I thought it would be nice to see photos of swords, daggers, bayonets, knives in wear. If you have any, please post them.

I will start off with a photo from my wedding portrait collection. A nice pic of a Lufwaffe first model dagger in wear.

Cheers,

Larry

Thanks Paul, I hope to see other members post some photos as well.

The dagger I posted in the first photo is the DLV (Deutscher Luftsport-Verband) version which is longer than the 1st pattern Luftwaffe dagger.

Here is a photo of the 1st pattern Luftwaffe dagger in wear.

Cheers,

Larry

Hi Larry,

I´m not a collector of daggers, but I´ll show some pictures.

Unfortunately I don´t know the right english terms, so I only

let pictures speak.

Wonderful selection of photos Gentlemen. Some types I have not seen before. Andreas, the knife worn by the HJ Fuhrer I am not familiar with, is it standard issue?

Heer dagger.

Cheers,

Larry

Hi Larry,

the knife is the so called HJ - Führerdoch, very rare and I´ve never had

one in my hands.

I think father and son. The old man is wearing an IOD alter Art.

A rare photo, Love the wedding with swords portrait. I have been told that photographers supplied swords as props to be used in photos.

Very nice HJ photos, the Reiter-HJ is very nice. What is the medal above the Sport Badge?

Kreigsmarine dagger.

Cheers,

Larry

Government Official/Diplomatic dagger.

The man in the middle is Kreisleiter of Berent Johannes Affeld and the Landrat is Heinz Hesemann.

In the Kriegsmarine was customary to have a Totenwache (watching over a dead shipmate) when a shipmate died. The body was covered by the flag and lied in state on the quarterdeck with an honor guard of two sailors with drawn bayonets (in the Marine HJ, with drawn Fahrtenmesser/knives) but no rifles.

Two photos of a Totenwache, on board the sailing school ship Horst Wessel, and on the Cruiser Emden.

Outstanding photos! Keep them coming.

DLV/NSFK knife. The DLV was replaced by the NSFK in April, 1937. The same knife was used by both organisations.
