    Default SA dagger (Giesen & Forsthoff) 3 piece hanger - opinions!

    Hi,

    Finally the owner of this SA-dagger is ready to sell.
    ...I have bought other items from him earlier.

    What do you think of it?
    And what would the price be for a Giesen & Forsthoff dagger in this condition?

    Regards

    Nice NSKK dagger which rates a 7 on rarity. Gruppe mark is correct..and the overall appearance is worn..but everything is matching in condition. Lovely

    A rare to see black anodized scabbard which is highly collectable among SA / NSKK collectors. I have an August Merten with the same qualities and condition as yours above..including a very worn black anodized scabbard. Below is my August Merten..and very comparable to yours. Thanks for sharing. Regards Larry .

    I like it-a good decent original piece in solidly nice condition and by a maker that is not all that easy to find. A fine Giesen & Forsthoff NSKK with an also uncommon 3 piece hanger in matching condition. Nice crossgraining to the blade and a rich dark etching shows that it has never been abused. If you can get it for under a grand, you'd be doing good, in my opinion.

    Guys hope I am wrong as I am viewing on my mobile phone, but it looks to have been re tipped which in my opinion sadly will affect the price of the dagger, as I say hope I am wrong, maybe one of you guys can take a better look on your pc , otherwise a very nice example, sorry for casting a little doubt on it,
    Cheers Ronnie

    I wondered that myself, Ronnie-the angle of the 1st photo makes it look that way, but the 2nd photo does not. I am thinking it was just the photo that makes it look like a bad tip.

    The previous owner had the dagger for 50 years.

    Today we agreed on a price 690USD.
    ...hope it is okay?

    I have wanted this dagger since he showed it to me, years ago.
    It is my first.

    Don't know if the dagger has been re tipped.

    Regards

    Would it be possible to get a measurement of the blade length?

    I can measure the blade, when I get the dagger next week.

    Here is a test you could try - I just tried it myself
    Save the first of my pictures on your pc.
    Then open this picture and zoom until the total lenght of the dagger measures 350mm on a 1:125 scale ruler.(measure the dagger on the screen).
    ...then measure the blade lenght(in the same zoom), it says 220mm.

    Of course this is not a reliable test, but funny and probably not all wrong.

    I will measure the dagger when I get it home - then we know.

    Just had a look on my PC as back home now, and what a very nice example you have there just love the matching 3 part hangers,.. and scabbard....... also had a closer look at the tip of the dagger and I think it has been re-tipped but also think it's been done a long time ago, I am sure you will find out if I am wright or wrong when you have it in hand ( I hope I am wrong)
    thanks for showing
    cheers Ronnie

    I was so entranced by the boobs and butt of the daggers condition..and never looked below the belt. It does appear to be blunted..and agree a measurement would be the best course. Its still a great all early period dagger. Regards Larry
