    Default SA Honor Dagger...original?

    Hi guys,

    I need your help in verifying if this SA dagger is genuine.

    This presentation dagger comes with some documents of the owner.

    Thanks for any opinions.

    Bad copy.....just look at this "honour"dagger.
    Scabbard is rusty, blade has wear...but a pristine grip, new as hell......and new it is.
    Scabbard fittings are new but top screws are heavily rusted...hmmm what happened to the Original scabbard fittings?
    Parts Original with newly added guards, grip and scabbard fittings....bad combi!

    The engraving is very crude which lacks depth and is sloppy. If I were the SA man receiving this..I would want refund.

    A plain early SA Eickhorn dagger would show more craftmanship and beauty.

    Agreeing with the previous comments, IMO a classic example of somebody who has had at least some training/experience in the gunsmith trades of engraving and checkering (this was also not unknown with European workers circa 1970's usually with better condition examples, and better workmanship - it varies). That for this dagger also was postwar applied to a "beater" (poor) condition standard issue SA dagger/parts to try and make it more valuable. Likewise with the supposed supporting "documentation" that has been added to try and establish (supposedly) some "provenance" for the dagger. Best Regards, Fred

    All of the above are certainly true, but even the "documents" are suspicious. Why would the recipient of a numbered high honor dagger be a common soldier?

    Nice try. Ruined a decent original dagger though
    - even if it was a worn example.........
