A very rare and highly collectable SS Officers early nickel sword in basically uncleaned condition. This is the classic, early, nickel SS Officers sword in untouched condition, though has been looked after in the sense of being in a hallway that was a constant environment. The sword has a nice patina and overall feel of quality complimented by an equally rare sword knot in beautiful condition. Grip has no damage other than the wear of time, SS runes are perfectly fixed and have never been tampered with, though has lost most of the background black definition behind the SS runes, which is not unusual ~ it is nice to see nobody has tried to reblack the background. Grip wire is unbroken and in fine condition. All fittings to the hilt, handguard etc are solid nickel as expected. There is the stamped small SS rune mark underneath the crossguard and on the top throat of the scabbard fitting. Scabbard is in excellent condition with only minor paint flakes/chips, again the norm with scabbards of this age, the upper and lower scabbard fittings are nickel plated steel as expected. Blade is basically unmarked bar a couple of little brownish patches (see photographs) but this does not detract whatsoever. Blade length is 31 inches and the scabbard is 32.5 inches and maker marked with the ‘Horster’ logo. An opportunity for the discerning collector to acquire a rare original and untouched SS Officers sword at an investment price. Original SS Officers swords are considerably rarer than 1936 chained daggers and represent the high point/centre piece of any collection.

WW2 Japanese Officer's Katana in field service mounts with leather covered scabbard. The blade is in excellent condition with the absolute minimum of marks to the blade surface, there is a signature to tang, which as yet is unresearched. The furniture including the ray skin grip and tsuba is of the usual WW2 service pattern. The grip leather is in good condition, no damage or cuts/frays, is fully laced to the top providing a snug fit into the hand, blade length to the tsuba is 27 inches. There are 3 leather 'spacers' on the blade side of the tsuba, these I doubt are war time but have been added within the swords 'peace time' life to maintain a tightness of the assembly, easily replaced with an additional wartime washer for correctness. The scabbard is leather covered in the jungle field style and has seen some considerable service having been re-booted at least twice - it is nice to see such field care as it shows the sword was most likely carried throughout the war to be either captured or surrendered in the last days - the top suspension mount is also another nice practical field repair with a copper ring and plate, very nice armourers work, it is clear that this sword has been much respected by its former wearer, as was the Japanese way. The scabbard leather has shrunk over time from the mouth of the scabbard to reveal the scabbard wood though this does not detract at all. This sword is a good example of a battlefield carried katana. Overall length in scabbard is approx 40 inches.

Two WW2 Japanese swords, one an NCO's true copper hilted type 95 katana, only the early original army swords had copper hilts, later, the majority of the 1935 pattern had aluminum hilts with copper coloured paint. These early NCO swords are scarce and much harder to find than the common painted aluminum hilts. Sadly no scabbard, as it was brought back. Detail on the second sword to follow.

A mid 19th century, Edo period, antique Japanese mokko shaped carved iron tsuba with dragon and tiger design. The dragon is overlaid with gold and the tiger with silver with further flames and foliage highlighted in copper and gold. The tsuba measures 8 x 7.5 cms and approx 0.6 cm in thickness. It is in recovered condition as per the photos though the workmanship, which is of a very high order, still comes across clearly. A really nice tsuba that still looks fabulous on display.

A delibrately cut or snapped SA/SS dagger blade, main side shows a readable 'Alles fur Deutschland' and the reverse shows typical grinding found on an erased Rohm. Excellent early maker details 'Gustav Wirth' with a nice clear logo, tang marked 'C2'. At the end of the war dagger blades and swords were often cut, especially the swords if the owner or family wished to keep them rather than surrender them to the Allied authorities. Offered as a 'relic' of the time, as the pictures show and as an interest item only, has been cleaned and looked after by the soldier who brought it back from Germany during National Service, priced accordingly.
