THE KNIGHT'S CROSS
WITH SILVER OAK LEAVES, SWORDS 
AND DIAMONDS

 As the war progressed, more classes were added to the Knight's Cross: Oak Leaves and Swords, then Oak Leaves, Swords and Diamonds.  In the course of the war, about 5000 Knight's Crosses were awarded. Only 27 were awarded with diamonds.
   The Knight's Cross was awarded for military achievement, not necessarily for valor.  Generals regularly received it for capturing important objectives; junior officers and enlisted men had to perform remarkable feats of arms to attain a comparable level of military merit.
   Our reproduction Knight’s Crosses are die-struck, not cast, and come with a neck ribbon. At ordinary viewing distance, they are virtually indistinguishable from the genuine article. The Knight’s Cross fits in the presentation case listed for it on the main medals catalog page.
