The Railway Direction Leader`s Dagger, model 1940 was authorized for wear by officials in the rank of Obersekretär and higher. This model can be considered the last among daggers worked out and authorized for the organizations of the Third Reich. Though this dagger was officially introduced, it was not mass produced. In 2010 the presumed prototype of the dagger produced by C.Eickhorn from Casberg`s sketch was introduced by Thomas Wittmann during the MAX show.
