It doesn't looks like a real Böker.

Looks like a real Boker to me... a real nice Boker. I'd like to see more pics including the scabbard.

Very nice! The scabbard looks like it still has quite a bit of lacquer too...

I agree, there is a lot of varnish left on the scabbard of the dagger. The photograph shows where the scabbard of the dagger rubbed against clothing; there are signs of wear. On the opposite side, the varnish is almost completely preserved.

Comparing the first pic to the other shot of the motto, it looks more far down. Imo

Good afternoon, in the penultimate photo where the motto is visible like not in other photos. I took this photo in direct sunlight to show that the motto was etched with acid and not laser. Another photo of the manufacturer Böker was also taken. When posting photos on the forum, the quality of the photo is greatly lost. I can post photos of specific segments of the dagger for better quality.

, Motto on non Röhm blades is around 27mm, this one looks more.

Wow, this SS Böker is in top condition, with plenty of typical features.

A super find!
