Product Description: This nicest SA Dagger M7/37 is an incredible, near mint survivor, in phenomenal condition. It’s simply the nicest SA dagger that we have ever seen. The blade is near mint, with all of the original crossgraining still intact and very evident. The logo is crisp and perfect, with very strong original darkening. The reverse of the blade is etched with the round RZM logo, as well as the maker code M7/37, indicating manufacture by the firm of Robert Klaas in Solingen. The handle on this dagger is nearly perfect, with all of the original bright plating on the fittings. The wood grip is super clean, with virtually no wear at all; the grip eagle and SA roundel retain all of the original detail. This nicest SA Dagger M7/37 is complete with its original scabbard. The scabbard is nearly flawless, with 100 percent of the original glossy brown enamel paint finish. The lustrous plating on the metal scabard fittings has only a few small marks. The scabbard is perfectly straight, with no dents or damage. From a condition standpoint, it would be nearly impossible to upgrade this fine dagger.


Historical Description: The Model 1933 (M33) SS dagger was first serviceable dagger produced for the SS. The design was derived from a 16th century Swiss hunting dagger called the “Holbein”. The M33 SS Dagger was worn by all ranks within the SS. Becoming a member of the SS was held in high respect during the Third Reich, and their daggers became a symbolic piece within its ranks. Every year on November 9th, the new SS men would pledge their full allegiance to the Führer (Adolf Hitler) in front of the Feldherrnhalle monument in Munich and receive their dagger as a symbol of that oath. The inscription on the blade “Mein Ehre Heißt Treue”, which translates to “My Honor is Loyalty”, was the motto of the SS.

Manufacturing for these daggers began late in 1933 and continued until 1942 when production of all daggers ceased to conserve materials and labor for the war effort. Today, collectors categorize these daggers into three main categories; Early, Transitional, and Late period.  SS daggers produced from 1933 to early 1935 are early and have anodized scabbards, nickel fittings, and are generally of a higher workmanship. Transitional period daggers were produced from 1935 to 1938, are usually found with painted scabbards, plated fittings and RZM codes with their makers logo on the blade. Late period daggers were produced from 1938 to 1942.  They are similar to the transitional period daggers in that they use plated fittings and painted scabbards, but will only be found with the RZM logo and code on the blade.
