SA Dagger [Early Version] by F. W. Backhaus, Solingen

This SA [Sturmabteilung] F.W. Backhaus in EXC++ condition. Model 1933. The total length is 37.8 cm. Early Nickel fittings, lower guard with "BO" stamp. The Dagger has very rare maker mark on the blade: F. W. Backhaus, Solingen.

Grip: The crossguards of this fine dagger have a dull nickel patina. The crossguards have good smooth surfaces, crisp edge and precise accent grooves. The gruppe mark is “Wf”. The grip is a very dark red mahogany wood. It is of medium to sharp ridge construction. It has an excellent look about it and if you focus deeply in the recesses there is some nice grain in the wood. The grip is a slightly odd shape as it is more narrow at the bulbous point than usual. This grip is in near mint condition. It just shows normal usage. The SA runes button is still good showing age in the surfaces but no hits to the enamel. The nickel grip eagle is a fine example having a high-necked variety bird and details are still there to the head, breast feathering, wing feathering, legs, wreath and mobile swastika.

Blade: The blade shows some very minor spotting, but over 95% of the blade is clean, shiny and shows a very nice cross grain! The motto, “Alles fűr Deutschland”, or translated, “Everything for Germany”, is very crisp. Same with the Maker’s mark, “F.W. Backhaus Solingen”.

Scabbard: The scabbard is the anodized type, showing your typical surface crazing, but no dents or ding. The solid nickel metal fittings are just as nice as the guards, and match their patina perfectly.
