Default SA Dagger for Review

Not sure about this one. I want to say it's good, but the eagle is throwing me off. What do you all think ?

Thumbs up

What about the grip eagle bothers you? Looks like a well conditioned RZM with a pretty nice blade by Arthur Evertz. Get the seller to knock it down to $300 and it'd be even nicer!

Only thing that catches my eye is how off center the SA Rune is on the flat... is that common?

I guess I thought the eagle should be more detailed.

I think it is the angle of the picture.

I agree with Almost Samurai's comment; the off-center SA button was the first thing I noticed about this piece. And I would say no, this is not common, in my experience. Frankly, I'm surprised that the RZM inspector at the Evertz factory allowed this piece to get through.

"Here a link to the exact same dagger with off set Rondel."

Very interesting, so this was a die issue of that producer? At least for a certain amount of the daggers?
It just struck me as odd and I also have a bad habit of everything having to be symmetrical

Its a nice looking SA, I guess no scabbard?
The Rondel being off set does make it interesting and the
fact there's more than one...so not a parts piece.
Go for it.
