    Looks allright does'nt it

    Id say its an average lateperiod.

    Have had one myself, from 7/13 if i remember correct.
    (Passed it on as part of narrowing and specifying my collection)
    The thing i noticed, the raised dots in the motto etching, is it because of poor etching or poor steel qualität? Does anyone know?

    Hi G43...typical late period SA dagger.....looks as though the scabbard throat was removed at one time as you can see the gap between the throat lip and the upper scabbard fitting. It should be flush against each other.

    @ jesper...those bumps are the end result of impurities in the steel. It is a common sight with some makers...mostly seen with Suhl Dagger producers,,,and a few larger producers also. Nothing wrong with a few pimples Regards Larry

    Decent RZM dagger.
    it looks like the blade has been preserved with a non acid free grease, and that changed the color of the burnish from black to redish.
    You can see that its wood is slightly shrunk, it pushes the eagle wings a bit out of the wood, that is often seen.

    bubbles in the Motto are a good sign , they never faked it like that, till now

    Axe & Hauer is one of the Makers Larry pointed out, they all got it in their Motto.

    It looks like the scabbard has been replaced, and the throatlip from the old scabbard is used to make a decent fit with the daggers crossguard.

    Cheers,
    Ger

    Thanks for the idea Gerrit..I posted one from my collection and another Suhl maker..Motto from the producer Melzer and Feller....which this examples retains all the blackening..and shows the wear to the commonly seen "pimples'.

    I'm inclined to agree with Ger on this one. I think that the scabbard has been replaced but the throat was retained. There is no way, of course, to tell when this may have been done-or more importantly, Why, though-it could well have been because it was damaged or it could have been converted from an SA to an NSKK, but who can say? Changed postwar to increase value? As for the rest of it, it's in top shape. The crosshatching on the blade is beautifully sharp and the grip has little to no dents or chipping. If it Has been disassembled, it was done carefully and with a proper nut wrench, as I can see no marring of the nut. So, at best, it has to be considered as an SA first and Possibly as an NSKK, but I would not pay anything more than the value of a late SA for it.
