NOTE: Over the years we have collected items with historical interest.  The majority of our memorabilia is war related and we do not wish to offend anyone.  We do not support or condone war but believe that historical items can remind us of our history, teach us about specific moments in time and hopefully prevent us from reliving any manmade horrific times in history.  Any items we offer are intended for collectors of memorabilia and hopefully will be used for educational purposes.    All of our collectables come from our own private collection via many X-service personnel and government auctions and have included Nazi party, Holocaust, Allgemeine and Waffen SS, Luftwaffe, Kriegsmarine, Kamikaze, Japanese, Australian, U.S., British items, etc.  We should not forget our past but should endeavor to learn from its mistakes. It is our hope we never forget those that have died as a result of war.  May god protect them!

NOTE:  The picture because it was taken outside in the early sunlight, the silver looks a little blue.  These pictures don't do the item justice.  It is a beautiful sword.
