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

    I think you chose well Ralph. The gunmaking tradition can be seen in the choice of wood for the grip and the feel of the dagger. They are different than all the others.

    Wolfgang,



    Love the J.P Sauer

    Condition is lovely & so is the grip wood !


    When your applying renwax to the blade do you apply it to the motto & maker logo or not ?

    I coat the entire blade, motto included. The wax is invisible, and does not add any shine when used ass directed. It seems to provide excellent protection.

    Thanks, i just wondered if the renwax affected the burnishing in the motto & trademark, i,m going to use this renwax for the first time myself on some of my blades, can you give me a few tips on applying renwax to the blade & motto please so i do not damage the burnish ?

    On new daggers, that is daggers I purchase, I usually give the blade a wipe with a soft acetone or alcohol moistened pad. This removes any dirt and oils that may be present on the blade from inproper handling. However the acetone should ONLY be used on the blade, it will also remove laquer and paint. I then apply the Renwax, and as per manufacturers instructions wipe with a soft cloth before the wax is dry. I also use it on the scabbard and wood grip.

    Applying Ren wax you may want to use a small piece of cotton cloth..and just dab it in the Ren wax tin. Apply it like you do car wax and allow 1 minute to dry...then rub it off with a clean cloth. You will have an acrylic seal..on your blade.

    @ Wolfgang....That is a nice dirty Sauer example. Untouched.......which has more beauty than a totally cleaned example. Best Larry

    Thank you Larry.
    Here is a Haastert and Bull. I love the bunny logo. I think this one is ok as well.

    Hi Mac...sorry for the confusion...if it were me,,I would avoid putting it on the motto if any darkening remains...but I would be careful to go around those areas...or maybe use a Qtip to apply it. Once it dries...just be careful to rub it off. I myself do not go inbetween the lettering..but just closely around it. Thats its! Larry
