Original German WWII SA Dagger RZM M7/80 by Gustav Spitzer of Solingen
Original Item: Only One Available: This later SA Dagger has not been cleaned in a long while and it appears to not have been taken apart in modern times. The nickel hilt mounts are in good condition having a nice dull look to their surfaces. The crossguards still have smooth surfaces and crisp edges. The accent grooves are quite deeply cut into the surfaces.
The grip is a brown color wood having a nice subtle burl in the center area which could be brought out with a little furniture polish. This grip is in good condition throughout and nicely fits the crossguards. The symbol button is nicely placed and has no damage to the enamel. The nickel grip eagle is the type with point-behind-the-head construction. This bird is in choice condition having crisp detail remaining to the eye, beak, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons and mobile swas.
The scabbard of this example is straight throughout. Also though there is some minor rust in the surfaces but not bad with some brown paint remaining. The scabbard shell is equipped with matching nickel mounts. The lower ball has a dent. The mounts are retained by the original nickel screws.
The blade of this example is still bright. It does have some minor staining in the surfaces a lot of which could come out with a little work. The crossgraining is also still mostly there. The SA motto is deep and crisp having about 50% of the original darkening in the backgrounds. The reverse blade is in the same condition. The reverse ricasso is matching etched with RZM M7/80 denoting Gustav C. Spitzer of Solingen manufactured this dagger.
Overall a nice dagger for a very affordable price.
