Title 1933 pattern SS man's dagger with vertical frog
Nationality German
Period c 1933-39

This is a Robert Klaas example. It has an SS/RZM marked leather vertical frog, the clip of which is also RZM/maker marked. It is marked '1' on the crossguard for the Munich area (SS Inspection Bureau). These daggers were initially issued as an honour to worthy recipients and could later also be purchased. An increasingly rare dagger.

The blade has some of its original polish at the forte, but the bulk of the finish has been lost and replaced by a very lightly mottled look. The scabbard has been refinished at some point with modern gun blue, having been somewhat inexepertly cleaned. The grip is made of beechwood, the stain having worn off somewhat over the years. The fittings are the early pattern of solid white metal, both on the scabbard and the hilt.

The dagger is 100% original, other than the scabbard refinish and the slight greying of the blade.
