SA Daggers

/Tag:SA Daggers

German SA DaggersThe German SA Dagger was originally commissioned by Hitler for members of the National Socialist German Workers Party or NSDAP (National Sozialistische Deutsche Arbeiter Partei). These daggers were designed for use as dress accessories and functioned as symbols of status and rank within the Nazi party. The design of the SA dagger, like its counterpart the SS Dagger, incorporated elements of the “Holbein” dagger which was a German hunting knife that dates back to the 16th century. One of the primary design features of the SA knife is the Nazi eagle with its wings spread wide, grasping a wreath that contains a very prominent swastika in its center. Other prominent features include the SA symbol within a circle at the top of the wooden grip, the phrase “Alles fur Deutschland” (Everything for Germany) inscribed in the center of the steel blade in Gothic script, and a distinctive curved grip fashioned from various woods including walnut, birch, and maple. Some of the early versions of the German SA dagger exhibit some important differences compared to later knives. These include the lack of the circular SA insignia, a different phrase inscribed in the blade: Deutschland Uber Alles” (Germany Above All), and a larger nickel eagle design. However these early models of the SA dagger are extremely rare and only a small number of them are known to exist.

Carl Eickhorn Partial Ground Rohm SA Dagger – Personalized

Price on Request
A very nice "field ground" Rohm SA Dagger by Eickorn. In 1934, Ernst Rohm was executed on Hitler's orders, and all inscriptions on these daggers were ordered removed (ground away) by Hitler. There are several points of the inscription still identifiable on this one due to the crude nature of the “field grinding”...

SA Dagger — Carl Eickhorn Ground Rohm

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A very nice factory ground Röhm dagger here, with everything going for it including an exceptional blade! The grip condition couldn’t be much better. Aside from the crack in the lower right front portion of the grip, this grip would be hard to upgrade! The finish is smooth and beautiful, with all the right wood grain characteristics we’ve come to love from these early Eickhorn daggers.

Absolutely mint, in the full sense of the word. This Emil Voos (RZM M7/2) SA Dagger looks like it just came off the shelf, or out of a very well kept time capsule at very least.

Helbig was one of the best makers of SA daggers when it came to the art of fitting their parts together.

The grip eagle eagle has retained about 99% of its original detail, appearing to have not suffered any dings or harsh use. The SA roundel has all of it’s enamel and is in superb condition!

SA Dagger by Peter Lungstrass

This item has Sold or is On Hold
A very nice, early (1933-35) SA Dagger by a seldom encountered maker, Peter Lungstrass. This is a true beauty! Very deep cherry colored grip, with scabbard to match. The wood of the grip is extremely smooth with very few imperfections (you have to look close to find them). The metal fittings are a bit loose, but there are absolutely no signs of the pommel nut ever having been removed so the loose fit is likely due to some minor shrinkage over time, and not from being messed with. The metal of the cross guards are near perfect, with no signs of oxidation or tarnishing at all. The Inspection Stamp “Wm” (Westmark) is clearly visible on the lower cross guard (on the same side as the maker mark)...

  • SA Dagger by SMF Solingen

SA Dagger by SMF Solingen

This item has Sold or is On Hold
This is one of the first SMF made SA Daggers I’ve come across. They seem to be very hard to find despite only rating a 5 out of 10 on the McSARR scale. The grip is a very attractive light brown tone, almost having a slight orange hue. The eagle has a nice age patina that matches the nickel guards and scabbard fittings, and has miraculously retained an honest 98% of its factory detail - barely worn at all. The SA roundel has lost about 30% of its brown background enamel to wear, and shows some age discoloration along the bottom rim...
