    Default RZM Marked SS Dagger For Review.

    Greetings everyone,

    There is an auction coming up in about a week near me that has this SS dagger. I am sure it contains original parts, but I don't know enough about them to make an informed decision. To me, the motto and RZM logo look good, as does the rest of it. The handle is what worries me. The grip eagle looks to be a replacement. I apologize for the poor quality of the pictures, they are all I have at the moment. Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks!

    Hi RZM..... your suspicions are correct!!...This particular maker 807/36 is known to still carry over into the mid period the early craftmanship seen on early type SS daggers.
    . With this maker you should be able to compare it to the 120/34 and 121/34 SS producers as the quality is the same.
    This one IMO is "roadkill"..comprised of parts and recent junk. I cant say much for the eagle as it could be a late alluminum type..but hard to say for sure due to the auction house photos.
    The grip is bogus..which is a commonly seen type on parts daggers..the wood is nothing seen on early to mid period examples. In the present condition that this dagger is in...this grip is too crispy and sharp to belong as the black paint does not show the slightest bit of fading..or wear for a 1936 timeline.
    Poor image quality...this dagger has been "Frankensteined"......be patient and save your money Regards Larry

    Well Larry covered it

    Ive seen this auction too, first toughts: its at its best parts dagger with good blade?.
    The crossguards lack the nickel quality the 807/36 that ive seen do have.
    Crossguards are plated zinq alloy ( on the internet this is better visisble) and the grip eagle is from alu.
    Grip is repro
    bad bad dagger.

    Thanks for the info guys, I will definitely save my money for something better. After I got to looking at it again, I started seeing how low quality it really was. They also had a lot of other repro stuff in this auction. I guess that should have been a clue! lol. I just thought that maybe this one had a chance.
