SA Dagger Maker's Marks

Below are the trademarks and variations of all the known makers of early SA/NSKK daggers produced in the 1933-1936 time frame. The photos include a portion of the lower crossguard so that the distance of the trademark from the guard can be noted. With the two exceptions noted below, that distance will not vary by more than 1mm to 2mm. Trademarks placed differently than shown should be viewed skeptically and expert advice sought. The exceptions are the Carl Eickhorn small double ovals and the E. Pack and Sohn blacksmith. These marks can show considerably more variation in their placement.

By 1936, these trademarks were superseded by RZM M7 code numbers and for a brief period, some makers placed both some form of the mark and the RZM symbol on the blade.

Note: while the following firms produced transitional and/or RZM marked SA daggers, they are not known to have produced maker marked SA daggers -

Anvil (Franz Pils & Sohne, Steinbach)
Dreiturn (J.A. Schmidt & Sohne, Solingen)
Arthur Evertz, Solingen
Josef Hack GmbH, Steyr
Carl Halbach, Solingen
Robert Klaas, Solingen-Ohligs
Ernst Mandewirth, Solingen
Karl Oschmann & Co., Brotterode
Franz Pils & Sohne, Steyr
Pumeto (Lauterjung & Sohn, Solingen)
Gubr. Weyersberg, Solingen-Ohligs
Ludwig Zeitler, Wien

As new marks are identified, they will be added to the list. Currently, 213 makers and 247 marks are shown. If anyone has questions or suggestions, please contact Vern@GermanDaggers.com.
