8O I don't think, the REAL chained SS'36 would be marked! :roll:
Maybe only on the tang.

BoDuke

Correct Walter

SS officer's daggers should NOT have maker, or RZM marks on the blade.
Only thing I plan to do to it is clean it alittle, and add the missing link.
Thanks,Bo

dagger

Post by HaEn » 08 May 2002 23:57

On my forelast trip to Alaska, there was a knife shop in Sitka, which had one on display: I got goose bumps and asked "How much" . The man smiled and said, "look at it first"; I did. It looked and felt like the real McCoy. ( I've seen and handled them) Even down to the silver metal inlay on the handle. Asked again : "how much " The guy said $ 35.--". "It's a replica, I got two dozen of them, made in Spain". I should have bought it but was too ticked off. Last time I went back he was out of business. Oh well. HN.

Repo

Post by Keith Loughmiller » 10 May 2002 12:51

Repo chained SS daggers look nothing like a real one. They have plastic handles, and the hanger is "chrome" plated. $35.00 is about dealer price on these. You can find them easily. PM me, if you are still looking. The local gun/knife shop has one(repo).

I've seen once the VERY NICE repro chained SS by Marto company ... wooden grip, very nice finishing ... really, the beginner collector can be fooled with this one.
Somewhere in my PC jungle there's the picture of his one - will try to find it.

AT LEAST THE SELLER WAS HONEST.MARTO IS ONLINE. WATCH FOR GRIP TO CROSSGUARD FIT.IT SHOULD BE ALMOST A SMOOTH TRANSITION.IF YOU EVER GET A CHANCE TO INSPECT AN ORGINAL DO SO!
