Howdy all - this particular logo is currently being offered on a SA dagger blade. Im pretty sure its no good and have concerns over a number of issues including thickness of lettering and definition of the tree. Happy to here contrary thoughts but if it is a fake its not far off being pretty good....

Fake, Heinrich Böker never made SA daggers with this type of trademark. Logo looks bad anyway.

One red flag is the late, plated crossguard on what is purported to be a dagger made in 1936.

The branches on the tree don't look like the original.

I thought the same thing Dave - also the 'gate' through to the Tree is completely closed...

Sturm,

Not all Bokers have pimpling in the etch. Many do, but don't exclude one that has not if everything else is good
