History

The German Red Cross DRK (Deutsches Rotes Kreuz) was organized under the auspices of the Ministry of the Interior and represented a volunteer organization supported by the State, whose goal was to provide assistance to the civilian population. Ordinary members of the organization, and they were both men and women, worked for free. The bosses were on a salary and wore a special uniform. The emblem of the organization contained a widespread image of the red cross, which, in turn, was placed in the paws of a stylized eagle with a fascist swastika.


In February 1938, a cleaver was established for junior employees of the German Red Cross with the rank from Heifer to Haupthelfer. According to an international agreement, Red Cross workers were not allowed to carry assault weapons. Therefore, the point of the cleaver was made of a chopped rectangular shape. The metal scabbard was painted black. The total length of the cleaver was 40 cm . The suspension was made of black (sometimes brown) leather and was similar to the suspension used for bayonet knives. A lanyard is not provided. The main companies producing cleavers for the Red Cross were the enterprises of Robert Klaas (Robert Klaas) and Luneschloss (P. D. Luneschloss). The production of cleavers was stopped in 1940.
