A special ceremonial Hitler Youth leader dagger for sale


One of just three ceremonial HJ leader daggers to be offered on the market place within the last forty years. Desirable provenance. Exceptional rarity !


It was a musician's joy, when Bunting acquired one of the particularly rare ceremonial pattern Hitler Youth leader daggers, from friend and fellow musician, Chris Farlow. The princely sum of £145 was paid in July 1970.


Ceremonial pattern Hitler Youth leader dagger for sale made by Horster, Solingen. The dagger with typical fine wire bound grip, with HJ diamond pommel top, affixed with two pins, along with the flap lower cross guard with side decoration. The blade  obverse without motto as regulations. The reverse with the RZM logo and M7/36.

The scabbard with heavily silver-plated finish throughout, typical of the ceremonial pattern (the standard pattern finished with leather). The relief scabbard top with HJ eagle with swastika to the chest. The scabbard with three sets of decorative bands, along with two rings for attaching hangers.

Condition report: The dagger remaining in particularly good condition for its type. The pommel top with most plating intact (90%), the cross guard typically with most plating missing. The scabbard with 95% plating remaining. The blade in excellent condition with much polish and cross grain, and free from pitting or other damage. The motto clear, and with much of its black infill.

Provenance: From the collection of specialist edged weapons collector, Alan Bunting. The Hitler Youth leader dagger noted in his ledger as having been purchased on 23rd July 1970, at a cost of £145.00. Although not stated in his ledger, all Bunting's daggers were purchased from his friend, and fellow musician, Chris Farlow. A copy from Bunting's ledger, showing this TeNo hewer is included in the sale. Each edged weapon within the Bunting collection was wrapped in a form of brown waxed protective paper, and stored within his safe. This dagger also comes with its protective paper wrapping.

Notes: Alan Bunting died in January 2018. After serving with the RAF, Bunting became an Audio Manager with the BBC, and later worked with many record companies. A classical musician in his own right, Bunting quickly moved over to music production. It was during the 1960s that he met rock musician, and military antiques dealer, Chris Farlow. They quickly became friends, a friendship that led to Bunting collecting Third Reich edged weapons. Farlow, himself an edged weapons collector for a while, sourced the best examples for Bunting. Bunting's ledger shows that he started collecting in 1969.

Additional notes: Although Bunting's leadger states this dagger was purchased with a set of hangers, these are no longer with the piece. The family have no idea what happened to the hangers, and we are selling the dagger without hangers.
