomatic/Government,

Some say the most beautiful daggers!

I can't say I have had many!

But a few!

Now I bet some of you have them wrapped,tagged and bagged!


Lets see some and your thoughts!

I didn't develop an appreciation for these daggers early on but over time saw their graceful lines and good construction.

The tag came separately but I thought it appropriate on this one.

It's not easy to tell but the knot is the correct smaller dimension type.

Here's something else in the same vein. Not nearly as much patina as the Eick GO but it was still something to behold.

Nice comparison of the differences between an Alcoso Diplo and an Eickhorn GO. I've found both of these examples to be of the highest quality in design and also in finishing.

Have shown this pic already elsewhere but it is fitting in this thread too: Two EICKHORNS. So similar, so different.

ALCOSO with rare true YELLOW (produced as such, not artificially aged!) grip. Was brought to me by my unforgettable friend Bill Laret.

Not to forget the hangers (these are still not all)! I think you can see now that gov/diplo dagers are very special section for me. And even when they look alike not any is like the other.
Regards,

Hello Billy G., easy to recognize when you know what to look for. A specail feature which up to now I have seen only with diplo portepees. Compare to "normal" portepees, you will see.

@pvon, a diplomat´s degen would be a very far aim I will not get any more.

Unfortunately none of my diplos or govs is bagged and tagged. I have seen such a gem only once in my life at a german show.

Regards,

Yes just a outstanding group of daggers!

Thanks to all showing!


Hangers! Knots are all very hard to find or still attached to

Its impressive to see collectors!

Horst

Regards,

Wotan,
As you know, the hangers are harder to find than the daggers. The proper portapees even harder.
Congrats ! Great collection.
