    Christopher550,

    So you want to do your own comparison?  Well here goes.  Here is a link to a web site that compares original and fake/repro Third Reich daggers.  https://www.realorrepro.com/article/German-Army-Dress-Daggers .  As a long time collector of German military artifacts, I have seen countless articles supposedly brought back from the war by returning servicemen, and sometimes by German vets themselves, that are not authentic.  I can assure you, as others have in this thread, that the dagger you have posted pictures of  was not made during the period of time covered by the Third Reich.  In addition, the handle on the original daggers is not likely to have been made of ivory.

    Regards,

    I agree with J Temple-West's comment.  The dagger in the pictures that you posted does not look authentic to me.  Here is a link to Tom Wittman's site, a well known dagger collector, that shows what an authentic WWII Luftwaffe dagger should look like.

    Hi Gordon,

    Thanks for the reply. Can you give me any info or resources on the production and sale of reproduction items like this? Just so i can do some counter-comparisons for my own peace of mind.

  3. Thanks for the help so far everyone, i'm impressed with what i've learned! I have a couple of other items that I'd love some help on also if possible? will post on separate posts below :)

    I believe this to be a Gurkha knife but am struggling to find the correct era it is from and also if the handle is ivory or not? it will unfortunately be spread over multiple posts due to the 2mb limit
