RAD German Hewer Dagger AH-3139
RAD German Dagger Hewer - The RAD or Reichs Labor Service began in 1934 as a work program for young men before joining the German Army. Both officers and enlisted men wore the large service hewer. The hewer is a large stag-gripped weapon with a Bowie-style blade. Our version comes with a bone grip. The scabbard shell is blued on very early versions, but mostly is found with black painted surface. The plated steel scabbard fittings are stamped with swirled designs and a swastika on a shovel at the bottom.
