    Hello Ves. Run away screaming. A ground up fake I'm afraid buddy. Kindest regards.

    Brian.

    The motto font is incorrect. The supposed makers marks are fantasy/stamped. The scabbard should not be wrapped. The cross guards and fittings look brass. Not sure if the letter D is an actual gruppe mark? The handle eagle/adler and tang nut are very bad attempts. At least they were trying to go for a Damascus blade but that too is bad to the core.

    No worries Ves. Glad to help. In it's own way it is rather interesting. It's not a run of the mill fake imo, but rather someone's attempt to recreate an SA dagger. I m not sure what they were looking at for reference but an unusual item to be sure. Perhaps others will have their own opinions on it s origins? Best regards.

    Brian Im glad you opened my eyes I knew it there is something fishy about it. I had doubts about the eagle and the blade writing in the first place,they seemed odd to me,even Im not competent on this kind of items. The guy was asking 200 for it and I hate when a person with this kind of hobby pretending a fake item is original. Anyway its a interesting reproduction indeed. Thanks again Brian, you saved me money

    Best regards!

    I just commented in the thread (below) about a "one look" original. No hard feelings but this is a 1,000 yard fake. Except in silhouette (and that is debatable) it does not even closely resemble an original.
