Are any of these authentic?

Just wanted to find out if any of these are authentic. They don't look it to me but I'm not an expert. This is the only image I have.

Only Luftwaffe 2nd pattern dagger, at left, have a chance....( But could be a repro )
Center and right, are fantasy daggers based in first pattern Luftwaffe dagger and sword

What makes you think they're fake? The handles, with the down turned wings look authentic, as well as the scabbard for the center dagger.

Old thread, but only the 2nd model Luftwaffe has any chance of being original, the other two are horrible fakes, really bad.... Fantasy is really the proper discription. Hopefully you're kidding...
