Official Nazi ''Waffen-SS'' engraved butterfly knife. The Waffen-SS served as an armed division of the Nazi party and was comprised of mostly conscripted men of various European countries. It was for this reason that, though they committed crimes against humanity during WWII, they were only considered guilty by association. Knife has ''RZM M7/66/34'' engraved, along with the two Nazi lightning bolt symbols, signifying ''Schutz-Staffel'' or paramilitary defense corps. The same ''SS'' is engraved to knife with ''Streifendienst'' beside it. Also depicts the Nazi swastika and eagle on knife's safety clasp. Knife is made of brass and steel and has ''Carl Eicknhorn Solingen'' engraved to blade, the maker's mark. Measures 5.5'' x 1'' and blade measures 4.5''. Some tarnishing, else very good.
