Most were for daily wear while many were utilitarian, such as with the military where they were used in combat. Many though were exclusively worn for “show” as part of the daily uniform and for dress/ceremonial occasions. Fighting knifes and bayonets were mostly exclusive to military formations such as the Army (Heere), Waffen-SS, Navy(Kriegsmarine) and Air Force (Luftwaffe).
