Early Haenel Dagger
Let me show you my latest SA Dagger.
It's my first SA Dagger from the non-Solingen-makers.
The blade has some small issues, and the wood also has some small issues, but overall the condition is good. The fit grip/crossguard is very good and most crossgrain is still visible.

Beautiful Dolch and that must be one of the rarer makers. Thanks for posting!

You got a fantastic dagger. Wish I had it. And their bike catalog from the 20s says they make "rifles and bicycles"
Indeed, an Excellent piece for Any collection. I like the much held and darkened grip-the owner of this one must have walked around with his hand on it continuously. In any case, you found yourself a beauty. Nice to see the non-Solingen makers!

I have always admired these Haenel daggers. They are one of the nicest early pieces made in the Third Reich. The oak grips, and graceful, low step cross guards, and impeccable fit are a trademark of this manufacturer. I've seen several of these as ground Rohms as well. Thanks for sharing!
WOW what a sweetheart!!....Like an beautiful woman walking into a room...these Suhl daggers are crowd pleasers. Well Done!!
It is not the size of a Collection in History that matters......Its the size of your Passion for it!!

Very minor issues, but overall a really nice dagger - Congrats.........!
Chris you did well!
Although a common maker this one has the hardware that we are looking for.
Great grip, with a good fit, lovely blade and and a straight scabbard.
I Always fancied the Suhl low step guards, if your a SA dagger collector a Suhl maker is a must!
Thx for showing
