Up for sale is a beautiful and original Aesculap SA Dagger. This piece looks to have never been cleaned or taken apart. The daggers crossguards are very nice, with all parts fitting perfectly. The lower reverse guard is Gruppe marked “Sw”.
The grip is correctly varnished by Aesculap company giving it a very nice patina. Like the cross guards, the grip fits like a puzzle piece furthering our assessment of an unmessed with example. The SA runes button shows heavy signs of wear due to the varnishing, while the matching nickel grip eagle is full of detail and great shape!
The scabbard is another fine example although most of its color has gone to due storage. Finally the blade of this piece is in great shape with very nice etching commonly seen with Aesculap Daggers. The blade is marked with the Aesculap/Tuttlingen trademark. Also an interesting side note is that, Aesculap made medical instruments, but with the large demand for SA daggers in the early war Aesculap helped fill this demand by making these daggers.
