Army Heeres offiziersdolch (officers dagger )of the Wehrmacht was originally designed by the Berlin artist PAUL Casberg (pseudonym). Wearing the Army dagger was officially approved in May 4th  1935.
Nazi daggers were issued to military, paramilitary, political, and social groups of the Nazi government starting in the year 1933. Production was stopped in 1942. These German daggers are called and famous in various names, such as Third Reich daggers and World War II daggers. They were all ceremonial dress daggers to be worn by German officers and high ranking officials in public and official gatherings.
There are millions of Third Reich daggers in existence, with hundreds of metalworking companies manufacturing them at the peak of production
For the dagger, a sword knot aluminum and 7 different carriers has been developed. 
From 24 December 1944 the officers were ordered to wear a different weapon instead of the army dagger. Since the army dagger was a personal item of clothing officer, usually the officers bought the dagger for their own money
. An army dagger back then cost about 11.50 RM (Reichsmark).

The basic parts of an Army Nazi dagger are:
1. Dagger pommel is a gold-coated conic brass, with leaves etched at the side.
2. Dagger cross guard has an eagle with spread wingspan, clutching a wreath containing the swastika sign. The guards on each side extend beyond the wings of the eagle and form into spiral.
3. Dagger hilt has slanted grip, with colors ranging from pale yellow to deep orange.
4. Dagger scabbard is simple metallic sheath, with two ring hangers each fitted with a clutch containing etchings of leaves.
5. Dagger blade contains the logo of the company at the ricasso. The tip is tapered, with a thick band of fuller at the centerline.
