A rare bird! This one rates 9 out of 10 for rarity on McSaars SA rarity rating list! The blade on this one is in excellent condition! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Julius Bahrl Jr. Solingen” maker mark are both crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible all the way from the hilt to the tip. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates Exc++. It only shows spotting throughout and the common surface scratches. The steel based, brown anodized scabbard looks excellent. It shows some age spotting/scratches, yet it remains completely dent free and has nice brown finish to it. The solid nickel silver scabbard fittings look excellent matching the crossguards in color and patina! The ball remains perfectly round all four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “Ns” (Niedersachsen). The dark brown hardwood grip looks great. It shows the common pressure marks throughout along with two wee chips to the top corners. The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful details and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 98%+ of its enamel. I’ve been looking for this maker for quite some time now!
