The start of the Third Reich regime saw an increase in the production of Swords and Daggers for members of not only the Army, Airforce and Navy, but also members involved in every facet of life in Germany at that time.
The City of Solingen was the main area of German Sword, Dagger and Bayonet production during the Nazi period. However the history of the area as a blade manufacturing site goes back many hundreds of years, when the quality of the blades manufactured were highly famed.
The Third Reich re-created an industry that not only employed thousands of people in the production role, but also roles such as Marketing, Sales and Design. New Companies jostled for position against evolving older Companies, but the overriding feeling was that a new era had been reached.
