Here we have an Early Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Julius Bahrl Jr. of Solingen. A fine looking blade on this one. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Julius Bahrl Jr. Solingen” maker mark are both beautifully executed! The crossgrain remains visible to most of the blade. The tip comes to a sharp point and the fit remains nice and tight! This blade rates a Exc. It has been re-pointed, shows pitting , heavy age grey and surface scratches throughout. The scabbard is steel based brown anodized then brown painted. 95% of the paint remains intact. It remains completely dent free! The solid nickel-silver scabbard fittings match the crossguards quite well. The ball retains a nice round shape and all four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect and closes with a snap! The reverse of the lower crossguard is marked “Wf” (Westfallen). The brown hardwood grip looks fine. There is a repair to the top of the eagle’s left wing. The eagle may have been replaced. It also has the odd chip and flake. The solid nickel eagle retains great detail. The SA roundel has a perfect fit and retains 95%+ of its enamel. An inexpensive option.
