    Default SA Dagger and Lessons Learned

    I recently acquired a very nice Aesculap-made SA Dagger, Sw gruppe marked.

    The lessons I have learned are first of all, cheaper is not always the best way to go. The first SA dagger I bought was not a very good specimen - which is why it was cheap. It has multiple issues (but I still like it). Secondly, items bought sight unseen over the Internet require a bit more study before plunking down the hard-earned cash.

    At any rate, here is my 'keeper'. The hanger is pretty worn. Sorry about the blurry picture but it's the best I have at the moment. Assmann, DRGM marked.

    Thank you, Ade. Your opinion is very valuable.
    I was browsing through some other threads, and found the link you posted re: SS Dagger - Dienstdolch - Infos von Sammlern fr Sammler - SS Dienstdolch - and found the little story at the bottom of the page regarding the life of the SS Dagger a nice little read. I need to brush up on my very rusty German.

    Hi Roger, if your German is rusty, try here:

    Google Translate

    Just copy and past the web address into the box. Some of the translations are not perfect, but it helps.

    It is indeed a super little site.

    Cheers, Ade.

    vey nice example SA dagger you have there Roger, it does make you think when you hand over a chunk of cash, but when you see what's out there and some people asking a little less cash for a piece of crap !! thats when you know it was worth spending more it will always turn up trumps ,
    thanks for showing Ronnie

    What i try to say is that i've seen much worse so depending on how much, or little, you payed i think it's an allright dagger..
    Otherwise you're right.

    Hi Roger,

    Very nice Aesculap dagger. Your words are correct, but always be careful in your internet purchases, some bad itens are priced like the good ones. I think the best way is study carefully the item pictures before purchase it and if is needed require to seller better pictures from the obscure details. I never accept to purchase itens offered with only blurried pictures.

    Regards.

    Ricardo
