    Default Serialized SS Partial Rohm Ehrendolch for opinions...

    Hi all,

    I just received this partial Rohm Serialized SS dagger in the mail yesterday and thought I'd share it here for opinions. This is my second Partial Rohm SS, however my first is in much nicer condition overall, with the exception of the blade.

    The scabbard on this one is very pitted and silver in tone, with rust spotting. A couple screws are missing from the scabbard fittings so my assumption is the vet attempted to refurbish it and in the process stripped what remained of the scabbard paint down to the metal. The cross guards also appear to have been very lightly steel wooled, although you have to look very closely to see the fine grain left by the wool. The grip has suffered quite a bit of shrinkage, and has cracked in a couple of places. Oddly enough, the areas where the wood actually chipped away are smoothed over. Typically when I see a chip the wood around the chipped piece is still somewhat jagged and sharp.

    The blade is fairly nice, considering the condition of the grip and scabbard. Where Rohm's name was ground away you can see a swirl pattern as if the soldier tried to clean up the roughness of the grind... did a bad job of it

    For the money I feel it was a good purchase, and the fact its both a partial Rohm AND a serialized dagger as well makes it a somewhat rare find in any condition as far as I'm concerned.

    Would love to hear what everyone thinks...

    Hi Dzyner,,you wrote a great description! Although the dagger is on the rough side, I do not see anything that would raise a "Red Flag". The logo is in the correct position for this maker. Congrats! regards Larry

    Thanks for the feedback guys! She's not perfect, but I'm fine with that Ade, I checked on the number and unfortunately its not in the database. Oh well, maybe one day we'll locate her owner.
