The Nazi Dagger was a popular souvenir for many veterans  returning from the war in Europe.

The Nazi Dagger

The Nazi Dagger

For the officers who wore them, they were a symbol of  rank and power. WWII German Daggers were not issued as weapons with only the RAD hewer being anything close to a work tool.

One of the more common examples is the Army Officers Dagger; (aka Heer Dagger),as is the Luftwaffe officers Dagger (aka Air Force Dagger), The Navy officers dagger (aka Kriegsmarine Dagger), and the Hitler Youth Knife (aka HJ Dagger).

There is also the highly sought after  SS Dagger These daggers can be identified by the prominent deep black handle and sheath, with a round “SS” button at the top of the handle, just beneath the top cross guard.


SS Daggers must be carefully scrutinized due to the extremely high number of very detailed reproductions dating back decades! To compound this problem of fakes genuine Solingen made parts are combined with high quality reproduction parts to further confuse the issue. novice collectors will unknowingly purchase an SS Dagger, only to discover later they purchased a very well made fake!

The Government Officials and Diplomatic daggers are both desirable from a point of aesthetics and scarcity . Few collectors  have the good fortune to be able to add one to their collection. Sometimes referred to as a “ Government Dagger” ( Government Official’s Dagger), A gilded version is the Eastern People’s Government Official’s dagger.

 Robert Klaas SS Daggers! Their maker’s mark of the two kissing cranes has become synonymous with SS Daggers,

The Nazi Dagger

Here’s a nice Early SS Dagger from maker E.P.&S. She’s a bit salty, but still a great dagger for the price! The grip is without any cracks or chips and shows almost no dings or dents, which is rare for an early SS dagger.

The SS roundel is almost 100%, with only a very small piece of the black enamel missing, which we only noticed after viewing under magnification

This is about as good as it gets when it comes to these late-war RZM SS daggers! A real nice one here from Robert Klaas (7/37 RZM 1051/39). The grip is near perfect as far as these daggers go, with only very modest dings and use

These DLV Flyers Knives are becoming harder and harder to come by, and even more so with the original blue leather still in tact. We have here a DLV dagger from maker Paul Weyersberg Solingen. The grip has 100% of the original leather wrap still securely in place, with a few nicks from use, but no splits along the seam like we usually see with these

Here’s a minty, rarely seen, and very desirable Eickhorn Transitional NSKK dagger with the traditional Eickhorn maker’s mark below the RZM 7/66 1938 mark. The grip on the gorgeous dagger is a deep brown with only very minor wear marks and no cracks or chips.

These have always been one of my favorite dagger types, the First Model Luftwaffe daggers with the early solid nickel fittings that turn a deep dark tone from age. Absolutely stunning! This particular example has it all! An average amount of use wear to the grip leather, with the expected tones of reddish brown where the deep blue leather has given way to the years of wear.

Here’s a good clean WWII Hitler Youth knife by very hard to find maker Arthur Evertz (RZM M7/85). The knife and scabbard show average signs of wear from use and time. The scabbard retains 90% + of the paint on the back and approximately 70% on the front. The leather strap is worn in the center by the rivet. It is weak in that area and caution should be used when handling this.

We have here a very nice, original Numbered Partial Rohm Boker SS Dagger, which is attributed to SS Officer, Paul Weyer (information below). The dagger overall is in very nice condition, with no chips on the grip, only your standard dings and light scratches. The nickel cross guards show only normal and expected levels of age and tarnishing…

A very nice WW2 German Dagger, this Heer Officer Dagger bears the Carl Eickhorn Solingen maker mark on the blade. The blade measures 10.25”, and is the traditional stiletto style with flat central ridge. Total length (including the hilt) is approximately 14.5″. This dagger has never been cleaned, stored untouched since World War 2, and purchased directly from the daughter of the vet who brought it home. Aside from a hairline crack in the handle, the dagger is virtually without flaw considering it was a used war time piece

A very nice “field ground” Rohm SA Dagger by Eickorn. In 1934, Ernst Rohm was executed on Hitler’s orders, and all inscriptions on these daggers were ordered removed (ground away) by Hitler. There are several points of the inscription still identifiable on this one due to the crude nature of the “field grinding

This is a rare beauty, with the perfect combination of accessories! Carl Eickhorn 2nd model Kriegsmarine dagger with correct hangers, numbered and matching parts, decorative set-in-place portepee, and composite grip made to resemble ivory! The grip on the beauty is spectacular! Outside of real ivory it’s the next best thing. Very nice two-tone vein lines really make this grip stand out. The grip is completely solid, no wooden core, and no cracks or c

Here’s a real nice one, with a combination of qualities you’ll not find in another SS dagger! An early Eickhorn Ground Rohm SS dagger, in stunning condition, with an uncut Swastika arm on the grip eagle (see photos). The color tones in the grip are beautiful, mixing deep blacks with lighter brown tones (see photos)..

Here’s a rare gem, straight from the nephew of the veteran who liberated it during WW2. An early Eickhorn SA High Leader Dagger, which has been lying untouched since the war. We don’t come across these undisturbed pieces often, and even less often in such amazing
