    Default SA Maker F.Dick and the "dots"

    This SA maker has confused many who do not collect these types. This maker has 6 logo variants,,and is mostly confusing in discerning the difference between standard and Rohm inscriptions. What separates the logos is the little and sometimes unnoticeable "dot" on the off end of the logo.

    The first 2 photos are the "Non-Rohm" Variant with and without the dots and further away from the crossguard.

    The next photo which I have one of has the logo very close to the crossguard allowing room for the Rohm inscription,,and this variant also has "with and without" the dots.

    The last 2 photos are the "across the blade variant" "with and without the dots". This also would allow for the Rohm inscription to be applied,,but I have not seen an example showing this variant with the inscription. If someone has a photo of this variant,, please post it. The photos come from the collectors of GDC member Hermann V,, R.R. Pitbull,,and myself.

    This maker is most noticeable by there dark grips. Occasionally lighter ones have been encountered.

    I had a chance to pick up one of these a few months ago and lost out on it. A beautiful dagger.

    This is just my opinion and not a matter of fact.....but we see makers ( Like Eickhorn) that use more than one logo with subtle changes in appearance. My opinion,,on the reason why,,is it was a matter of keeping track of production numbers. I will use F.Dick as an example,,during their production run an X number of daggers used the dots with the logo furthest away from the crossguard,,with and with out and the same with Rohm closest to the crossguard....etc etc. What are your thoughts on the reasons why there are logo variations by the same maker?

    This would be my best educated guess as well.
