SA Dagger [Early Version] by J. P. Sauer & Sohn (Gegr. 1751), Suhl

This SA [Sturmabteilung] Dagger in MINT condition. Model 1933. The total length is 37.3 cm. Early Nickel fittings, lower guard with "Sa" stamp. The Dagger has the maker mark on the blade: J. P. Sauer & Sohn (Gegr. 1751), Suhl.

Grip: This example has outstanding early nickel mounts throughout. Studying the tang nut, it does not appear as though this dagger has ever been apart. These crossguards are the typical Suhl type guards, with the lower example having the distinctive curvature. These mounts have smooth surfaces, crisp edges, and precise accent grooves. The reverse lower guard is Gruppe marked "Sa". The grip is the typical walnut style, which is made from gunstock wood. This grip is a medium contour ridge example, having fine brown color with close vertical graining. The grip is in perfect condition throughout, and absolutely fits the crossguards like a rubber glove. This grip is complete with a nicely positioned SA runes button, having perfect enameled surfaces. The nickel grip eagle is the style with "beak that points upwards slightly". The wing feathering, talons, wreath, and mobile swastika are still in perfect condition.

Blade: The blade is a real beauty, being mirror bright, and having all of its crossgraining. Other than the usual runner marks, this blade is in mint condition. The SA motto is extremely dark, and really jumps off this blade, having 100% of the factory backgrounds. The reverse ricasso is matching etched with a double oval. The oval contains the firm's name and location "J.P. Sauer & Sohn/Suhl". In the center of the ovals is a warrior carrying some sort of a spear. Below the ovals is the start up date of the Sauer firm, "gegr. 1751". The blade shoulders perfectly meet the lower crossguard contours.

Scabbard: The scabbard shell is straight throughout. This shell has outstanding anodizing which is still at 100%. Very fine anodizing here. The scabbard mounts are in perfect condition to include the lower ball. All screws are present and they are unturned. Attached to the carrying ring is a fine three piece hanger. This hanger appears to have all matching leather, and is most likely original-to-this-piece. The leather throughout the short hanger, belt loop, and retainer loop is all in good shape, and the hanger has the nickel hardware. The grip retainer loop has a good working snap, and the belt loop is complete with a pebbled surface "D" ring.
