    Default Need opinions on SS Rohm Hammesfahr dagger...

    Hi all,

    First I'll apologize for the horrible camera phone photos. If there is one thing I wish had never been invented it's the camera phone. That way people would be forced to buy and use a real digital camera.

    Now that I have that out of the way, I have an opportunity to buy a Hammesfahr Rohm SS Dagger and would hate to pass on it simply because the owner doesn't own a digital camera. This is direct from the vet's son; stored away in the vet's footlocker until he passed recently.

    I believe these photos will probably tell enough of the dagger's story for some of you seasoned SS dagger collectors to tell whether or not there is concern. The price (at this point) is reasonable, but I know there are other potential buyers so I'd like to get some feedback as soon as possible.

    Question... I'll be on a call with the owner this afternoon. Any advice on questions that I should ask about this would be greatly appreciated. I know one question I need to ask is whether or not the full Rohm inscription is present since he didn't shoot the entire length of the blade (That happens a lot, not sure why people don't shoot the entire blade).

    Lots of luck with those pictures-

    So the photos are completely useless? I thought perhaps there were some key elements that you can go by with these (e.g. cut of the grip against the cross guards, position of the eagle and the roundel, position of the maker's mark relative to the cross guard, etc). No?

    Ok... I took a leap of faith on this dagger after speaking with the owner on the phone, hearing the dagger's story, and asking some key questions. Sometimes just speaking to the owner one-on-one, versus simply passing on a potential gem due to bad photos, can go a long way. This time it paid off!

    Here are some photos I took of the dagger. It is a partial Rohm. The blade and scabbard are not in the best condition, but I think as an overall package I did very well

    Thanks Ronnie! Definitely unmeshed with according to the vet's son. His father passed away and the dagger, along with an HJ armband, Heer buckle, and a civilian armband were found in his footlocker. I love hearing about things like this being uncovered after all these years! The fact it was never played with by kids, or fondled by dozens of people makes it that much more desirable to me.

    Stupid question Ronnie... what do you mean by "belter"?
