NSFK Glider Pilot Knife [M1937] with Hanger - Stöcker & Co. Solingen

German NSFK [Nationalsozialistische Fliegerkorps] Glider Pilot´s Dagger. Model 1937. This NSFK example is of early construction. The mounts are all heavy nickel.


Grip: The pommel cap has the standard three segments and shows no damage from hits. There is some old frosting that remains on the ferrule below. The center block still has crisp rectangular squares having the separate added medallions which are complete with mobile black enamel swastikas. The crossguard arms are the three segment type which go downwards slightly. The letter “K” is stamped into one end quillon. There is also frosting evident in the recesses of these quillon arms. The grip is a wood base being bulbous in the center and tapering on both ends. This grip is covered with fine Moroccan leather being two-piece construction. The leather retains is full grain and is 100% throughout.

Blade: The blade is absolutely outstanding. This blade is still factory mirror bright and retains its needlelike tip. The blade has 100% grain in the surfaces. A true mint blade here! The producer etching is on the reverse ricasso. The etched trademark consists of a seated king which is holding an upward pointing sword. The king is sitting on the firm’s initials, SMF - Stöcker & Co. (Solinger Metallwaffenfabrik), Solingen. This fine blade is protected by the original matching blue grained leather washer.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is nice and straight. This shell is covered with matching Moroccan leather. This leather is perfect except for a couple of areas along the right edge. We put a couple of small matching leather patches in the area which covers most of the flaw. It is not bad however and is really a natural occurrence one would expect to see on a dagger which is some seven decades old. The scabbard mounts are the solid nickel type and both are in outstanding condition to include the lower ball. The flatter style screws are in the sides and are all in place and are not turned. The carrying ring is complete with the original short hanger.

Hanger: This short hanger is as nice as they come being of a dark brown leather and having accent lines along all of the edges. This leather is still in pristine condition. The leather is retained by two oval nickel disks which are held in place by two rivets. These disks also have some original frosting on them. The clip is the standard nickel unmarked type.
