"Dienstdolch" or service dagger was introduced by the order № 1734/33 of 15 December 1933, signed by the temporary acting chief of staff of the SA, obergruppenführer von Kraussia (von Krausser). SS dagger was made in black and silver colours. The blade of a dagger was placed etched SS motto "Meine Ehre Heisst Treue" ( "My honor is called loyalty"), and the handle of a dagger decorated with an eagle. The overall design of the dagger was based on the design of the daggers that had been spread in Switzerland and Germany in XV-XVII centuries — "daggers of Holbein", because the image of this dagger came to us in the painting "Dance of death" by German artist of the time of Holbein. Daggers were worn by the SS from the output and daily uniform. The dagger was presented at an award ceremony on 9 November of each year, when cadets of the SS (SS-Anwaerter) produced in the SS (SS-Mann). SS dagger had a more limited distribution than the SA dagger, which was produced for mass series and were distributed freely. Every SS man who paid for the cost of his dagger, usually in installments before receiving.
17 February 1934 the head of the SS-Amt, the SS gruppenführer Kurt Wittje (Wittje) banned the open sale of SS daggers. Thus daggers were received from the manufacturers to the warehouses of the SS in Munich, Dresden and Berlin, and from there they were distributed on requests of staff of territorial offices. For the loss of the SS dagger had received disciplinary statement. So daggers of the SS could be SS.
From 25 January 1935 persons retired from the ranks of the SS, was obliged to give up their daggers, despite the fact that bought them for their money. If it was resignation, then the dagger was allowed to retain, and the right to its possession was attested by a certificate.
SS daggers were manufactured by leading manufacturers of knives: Boeker & Co, Carl Eickhorn, Gottlieb Hammesfahr, Richard Herder, Jacobs & Co, Robert Klaas, Ernst Pack & Soehne, C. Bertram Reinhardt. In 1933-35, the manufacturers put on the blade of the dagger your brand. Dark blue anodised steel scabbard, silver-Nickel jewelry, and the cross arm was placed the mark I, II, III, which meant the acceptance of the SS dagger by the Commission at a warehouse in Munich, Dresden or Berlin, respectively. In 1936-37, is the brands of the manufacturers began to put the stamp RZM, the scabbard is steel painted in black color, and the numbers of admissions committees no longer used, since RZM has assumed control over the quality of the daggers. Finally, in 1938 instead of Nickel-silver finish began to use silver steel, and eagle on the handle were made of aluminum. Despite the cheaper technology, the daggers still looked very stylish, as the exterior remained the same.
Until November 1934 dagger hung askew on a single leather strap, and then on the orders of Himmler introduced the vertical suspension of the dagger, which was used during safety demonstrations. However, the vertical suspension, though more reliable, do SS dagger similar to a conventional army bayonet. Therefore, in 1936 returned to the idea ignoremessage suspension, which began to be used with everyday uniform and output. Vertical suspension continued to use only during marches and military exercises.
In September 1940, for economic reasons, the dagger launched in 1933 was removed from production.The status of the subject: This course presents our European partners, is Europe. Shipping in the Russian Federation – October 2012.
