Rare Maker! Original Third Reich Early NSKK Dagger By E. Gierling- This original Third Reich Early NSKK Dagger manufactured by E. Gierling, which is a rare and desirable maker. The wooden grip presents itself in remarkable condition, boasting rich brown tones that speak to its enduring quality. Adorning the grip is the iconic grip eagle, accompanied by the SA roundel with minor corrsion. The eagle has detailed features such as wing feathering, wreath, and swastika still discernible, but worn over time and some slight minor corrosion. The seamless integration of the grip with the solid nickel crossguards, displaying a gentle patina. Notably, the lower reversed crossguard bears the mark "S" indicative of its association with the Schlesien Gau District.

Etched with the SA motto "Alles für Deutschland" (All for Germany), the blade retains a significant amount of detailing, but most of the dark etching is gone. The reverse of the blade proudly bears the maker's mark "E. Gierling Solingen
" with minimal dark etching still intact. The blade itself retains a very good amount of cross graining on both sides with typical minor surface scratches and runner marks. The blade shoulders align flawlessly with the contours of the crossguard.

The scabbard, characterized by its straight form, maintains commendable condition with its black painted finish. Some of the paint on the scabbard have small worn/chipped off and has some small scratches and scrapes throughout. Remarkably free from dings or dents, the surface does not exhibit no surface rust. The fittings, crafted from solid nickel silver, harmonize seamlessly with the crossguards' patina, but at one time it looks like someone tried to clean the upper. The lower drag is in excellent condition, but the ball at the end is dented. The original screws securely anchor the mounts. Overall this Rare Early NSKK dagger is in very good to excellent
