Here we have an Early Model 1933 SA Dagger (Sturmabteilung Dienstdolch) by Christianswerk of Solingen. The blade on this one looks good. The acid etched “Alles für Deutschland” motto and “Christianswerk Solingen” maker mark are both beautifully executed! The crossgrain shines nicely in the light. The tip comes to a perfect point and the fit remains nice and tight! This blade rates a Exc+/Exc++. It shows age spotting, age grey and the common runner marks/surface scratches throughout. The scabbard is steel based and brown anodized. It shows surface scratches throughout and one large pressure mark to the obverse. It has a nice brown finish! The scabbard fittings are solid nickel-silver. The lower has patinaed and shows a circular sticker marking to the reverse. The ball has a bruise to the bottom yet it continues to hold a nice round shape. All four scabbard screws remain tightly intact. The scabbard / crossguard fit is near perfect! The reverse of the lower crossguard is stamped “Nrh” (Niederrhein). The brown hardwood grip looks good. It has a few cracks, one chip and pressure marks throughout. The solid nickel eagle is beautifully detailed and has a near perfect fit. The SA roundel is worn yet has a perfect fit and retains 97%+ of its enamel. A fine piece.
