These are high quality steel and hardwood construction reproduction made exclusively by one the worlds best edged weapon makers (a contractor to the USMC).
The DRK (German Red Cross) dagger was adopted in 1938 and was authorized for all officials with the rank of Wachtfuhrer (officer or non-commissioned officer in charge of a guard) and higher.
Like the original- this dagger is approximately 37 cm long and features a plain pointed blade that conformed to the Geneva Convention because it was not worn in the field.
The grip is plastic and colored orange with 10 horizontal simulated wire cords running around the grip. The pommel and cross guard is similar in style to the Hewer and both are nickel-plated. The cross guard has the DRK insignia at its center. The scabbard has a pebbledash finish with two square suspension rings.
Although the dagger ceased production in 1940 officers wore it until the end of the war, making originals quite hard to find. This is a rare dagger is now available as a high quality replica for the first time on the collector’s market.
