this may seem wierd but could someone help?
« on: May 29, 2007, 11:13:11 am »
i have searched on google, E-bay and everywhere, i have looked for ages and i have honestly struggled but i cannot seem to find a hitler jugend dagger /  Hitler Youth knife. a SA or Officers Knife etc would also be good. i guess the only two things i must insist are that it doesn't have "Blut und Ehre!" written on the blade and that it is a re-production. i don't want an original incase i break it and can't find another.

i would like to say that i want to buy one strictly for recreation/collective purposes, i am not a neo-nazi, nor do i beleive in national socialism nor do i sympethise with hitler or any other Nazi and (for various reasons) i will be incredibly offended if you accuse me of anything like that.

Go to Ste Mere Elgise in Normandy, France. All the antique shops have some sort of WWII weaponry.


I bought a Kar98 for my friend so he could upgrade into a paintball rifle. I don't know how but he did.

Just drive to Normandy via the Tunnel, it only takes around 10 hours.

i don't have a licence, so i would need to get someone to drive for me

"hey could you drive me to Normandy and back please?" already sounds quite bad even before you explain that you just wanna pick up a knife.

i have a cousin in America, could i buy one from an american site, mail it to him and then get him to mail it to me? or would that not work?

OK, this one is hard to find on a fast search, but...

Per the British Tourism website... import restrictions:

Offensive weapons, such as flick knives, butterfly knives, push daggers, belt-buckle knives, death stars, swordsticks, knives disguised as everyday objects, knuckledusters, blowpipes, spring-operated telescopic truncheons, and some martial arts equipment.

So this would imply that a regular knife could be imported.

It is legal in the United States to mail a knife.

No DHL has a page about import restrictions:
http://www.dhl.co.uk/publish/gb/en/information/country_details1/import_guidelines.high.html
I do not see any weapons restrictions, other than what would obviously be restricted by law.

From what I could tell, if you could find a dealer in the US to ship to England, you would only need to find a way to secure that you are 18 years of age or older so that the shipper would not be held liable for charges stemming from the Offensive Weapons Act of 1996.

I did note that this site http://www.bkcg.co.uk/ does ship knives to the US without restriction (but our knife laws are a bit of a joke) so there does appear to be some avenue for shipping knives.

I don't know if England has a Curios and Relics Law regarding certain types of knives, but it might allow for shipment in cases were a normal knife would be restricted.

If you were here in the USA, I'd just take you to a gun show, someone always has a couple tables of knives tucked in between the rifles and the shotguns. :)

i just can't seem to find a hitler jugend dagger from any site that doesn't have "Blut und Ehre!" written on the blade, i hate that, it was only put on blades manufactured in early 1937.

I'm just questioning quite why you want to dress up as a Nazi.

i don't want to dress up like a Nazi, although i have before for a party (although i didn't have to make a public apology for it :) )

i am just not afraid of Nazi iconography like most people who cower at the sight of a swastika even though its been a buddhist symbol for 5000 years and a nazi symbol for 10.

i just want a Hitler youth knife is all.

I have a collection of several rifles from both World Wars, so collecting isn't so wierd. When on display you'd see examples of many rifles, come complete with webbing and such. Preserving history is not a problem.... repeating it can be however.
