Instituted in1934 the R.A.D.Hewer was robustly crafted to serve as both a working hatchet and to be worn as an emblem of authority on formal occasions.

RAD Leaders with belt

Paul Casburg based his design for the hewer on an antique woodman’s hatchet.

Rad Leaders Price

These Antler griped Hewers measured forty cms overall .They had carbon steel blades etched with the RAD moto”Arbeit Adelt“  (“Work Ennobles”) The scabbards were steel shells mounted with silvered nickel then later steel and alloy fittings. Celtic knot designs and a swastika within a spade flanked by ears of corn were impressed into the fittings.


Fittings to the scabbard were toned with black shellac,oil glaze or cellulose paint ,polished back, then lacquered to achieve an antique look.The antler grip plates on early productionHewers retain the raw texture whilst later examples tend to have a smoother finish. A Scarce variation is the “Full Stag” in this early variation of the Hewer the handle lacks the metal ends to the pommel. They are instead covered by Antler. The Hewer was affixed to the enlisted man’s belt by a large leather hanger, variations of hangers exist as well as non regulation examples.Hewers were locally issued at Labor Corps battalion bases and were not available for private purchase .The RAD’s triangular proof mark is seen above the makers mark on hewers produced before 1936 production of the Hewer had finished by late 1942.Known Makers of the Rad Hewer. Include Carl Eickhorn. Boker.,Gottlieb Hammesfahr.W.K.C., Axt und Hauer fabrick.,Paul Weyersberg & Co.,Carl Julius Krebbs.Tiger. and Pumawerk,
