German Army Daggers

German Army DaggersThe German Army Dagger was a standard dress accessory available to officers of the German Army (Heer). Like SA daggers and SS daggers this dagger was designed for use as a decorative uniform accessory, not a weapon. They feature numerous design characteristics that leave no doubt they are an item from the Nazi German era. Examples of these include a cross guard decorated with the ubiquitous Nazi eagle with spread wings and carrying a wreath that contains a prominent swastika, and a pommel that features a decorative ring of oak leaves that rise from the grip to the top of the pommel. Also in contrast to the SS and SA daggers the blade of this WW2 German dagger was plain and not engraved with a motto. The style and construction of the German army dagger’s scabbard varied little over the years in terms of overall appearance, with early versions fashioned from brass and later versions constructed from steel. The dagger’s grip featured a carved spiral groove, available in white, orange or yellow. Additionally German army officers had the option of choosing grips fashioned from materials such as solid ivory or a heavy amber glass.
