Closet Archaeology

Article about: The lower placement of the SA sigrunne button is another Eickhorn trait! I can see the the motto is the deeper cut etch..if I am not mistaken. Regards Larry

    Wow, these things are difficult to photograph. I use natural light, but it has been cloudy, not great for photography. If additional photos are needed, please let me know.
    The first one is a Eickhorn full Rohm. I send this one to Wittmann, he was ok with the dagger and offered to buy it from me. If I remember correctly, the guards are marked internally for Eickhorn. The lower guard is also benchmarked 6. Though there appears to be a gap between guard and blade on the reverse side, it is a result of the grinding wheel running slightly onto the blade when the tang was ground to fit the guard, hence the scalloped appearance. The obverse guard blade fit is tight. The blade appears to have been cleaned, though cross graining is still there for the length of the blade.
    I am looking forward to your oppinions on this one.
    I will try for better photos on the next one.

    Thank you Mac 66. Yes, I will take care of the black cancer.
    The 5th dagger is a J.P. Sauer. I very much like the maker from the gun making area of Germany. It has the typical Suhl step, a great blade and is in uncleaned condition.

    Here are some simple shots of the Sauer dagger then. The blade does not show well, but it is bright and near mint, with only some runner marks.
    I know there are some fingerprints on the scabbard. It is however wiped down with Renwax, and will receive another coat when I am done handling it.

    Very nice Wolfgang!
    I have only 1 SA, and this is the maker that I chose to have.
