I love the look of the maker mark on this one! The blade on this one looks great! The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Carl Wüsthof Solingen” maker mark are both dark, crisp and beautifully executed! The crossgrain is easily visible and shines nicely in the light. The fit remains nice and tight and the tip comes to a perfect point! This blade rates an Exc++. It shows the common surface scratches and minor age greying throughout. The steel based, brown anodized scabbard looks excellent! It continues to remain completely dent free and holds 90%+ of its original factory lacquer. There is oxidization spotting throughout. The solid nickel scabbard fittings and crossguard appear to have been cleaned with subtle scratches throughout. The ball remains perfectly round and 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 “S” (Schlesien). The brown hardwood grip looks decent. It has a few hairline cracks and chips from flakes along with the odd pressure marks. 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!
