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

    I know that it is almost sacrilegious, but SA/NSKK daggers have not been of great interest to me. As a result I packed my few SA daggers into a box when we moved into our new house 32 years ago, and that is where they have stayed since then. Now that I am finally going to have a room for my collection, I decided to dig them out. Just like Christmas, right after Christmas.
    Attached is a photo of the daggers. All but two had been in storage. They were wrapped in acid free tissue, and survived the long storage without any changes.
    Since my knowledge on SA daggers is a little weak, and these daggers were purchased before forums and good reference books, I would like to show them here for opinions when I take individual photographs. I will of course research them myself first, but the experienced eyes of other forum members will hopefully help identify any scrap iron. Included among the daggers are a couple of full Rohm blades, I researched these way back then, but I know they are a minefield.

    You've certainly got enough considering you are not really interested!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Not sacrilegious at all IMO (but then I have only one SA dagger). Some here might say, that a few seem to have an unhealthy fixation bordering on the pathological in regards to SS regalia, while others dont have much interest in that field.
    To each his own, I guess.

    Secondly, if thats the collection of one with 'not much interest in SA/NSKK daggers, I would be interested in hearing where you main Collection interest lies!
    Looks like a decent collection to me....., to say the least.

    Hi Wolfgang,

    They all look great already but it will be interesting to see which makers you have & condition of the blades & also the full Rohms

    Well Wolfgang it would be a pleasure seeing these daggers in close up!
    So far its looking very promising, ive already seen a few i would love to see in full glory.
    The SA daggers all look alike at the start but when you dig deeper into the material you see the characteristics of makers etc...then its getting realy interesting....history starts to live..

    Me too. I thought of several snide remarks in the same vein
