    Default SA fully ground Rohm Ehrendolch by Eickhorn

    Hi Guys, I always wanted to own a Rohm dedication dagger. I find SA Stabschef Ernst Rohm an interesting character (aside from his personal life) being from the left wing of the Party. I finally managed to get a Rohm dagger, over 20 years ago now, thanks to a friend in Canada.

    This example is made by Carl Eickhorn, who in my opinion are one of the best dagger makers of the era. The dagger has had a hard life prior to me getting it and some has literally used it as a hammer! Maybe done by the Vet who picked it up, who knows? So the grip has suffered somewhat.

    The blade has been professionally factory re ground to remove all traces of the dedication. But the postioning of the early style company trademark close up to the crossguard belies it's true origins. Another detail is the factory benchmark production number, here a "2" under the crossguard. Numbers range from 1 to 9.

    The crossguard is group marked "Wf" for SA Gruppe Westfalen. This would of course fit in with a Canadian Veteran liberating the dagger as the area was fought over by the British and Canadian Armies in 1945.

    Cheers, Ade.

    They were indeed Nick. My first dagger was an SA (not shown it yet) and was priced at 26, bought from my late dealer friend Mike Long. This was in the late 1970's. But you have to bear in mind my wages then were about 20 a week as a young man in my first job. The hobby now is becoming a rich mans game and is no longer the hobby it once was for a regular working class man. "Investor" collectors have ruined it for the vast majority.

    Cheers, Ade.
