    Default SA Dagger---Ground motto?

    I have the chance to buy this SA dagger. It looks good in the pictures (despite how bad the pics are). The lady said the maker is Carl Eickhorn. I THINK this may be a ground motto (Rohm) because of how close the makers mark is to the handle. I'm not sure, that is why I'm posting here. She's wanting $525 for it.... any opinions on that? thanks

    Harry, the location of the Eickhorn makers mark being extremely close to the guard is an indicator. They are put closer like this to allow for room to etch the inscription and name. If they were Not on an inscribed blade-ground or otherwise, there is generally a "finger's width" between the mark and the guard. Not all ground Rohm's removed only the name-many you see will have the entire thing removed, name and all. On some occasions, you can still glimpse bits of the removed letters, and on some more carefully ground pieces, you will see no trace of Anything, but the crosshatching of the blade will be showing where it was removed.
