    Default My SA dagger C.Eppenstein -Sohne Solingen

    Hello all,

    Finally got around to photographing my one and only SA dagger which is made by C.Eppenstein -Sohne Solingen with cross guard group marking HO. After all the hassles of getting it through Australian Customs I'm extremely happy with it. I've wanted one since I was about 10 years old when I saw a repo in the local war museum gift shop. I begged and begged and I remember my father saying if you really want it, you'll wait until you can afford a real one. Here we are almost 20 years later. There are some minor age marks towards the tip of the blade which don't really show on the photos. I have tried to Simichrome them out, however I gave up as I didn't want to take any of the cross grain away. I would love an SS dagger but can't see myself getting it past the watchful eyes of the wife.

    Alex

    You did well to wait. The repro today would be worth Nothing and the example you have now is a Beauty and sure to hold and increase it's value! Nice pick up! Next one is an SS?

    Amazing that customs would give you grief over something that is smaller than 1/2 the butcher's knives around.

    Nice SA dagger, definitely a keeper. Presumably customs wanted there 'taxes' ?

    Great example of an early SA dagger, nice marked with the Hochland Gau at its typical place!
