    This SS dagger was introduced in December 1933 and was based on a similar design of the "Holbien Dagger"
    The SS dagger was given a special status and was only presented to the owner on 9th November each year at the SS Anwarter, or candidate ceremony, as he qualified to be a SS Mann. It was made a disciplinary matter for an SS man to dispose of, or lose their dagger because it was considered a symbol of their office. The SS 1933 dagger was withdrawn from production in 1942.
