As can be seen in the images he has done this to a high standard. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 8517

The Reichsarbeitsdienst (RAD, "Reich Labour Service") was a major organisation established by Nazi Germany as an agency to help militarize the civilian workforce and indoctrinate it with Nazi ideology. It was the official state labour service, divided into separate sections for men and women. From June 1935 onwards, men aged between 18 and 25 had to serve six months before their military service. During World War II compulsory service also included young women and the RAD developed to an auxiliary formation which provided support for the Wehrmacht armed forces. Hundreds of RAD units also received training as anti-aircraft units and were deployed as RAD Flak Batteries. Several RAD units also performed combat on the eastern front as infantry. As the German defences were devastated, more and more RAD Units were committed to combat. During the final months of the war RAD men formed 6 major frontline units, which were involved with serious fighting. On the western front RAD troops were used as reinforcements to the 9th SS Engineer Abt (SS-Captain Moeller) in the fighting to retake the northern end of the Arnhem bridge from British Paratroopers under Col. Frost. Like most Nazi organisations the RAD was authorised a separate Hewer / dagger for its enlisted men as well as Officer / Leader ranks. The enlisted man’s Hewer adopted in 1934 was initially also worn by Sgts and Officers. These daggers had heavy stag horn grips. This is an excellent, genuine example of the RAD man’s Hewer. It has a 9 ¾” long blade with fullers and measures 14 ¾” overall. The blade is marked by the manufacturer 'Eickhorn, Solingen' & the trademark in the form used by Eickhorn between 1933-1935 indicating it is most likely one of the initial production run Hewers. It also has the RAD triangle mark and ‘Ges Gesch’ quality inspection mark. The reverse has the correct RAD motto etching ‘Arbeit Adelt’ (Work Enobles). It has an Eagle’s beak pommel, cross guard and correct Stag horn scales. The metal fittings of the dagger are nickel plated. The dagger is complete with original black painted steel scabbard which features a geometric design throat mount and chape with the RAD ‘Shovel With Swastika’ emblem. One edge of the scabbard has a fixed hanging bar. The bar is fitted with original correct leather ‘bullet’ belt hanger with bullet shaped leather uniform protector and belt loop. The hanger has the correct nickel plated sprung clip which is marked by the manufacturer ‘A&S’ ( Assman & Son) and with RAD triangle ‘37’ (1937) date mark. The price for this rare, Nazi RAD Man’s Dagger, Scabbard & Hanger combination includes UK delivery. Sn 14767.
