    Default June 30 1934 - Rohm inscription pattern

    I finally found an SA that I really liked and could afford,Its on its way from Jeff at Meda Militaria.
    ”The grip to this Ground Rohm Eickhorn, looks like it should be on an SA Honor Dagger. As typical for an early Eickhorn SA, this hilt is equip with HE caster marked crossguards. With experience, these deep hand enhanced guards are very apparent when you become familiar with Eickhorn in house produced hardware. The bottom guard is bench marked "3" and the reversed stamped with the Wf gau. What a beautiful fantastic hilt assembly.
    The scabbard is not too bad. It is what you would expect, being anodized brown with nickel fittings. The shell itself is nice and straight, void of any real hits other than the bottom chape, and has decent anodizing. If you look in the photos, the surface does show some crazing, where the lacquer has aged. All 4 factory dome head screws are unturned, and soundly in place.
    And finally, the blade. The surface does show some fine line scratches, but not all that terrible. In light of that, it is full length, unsharpened, and has not been tipped. And actually, it is void of any imperfections, chips, or ticks to the cutting edges. It was a Rohm Honor Dagger at one time, as you can see the Alles fur Deutschland motto a little further down the blade. This was done purposely to accommodate the small double oval Eickhorn trademark, shown on the reverse. The smoothness of the grind on the reverse tells me that this job was accomplished at the factory. Both the motto and the trademark retain a light gray burnish within their etches. Not perfect, but definitely better than an average blade on many early SA's."
    Will submit more pics but i am sure with my skills his will end up being better

    What would you know about victory? I killed a she-wolf in her den, armed with only a knife. I escaped the Caughnawaga Indians who sought to burn me alive. And, I was the sole survivor of a shipwreck at the Battle of Havana. So you'll excuse me if I choose not to follow your advice." ―Israel Putnam speaking to a Continental Army officer at the Battle of Bunker Hill.

    Not sure if these pictures are any better of the etch. Maybe someone would have some tips on how to capture the etch better. I will say this that the etch is nice and deep.

    Hi Scott ..can we see the rest of the dagger ?..to have a Rohm dagger included in this special thread..the WHOLE dagger needs to be present. ...Rohm Daggers are more than just inscriptions..they have character in craft and by the original owner who carried it..right down to the little bump , ding and small surface scratches. pic please !

    Regards Larry

    Im slightly concerned with the etch..as the greyness of the blade gives the impression of a laser etch. If possible could you provide an extreme closeup of the etch.

    This is not what it appears as we get alot of these age grey blades with fully intact mottos from time to time. This grip is not early including the wood filler around the grip eagles head.

    Only a handful of these early prototypes were awarded to SA High leaders..and Im not seeing the quality and other details expected to be seen by Eickhorn.

    A Great point of reference is a thread found on the GDC..and compare to your example..and I would encourage you to post it on that forum also.

    Im not seeing the craftmanship and the details that should be near the same. The inscription sorry to say shoots it for me..it does not appear to be either acid or laser etched. The truth is seen in the runner marks..and those astute know exactly what Im talking about.

    If I am mistaken,.. then please more comments are welcome from the more knowledged of this type of dagger. Please no 3rd party replies ..the forum would be pleased to hear from the actual collector and their knowledge.

    Regards Larry
