Im still trying to grasp the concept..of the reason why...and trying to connect what Germany held as an honor..and a carpet manufacturer. Although the Heer dagger is non political ..I would assume the restrictions of the distribution of these to the general public. The real oddity and severity is the time period and the overall NS doctrine.
This is a brain teaser..and I can not connect the 2. The other strangled thought..is how is it that a carpet producer has the right to hand these out,,which Im sure there was some sort of restrictions handing out edged minis compared to tinnies with swastikas. Still a neat item and a neat concept. Regards Larry

Perhaps he made carpets for the SMF factory Larry.

The BESMER firm was still in business in the late 50s and 60s and without looking further in to them they could still be.
There are all sorts of connections that we could imagine. One of the boys may have been a Luftwaffe ace! They could have made carpets for Karinhalle.
I guess we will never know ...unless some one out here has the answer!
What this has done is make me more interested in grabbing some more of these little chaps.
They certainly take up less space than the big fellas.
All the best
