Item 7383   SS Officer M36 "Type 1" Chained dagger

       

       

       

       

       

     

I bought this dagger years ago from a friend of mine who bought it directly from the Veteran in Saginaw Michigan. (I'm sorry but there is no information on the veteran; back in those days, such details were sadly left unrecorded). I have kept this dagger over the years not because it is in "minty" condition but because it is the most honest and untouched example that I have ever seen.

The Black grip is a fine example of very rarely encountered "tiger stripe" ebony wood and it is basically flawless; with no chips or cracks. The fit to the hardware is excellent. The Type 1 chains and fittings are made from nickel alloy and have heavy black patina evenly spread across the surface. The paint of the scabbard shows age and wear but is 95% intact. The blade is not excellent. It has some light spotting on the surface but much of the cross grain is present and the blade has never been polished. There is a 2mm deep dent in the side of the scabbard (see the red arrow in the last photo). This effects nothing. The dagger goes in and out of the scabbard easily. The small screws that hold the fittings to the body of the scabbard are untouched.

If you have ever wanted just one example of an SS officer dagger that is beyond reproach; you may want to consider this one. $4875.00

An example of the SS officer's degen which was produced at the SS run blade works at Dachau. This Dachau Degen is in super condition throughout. It has a stainless steel D guard with separate upper and lower ferrules. The D guard is completely textbook, with a teardrop quillon end. The lower ferrule has fine standing oak leaves separated by acorns. As is the case with the Dachau versions there is no background darkening to this design. The tang nut is a standard, nickel-plated steel type, showing mild traces of age but nothing bad. The reverse cover plate is also nickel-plated steel. The ebony grip is in perfect condition and is wrapped with tight nickel wire. The runes button is also stainless as is usual in Dachau produced swords. This button has fine, raised SS runes with a good background darkening. The scabbard has a Wotan's Knot that is also made of stainless steel. It is retained by two headless side screws. The lower mount is a pressure fit type that does not use screws to retain it. The scabbard shell is straight throughout and has fairly good original paint. This paint shows some dings here and there but is overall very nice. The unmarked blade is in choice condition, measuring 32 inches long. It has the conventional fuller and good, crisp edges. This blade remains in Mint condition. It has the standard Dachau type brown leather washer. The degen is finished off with a 100% original example of the SS officers sword knot. It is in decent shape with a well shaped and tightly woven knot head. The strap which is wrapped around the handle has a few weak spots but displays very well. The hanger is a variant that is unknown to me but it fits and it came on the sword so here it stays. Price $6000.00

The "Prinz Eugen" was favored by SS officers in the years before they came out with the M36 officer degen.  The "Prin Eugen was also worn by Army officers on occasion. ( actually, if you just untie the knot from the handle of this sword, it becomes an army officer's sword.)

The blade is 35 inches long with an overall length of 40 inches. The blade is well marked by Eickhorn and being nickel plated, it remains in excellent condition. The handle and cross guard retains a good amount of it's original gilding and the grip is in excellent condition.

This one is a great example. $2750.00 (I have seen the knots themselves being offered for prices $1500-2000)
