Once again, we return to the creative works of Lt. Col. James Atwood, USA ret and CIA operative.
Here is a picture, taken from his dagger book, showing a “Himmler Damascus Letter Opener.”
This creative bit of work is to be found in his book, ‘The Daggers and Edged Weapons of Hitler’s Germany’ Berlin, 1965 on page 213.
This is described as a Himmler Christmas present, made by Paul Müller at Dachau.
The blade is not Damascus but is acid-etched and the gilt lettering is applied with Xpoxy.
These entertaining pieces cost Atwood DM 100.
At the time he had them made, a Deutsche Mark was worth $.25.
