Title SS other ranks 1933 pattern dagger
Nationality German
Period 1939

This fine dagger is RZM coded number 37 (Robert Klass of Solingen) and dated 1939. This type was worn widely by all ranks within the SS and was only partially superceded by the 1936 pattern chain dagger. The later RZM daggers typically have a black paint scabbard finish as opposed to a blue finish.

The paintwork is excellent, with the odd little patch where it is rubbed to bare metal and some minor spider rust here and there. The blade has all its original factory polish. The hilt eagle is aluminium, as one would expect on a late pattern dagger. The grip would appear to be stained beechwood/fruitwood of some sort, again typical of the later daggers. The hilt mounts would appear to be aluminium alloy with 95%+ of their nickel silver finish intact. The scabbard mounts are nickel silver on steel and these are mint.

Bayonet arrived safe and well earlier, finally got a chance to unwrap it and have a quick peek and am very pleased, thanks!
