    It's nice to see that this stuff is still out there. You did real
    well for your $30.

    Thanks Ewan, Alan, and everyone for your comments. Larry, I only put a little WD40 on the blade but it looks better than the pic, and thanks for adding this maker to your list. Best, Hal

    $30 bucks for a top condition Rare maker SA?? Where the heck are these garage sales around Here?? About all you can expect in blades in These parts might be a rusty Barlow missing one of it's grip panels... As Monty Python's Eric Idle always used to say "Ooooh! You Lucky Barstard!"

    I trust that you at the very Least asked the seller if they had any Other military or war stuff-maybe still in the house??

    I like this David Malsch dagger alot as it still retains the crispness of the grip contours. It is still sharp in some areas which is a Big + along with desirable crossgrains on a dagger..grip wear is something searched for when studying SAs. most SA daggers lost their sharpness due to the SA mann holding the grip standing in formation or guard in designated areas.
    The fittings appeared to been cleaned a long time ago....and some patina has returned. Some new owners choose still to put oil or a lubricant on the blade to protect against rust. A warning must be given if this procedure will be followed...that residual oil over the last 7 decades put in there by the returning vet..has dried and hardened on those high ridge areas of the scabbard runners..( see photo below ) The scrape marks seen running horizontal above and below the motto are the hardened runners rubbing against the steel leaving a permanent scar. All untouched SA and SS daggers from the war...will have a certain amount of " Verdigris buildup on the runners. I can only suggest and it is up to the new owner of any of these crafted beauties..that preservation should be the #1 thought in their mind.
    below are photos of the grip sharpness...and a hard look at a scabbard runner....with Verdigris and one what it should look like when it came from the producer new.
    Your blade Hal seems to be in good condition which was well kept by whoever had it last. ....but I mention the use of oil as a warning for any future use as everything in time dries....even oil. Regards Larry
