GERMAN WWII MARKINGS - BLADE MANUFACTURERS -
The German armed forces and many of the Nazi support organizations issued daggers or other edge weapons to their members. Few other countries in the world have had the variety and number of such items issued to their members, therefore, the number of manufacturers is similarly large.

This section of the reference web site catalogs various examples of the manufacturer markings that were stamped on the blades produced during the Third Reich. The logos are divided according to the type of dagger or edge weapon type.

Some of the manufacturing companies were in business for several years before the rise of Hitler. Their company logos may have changed throughout time. It is important to know this because the logo shown in the pictures below may not be the only correct logo to be found on a blade.
