Another beautiful SA dagger from the seldom seen maker, Wagner & Lang.
The grip on this dagger is a nice chocolate tone in near perfect condition. The nickel guards appear to be uncleaned, and show very little wear. Pommel nut shows no marks from pliers (has not been removed) and no swirl marks. The grip eagle has retained about 95% of its original factory detail, with some modest wear to the normal areas of the breast, legs and outer most wreath areas.
Aside from a couple spots of oxidation, the blade is nice and bright, with a strong prominent cross grain throughout. Both the makers mark (Wagner & Lang Solingen) and the motto share the same original deep gray tone – absolutely gorgeous!
The anodized scabbard body has some normal wear as shown in the photos, but no dings or dents, save a small impact ding to the tip ball and a minor ding to the side of the tip fitting. Scabbard fittings are age toned consistent with the grip fittings, which we like to see; a matching set indeed!
