*As Found* ‘WWI’ German Trench Dagger and Sheath. ED 2570 - ED 2570
The German ‘Nahkampfmesser ‘ (translated: close combat knife) was the standard issue German combat knife during the First World War. It remained in service in modified form through the end of the Second World War. Most of these knives had slab wooden grips and metal sheaths and were sturdily made. According to one authoritative source, German-issued trench knives of World War I were "conventional, general-purpose, cut-and-thrust knives" with blades that were "for the most part approximately six inches in length, single-edged with a top leading false edge, although double-edged blades are occasionally encountered. German trench knives carried during World War II were similar in design and are usually known today as boot knives, although they seldom were carried in boots. Most also had steel sheaths with clips that could be attached to boots, webbing or clothing, and most were made by government contractors and issued as combat gear. This example is 27 ½ cm in length, the blade is 14 ½ cm long. The single edged blade is true and has no nicks or damage. There is an Imperial inspection mark to one side of the blade. The grips are hardwood and in remarkable condition. They have nine grooves per side to aid grip. The sheath is of steel construction with a leather belt loop held by two studs to the rear. It had lost 75% of its original finish. This is a good piece of history for the collector. See German Combat Knives 1914-1945 by ‘Christian Mery’ page 34. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2570.

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. 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.
