Although there are no reproduction dagger hangers on the market I have found it is possible to buy very good reproductions of all the metal parts. See here

http://stores.ebay.com/MILITANTO?_trksid=p2047675.l2563.

I have also managed to buy the correct Litze tresse material for the straps.

See here http://www.ebay.com/itm/150564335919?ss ... 1497.l2649

and here http://www.ebay.com/itm/360856567477?ss ... 1497.l2649

Now I can assemble my own very accurate replica of the LW 2nd pattern hanger.

Peiper, I see you are with the LSSAH, If you check out http://stores.ebay.com/MILITANTO?_trksid=p2047675.l2563. you may find the parts for the correct SS hanger. They have lots of parts i have not checked it all out. They seem to be based in the Czech Republic.

Repro metal parts for daggers are also available from various vendors, and some even sell original Solingen blades. Given the existence of all this stuff the provenance of many daggers sold as originals is clearly quite suspect.

At the moment WW2 germandaggers.com,has original Luftwaffe hangers at£125 and £145,he also has a original Eickhorn 2nd luft with replaced original pommel(so now classed as a parts dagger) for £280.If can get hold of dagger clips and similar buckle you can make SS dagger hangers,standard or vertical.The chained SS dagger was not an 'officers' dagger but an service dagger,it was for six years service in the SS.At the moment nobody makes a decent SS chained,the dagger clip is missing (the best copys were made in the 1960's,even they are not cheap if you can find one and probably palmed off as the real deal anyway.)

Cheers John, how about the type with the leather dagger
loops/hangers, I read that this was the SS Manns dagger
hanger for NCO's/OR's
Cheers Peiper

I'm impressed with those dagger parts from CZ,very scary,but the Czechs do make the best repro's(trouble is a lot of it is sold as real!)
Loz,the M33 SS dagger was introduced for all ranks,you then get the Rohm presentation daggers,after he was 'bumped off',those who took part got 'Himmler' presentation daggers.The hangers were a short leather hanger or for marching /or so it would not swing about when moving,the vertical hanger.

I used to have that book,the wound badges with holes drilled in them,so they could pin them to the display board :lol: good old Imperial War museum,but when that was done nobody gave this stuff any value.Years ago people refered to the M36 SS chained dagger as an officers dagger,Waffen SS officers were permitted to wear a portepee(silver knot) on their M36(you sometimes find a M33 with this as well but not official.).

That's the best I've seen so far, but the belt ring is too modern for my taste and the stitching will have to be corrected. Minor easy corrections.
