Very Nice! This one rates 8 out of 10 for rarity! The blade on this one looks great! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Paul A Henckels Solingen” maker mark are both crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible from hilt to tip. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates a solid Exc++. It shows the common surface scratches and age greying/spotting throughout. The steel based, brown anodized scabbard looks great! It continues to remain completely dent free and hold a nice brown finish to it. It shows oxidization spotting throughout. The solid nickel scabbard fittings look great. The lower reverse has some wear to it. The ball has a wee bump to it yet it retains a nice round shape. All four screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “Wf” (Westfallen). The brown hardwood grip looks great! There are the odd pressure marks and flakes yet no chips or cracks! The solid nickel eagle retains beautiful details and has a perfect fit. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 99%+ of its enamel. A great piece!
