Original German NSDAP (NAZI PARTY) NSKK M33 DAGGER. (NSKK Dolch) Brought Home By A U.S. Veteran Certified. The development of the NSKK, “National Sozialistisches Kraftfahr Korps” (National Socialist Motor Corps), can be traced back to 1923 when the SA introduced a “Kraftfahr Abteilung” (Motor Section) to transport personnel as required. In 1928 the SA Motor section was expanded to “Kraftfahrstaffeln” (Motor Squadrons). In an attempt to create a national motor corps, the NSAK, “National Sozialistisches Automobil Korps” (National Socialist Automobile Corps), was formed in April of 1930 as an NSDAP auxiliary organization subordinate to the SA. In early 1931 Adolf Hühnlein was appointed as Chief of the NSAK and proposed a name change to NSKK, which was officially accepted in April of 1931. Still subordinate to the SA in 1933 when the SA dagger was introduced, the NSKK also adopted the dagger shortly after its introduction. The dagger was intended as an ornamental item and its design was based on the traditional 16th century Swiss “Holbein” dagger. In May of 1936 Korpsführer Hühnlein decreed the NSKK dagger scabbards were to be finished in black to differentiate them from the SA dagger. Roughly, 22cm long, double edged, nickel/silver plated, drop forged steel construction blade with a low central ridge. The blade shows the expected scabbard runner marks with most of the original cross-graining is still visible! (Excellent Cross-graining) The obverse of the blade has the acid etched Sütterlin script motto, “Alles für Deutschland”, (All for Germany), which is crisp and well defined. The reverse of blade has an acid etched RZM logo and manufacturers numerical code, “M7/51”, indicating manufacture by Anton Wingen, Jr. the legendary maker from Solingen, the famous “City of Blades” . The dagger has a nicely formed walnut grip which has a nice snug fit to both the top and bottom fittings. The grip has a RARE COPPER national eagle(this is 100% correct for this maker and model) and an enameled and nickel/silver plated runic SA button, which are both nicely set into the grip. The nickel/silver cross guard, pommel, and tang nut are all in nice but used condition. The dagger comes complete with its original magnetic sheet metal scabbard. The scabbard retains about 75% of its black paint (a few scuffs see photos). The nickel/silver scabbard fittings are all in fair/good condition.All of the four threaded fitting retaining screws are intact. The top fitting retains its hanger suspension loop and ring. The ball is very nice with no dings or dents. The “RZM” logo on the dagger also has a 1940 date of the manufacture of the . Very nice, but used example.
